The official Bayonetta: Bloody Fate website has posted a 90-second trailer for Bayonetta‘s theatrical outing. The film was announced last month at Tokyo Game Show 2013 and is due in theaters later next month. The trailer features the song “Night, I Stand” by mai, as well as some familiar tracks from the original game.
Bayonetta: Bloody Fate is produced by SEGA and Gonzo and is directed by Fuminori Kizaki of Afro Samurai and X-Men anime fame. The film’s spoken language is Japanese; it will feature the voices of Atsuko Tanaka, Mie Sonozaki, Daisuke Namikawa, Miyuki Sawashiro, Tesshô Genda, Wataru Takagi, and Norio Wakamoto.
From watching the trailer, it’s easy to see the film’s attractive features. The stylized artwork of the original game translates into a sleek-looking anime. Those who have played Bayonetta will immediately recognize key moments from the game, although character placement appears entirely different. While it’s unclear whether the film will take a grittier and more serious direction than the game, we can definitely anticipate entertaining action scenes from it.
In Japan, the film will play in 10 select theaters. It will begin its two-week run November 23rd, 2013.
