Platinum Games Now Have An Exclusivity Deal With Nintendo

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

Platinum Games; the famed developers of SEGA published games Bayonetta, MadWorld and Vanquish have now entered an exclusivity deal with Nintendo. This is why Bayonetta 2 is being released for the Wii-U with SEGA acting in an advisory role only.

Platinum Games have also revealed a 2nd Wii-U title called ‘The Wonderful 101’. You can watch the reveal trailer below:

Platinum Games have also spoke about how they regret not handling the PS3 version of Bayonetta themselves and how the negative feedback they received helped them learn to handle both 360 and PS3 versions of their games in-house.

Bayonetta 2 Announced as Wii-U Exclusive UPDATED

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

UPDATE
Bayonetta 2 is being published by SEGA in conjunction with Nintendo as the following screenshot proves: CLICK HERE

Thanks to Kevin Eva on Twitter.

ORIGINAL STORY
Bayonetta 2 is actually a real thing! Platinum Games’ mental action game is getting a sequel and it’s a Wii-U exclusive.

Yusuku Hashimoto who produced the original Bayonetta is now directing and the former Clover Studio CEO Atsushi Inaba is now acting as producer.

Bizarrely, the game isn’t being published by SEGA but by Nintendo themselves. So in a strange way this isn’t actually SEGA news!

A Quick Update Regarding the Status of the Website

Friday, September 7th, 2012

Hello everyone, Sonic Yoda here. A friend of mine suggested I keep you all in the know as to why the site has been quiet for such a long period of time and I thought that was quite a good idea!

So on the 28th of July I moved home and even though I’ve been in the new place for over a month me and my flat-mate are still sorting the last few things out. The main one is obviously the internet.

With any luck we should be live soon but there’s some strange fault with my line (apparently) so even though I should’ve gone live on Tuesday (4/9/12) I’m still having endless calls with my provider to get things sorted.

We have some cool content for you when we’re back though so don’t think we’ve been slacking. I have a feature video that includes all my favourite games from this year’s SAGE to still upload and then we’ll be doing another collaborative video with The Community Spotlight.

Once again, apologies for the long period of dead-time but hopefully we should be live and kicking again soon!
