Bayonetta is an action hack-and-slash game developed by PlatinumGames. Originally published by Sega for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2009/2010, the game was later re-released and published by Nintendo for the Wii U alongside Bayonetta 2 in 2014. The game is available on the Wii U Nintendo eShop as an individual download; purchasing one of the two games also gives users a discount for the other. A disc version of the game was also included exclusively with first print physical versions of Bayonetta 2.


Nintendo eShop (Wii U)

Bayonetta is a butt-kicking, havoc-wreaking witch, and she'll shoot, whip, slice, and burn angels as she uncovers the truth about her own past. Her weapons and moves are all stylishly over the top, but she can also dodge attacks to slow down time and inflict Torture Attacks on her enemies.

This is the prequel to the Bayonetta™ 2 game, and it's every bit as sassy, destructive, and epic as you'd expect.

Bayonetta is a fasionable and foxy unholy offspring of an Umbra With and a Lumen Sage, and she's lost her memory after being asleep at the bottom of a lake for 500 years.

Use Wicked Weaves to summon Infernal Deamons, dodge enemies' dangerous attacks to slow down time, and punish angels (they're so naughty!) with deadly devices.

You can even dress Bayonetta up in four Nintendo-themed costumes exclusive to Bayonetta on the Wii U: Princess Peach™, Daisy™, Link™, and Samus™.
