Rumor: Bayonetta Returning With An "Animated Component"
Bayonetta was a critical and financial success and for some time, we've been expecting Sega and Platinum Games to announce a sequel.
Thankfully, according to an inside source speaking to TSSZ, that announcement could arrive this week. The Toyko Game Show runs for the next couple of days, so now would be the time to unveil Bayonetta 2. Or maybe it'll be a spin-off of some kind; we're not really sure.
Furthermore, the source claims Sega Sammy's animation studio Marza Animation Planet is currently cranking away on "an animated component to the franchise." We don't have any further details at this time, but such a hint is intriguing...and considering the leggy, sexy witch in question, that animation could be borderline manga. But we won't sell Bayonetta short; the original involved one of the deepest and most satisfying combat mechanics in action history.
As for a possible sequel, they had best produce a competent PlayStation 3 version this time. Platinum Games proved they could handle Sony's machine with Vanquish, so we imagine they won't disappoint PS3 fans with another Bayonetta.
