bayonettaAngels, Bazookas And Giant Gods, It Can Only Mean One Thing

GamesCom is well under way and another trade show means another opportunity for Sega to drop jaws with Platinum Games evolution of the action genre. The lead characters looks and celebrity status may be debatable but everyone seems to agree the game has a lot of potential. They also agree it’s as mad as a box of frogs. Bayonetta kills evil Angels, special moves remove bits of her magical suit and bosses comprise of godlike creatures the size of a block of flats.

Don’t believe me? Take a look at the pictures provided by Sega below. While you’re at it Sega have also had time to interview Yusuke Hashimoto, Platinum Games Producer. Hashimoto gives a brief overview of the game and how while it’s meant for the hardcore it does have a mode for those new to gaming. Dubbed ‘Easy Automatic’ the mode can be turned on and off at will for when you get really stuck. Just be patient as Hashimoto has a lot to say which means a lot of work for his translator.
