During Nintendo’s E3 Digital Event, it was revealed that Bayonetta 2 would be released exclusively on Wii U this October. As an added bonus, the original Bayonetta will be included on the game disc, giving gamers a chance to play through the first game for the first time on a Nintendo platform. However, buying a physical version of Bayonetta may be the only way to play the first game on Wii U. At the bottom of the official Bayonetta 2 website, there is the following disclaimer: “The retail version of Bayonetta 2 comes with the first Bayonetta game. Digital downloads of Bayonetta 2 from Nintendo eShop do not include the first game.”
Does this mean the Bayonetta 2 may not be available through the eShop at all, or that the first Bayonetta may only be available as a paid game separate from its sequel’s eShop release. Hopefully we’ll get more information on this development before the game is released this October.
