Bayonetta 2 to Receive Budget Re-Release header

Just as prices for the original release started to peak, news arrives that Bayonetta 2 will receive a budget re-release.

Recently, gamers have been frustrated at the rising price for even secondhand copies of Bayonetta 2 for the Wii U. Prices during this holiday season exceeded the original retail price. Some sellers were asking as much as $80 or $90 for used copies of the 2014 game.

Now comes word of relief from Nintendo. Finally.

The new run of the game will not feature the original as a pack-in, unfortunately. So hardcore collectors and Bayonetta fans seeking a Wii U port of the original game will still have to obtain the original double pack release.

The re-release will arrive on February 19th, 2016 in North America and be on sale for $29.99.

Honestly, I have to wonder if it isn’t past time for the series to hit the PC and experience a second life.
