Nintendo-Themed Costumes Confirmed For Bayonetta 2, Including Star Fox

During a special Nintendo Direct today, Platinum Games confirmed that Bayonetta 2 will also include the Nintendo-themed costumes originally announced for Bayonetta 1 on Wii U. The developer also revealed a new Bayonetta 2-only costume based on the character Fox McCloud.

The new look, pictured above, joins Samus, Link, and Princess Peach as special costumes in Bayonetta 2. Those other three are also available on the Wii U version of Bayonetta, but McCloud is only in the sequel.

Bayonetta 2 is a Wii U exclusive, and slated to release on October 24 for $ 60. It comes bundled with a Wii U version of Bayonetta, previously only available on PS3 and 360. The bundle is available at retail and also for players buying the games digitally on the eShop.

 

Our Take
I'm personally more excited about getting to play more Bayonetta than I am about her gimmicky costumes, but I can't deny that this is a smart way for Platinum and Nintendo to team up to hype the game. With it only releasing on one platform, the audience is more limited, so Bayonetta 2 needs all the support it can get.

Sega Says Phantasy Star Online 2 Still Planned For Western Release

According to a Sega representative, the long-delayed MMO will eventually be released in Western markets.

Many had given up on the game, given that it was released in Japan back in 2012, and missed a planned U.S. release date in 2013. However, when asked about a Western release for the game on Twitter, the official Sega account answered: "PSO2 is still delayed. SEGA is currently working on bringing PSO2 to the West and will update as soon as we know more."

So, it's at least a sign of hope for American PSO fans.

Our Take
This is an encouraging sign, but the American version of Phantasy Star Online 2 has officially verged into "we'll believe it when we see it" territory.
