Diminished Hope If You Were Looking for Multiplatform Release
We’d like to clarify something reported earlier, though you can’t really blame us for seeing a Sega logo on the trailer Nintendo revealed this morning for Bayonetta 2. It appears Nintendo is indeed the sole publisher of the project; that means it will almost certainly remain a Wii U exclusive. With that, any hope one had of seeing the sequel on an XBOX 360 or Playstation 3 is gone.
To be sure, Sega did address the confusion in a Tweet today:
@faseehdeen Bayonetta 2 is developed by Platinum Games and published by Nintendo. SEGA is working with both as an advisor to the project.

Further, Sega did not have any more details available on Bayonetta 2 when prompted, and it doesn’t look like the company is directly involved in any way. It appears that, aside from the advisory role, this is a Nintendo project through and through. We regret the confusion.
