Her name is Bayonetta and she will become the star of her own action extravaganza later this year. Many are saying it has the polish and depth to compete with top franchises like God of War and Devil May Cry, but that's a very tall order. There's no gameplay here, but it's a very pretty slideshow featuring the tall, sleek and attractive heroine who is clearly capable of doling out the pain. Can Platinum Games deliver the goods with this one? We'll need some seriously awesome gameplay and the competition is ridiculously tough, but we have high hopes! Don't let us down, Bayonetta. Be pretty, but be deadly, too.
