Amid concerns about availability, Nintendo has assuaged fears with news of Bayonetta 2’s re-release. The company has announced Bayonetta 2 will be relaunching as a standalone game for the Wii U Feb 19th for $29.99. The original release of the title back in September 2014 included a copy of the first game in the series.
With Bayonetta’s inclusion as a DLC character in Super Smash Bros. coming in February, the re-release gives gamers another opportunity to get familiar with the character at a reduced price.
I think this is good news overall for fans of the series. Including the character of Bayonetta in Super Smash Bros. could draw interest from gamers who might not have been familiar with her. Which in turn could lead to more sales for Bayonetta 2, one of the standout exclusive titles for Wii U.
