When Bayonetta 2 first launched in 2014 it included a disc copy of the first Bayonetta. Such copies of Bayonetta 2 are becoming harder and harder to find.

However, there is good news for anyone looking for the game after Bayonetta’s inclusion on the Smash Bros. roster. Earlier today, Nintendo of America announced via their Twitter account that a standalone version of Bayonetta 2 would be available to purchase February 19, 2015.

As a reissue of a prior game, the suggested retail price is $29.99 as opposed to the $59.99 or $49.99 most new WiiU games cost. A digital version of the original Bayonetta can be purchased from the Nintendo eShop for $29.99.

For those who are undecided about whether to pick up this game, an oprainfall review of Bayonetta 2 is available here.
