BAYONETTA 2 COMES INTO FOCUS IN A NEW NINTENDO DIRECT

Bayonetta 2 box art
Nintendo Direct - Bayonetta 2

Sept. 4, 2014 - A new Nintendo Direct video detailed some of the cool new aspects of the Bayonetta 2 game, which launches exclusively for Wii U on Oct. 24. For the first time, Nintendo announced that the cosplay options available in the original Bayonetta game will also be available in Bayonetta 2. These include Bayonetta’s wild takes on Princess Peach, Daisy, Link and Samus. But a surprise interstellar mercenary is also given the costume treatment: an outfit reminiscent of Fox McCloud, hero of the Star Fox games, was also revealed for Bayonetta 2 during this Nintendo Direct.

The Nintendo Direct also revealed Rodin as a playable character in Bayonetta 2’s multiplayer Tag Climax mode and showed off the first footage of multiplayer action.

Nintendo had previously announced that the Wii U version of the original Bayonetta game would be included with the packaged version of Bayonetta 2, available in stores at a suggested retail price of $59.99. But for the first time, Nintendo detailed the pricing plan for the downloadable versions of the games for players who opt to purchase both digitally. When buying both games separately in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U, a special discount will be applied during the purchase process, making the total for both games just $59.98.

The Nintendo Direct also provided more details about previously announced features of Bayonetta 2, including characters, storyline, combat mechanics, weapons, magic, Bayonetta’s trademark Torture Attacks and the new Umbran Climax. Viewers will learn about Muspelheim challenge rooms, how the ranking system works and how to spend their hard-fought Halos to buy items and skills or modify weapons. It’s a must-watch for anyone who wants to be ready to take down opponents in style.

SUPER SMASH BROS., AMIIBO, POKÉMON AND NEW HARDWARE BUNDLES STAR IN NINTENDO'S HOLIDAY LINEUP

Pre-Orders for First 12 amiibo Figures Kick off Nintendo’s Holiday Season

Amiibo Peomo

REDMOND, Wash., Aug. 29, 2014 – Nintendo has prepared a massive lineup of new games and products for the 2014 holiday season. The lineup includes new entries from some of the biggest franchises in gaming, new hardware bundles for Wii U and Nintendo 2DS, and new amiibo interactive figures featuring some of the most iconic characters in the world of video games.

The holiday shopping season begins today for Nintendo fans, as the first 12 amiibo interactive figures become available for pre-order at a suggested retail price of just $12.99 each. The first dozen characters available for pre-order at select retailers are Mario, Peach, Link, Samus, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Pikachu, Kirby, Fox, Marth, Villager and Wii Fit Trainer, with more on the way in the future.

“Nintendo’s holiday offerings demonstrate a combination of fun franchises and great value,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “With Wii U and Nintendo 2DS hardware bundles, classic names like Super Smash Bros., Bayonetta and Pokémon, new IP like Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, and amiibo, everyone will find something to love about Nintendo this holiday season. Whether people are shopping for themselves or they’re prepping their gift lists, Nintendo has them covered.”

Here’s a taste of what Nintendo has on tap for the 2014 holiday season:

  • Major Franchises: Nintendo has four games from two of the most well-known franchises launching this year:

    • Super Smash Bros.: The Wii U game and the first portable game in the series are getting ready for their debuts. Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS launches Oct. 3, with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U following during the holiday season. Fans who register both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of the games with Club Nintendo will receive the Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS & Wii U: Premium Sound Selection, a soundtrack CD packed with music taken from and inspired by the games. More details about this offer will be provided in the future. Also, in a separate announcement this morning, Nintendo revealed that Shulk from the Xenoblade Chronicles franchise would be a playable character in both games.
    • Pokémon: Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire for Nintendo 3DS will hit stores and the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS on Nov. 21. Trainers will catch, battle and trade Pokémon as they immerse themselves into a grand tale that draws ever closer to the heart of the secrets behind Mega Evolution and the power of Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre. With beautifully rendered graphics and new challenges to overcome, these games are a true evolution in the Pokémon series.
  • Interactive amiibo Figures: Nintendo’s foray into the toys-to-life category starts today, with the first 12 amiibo figures available to pre-order from select retailers.
