Bayonetta is a stylish and cinematic action game, directed by Hideki Kamiya, set for release in 2009 on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
A witch with powers beyond the comprehension of mere mortals, Bayonetta faces-off against countless angelic enemies, many reaching epic proportions, in a game of 100% pure, unadulterated all-out action. Outlandish finishing moves are performed with balletic grace as Bayonetta flows from one fight to another.
With magnificent over-the-top action taking place in stages that are a veritable theme park of exciting attractions, Bayonetta pushes the limits of the action genre, bringing to life its fast-paced, dynamic climax combat.
The latest video shows Bayonetta as a fast action game with hugely over the top, part-demon action with a lot of emphasis on the chick-with-the-guns-and-hair – the eponymous Bayonetta. Scenes are perhaps reminiscent of Devil May Cry – not that this fact should put you off.
I for one am extremely excited about this game and I can’t wait to see what Kamiya has up his sleeve. I’ll cover the game as again as soon as more information comes in.
Bayonetta is scheduled for release on PS3 and Xbox 360 sometime around March 2009.
