Bayonetta 2 to Arrive in October, Include First Game

Bayonetta 2

The original Bayonetta was a fantastic action game developed by Platinum Games and published by Sega in 2009. Sadly, their publication deal together ended, but we’re at least seeing more of this wonderful witch. On the Wii-U, at least. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Bayonetta 2 is going to arrive on the Wii-U in October 2014 and was recently revealed to include the original game (at least for the retail version). The game will also include some special Nintendo-inspired costumes like Link, Princess Peach, and Samus. The costumes may or may not force sound effects from their respective games to be used during Bayonetta (it’s not 100% clear in the trailer).

Bayonetta was one of my favorite games of the prior console generation and I’d highly recommend Wii-U owners to take a look at it’s sequel. At worst, you can play the first game, which I know is very, very solid.

Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Commercial, Initial Sales

yakuza-1-2-hd-front-coverIt’s Yakuza week, evidently. That’s fine by me. To honor this, we have a new poll up on the site to your right!

The commercial for Yakuza 1 & 2 HD evidently premiered right before SegaFans came back online. So I felt like sharing it with my readers. You can find it and an English translation of the dialogue after the jump.

Unfortunately, the game has not been selling very well. It has not made any of the sales charts I’ve run across online, which is very abysmal news. According to Dengeki’s sales charts, it sold less than 1,878 copies in it’s first week. How do we know this? Well, it didn’t enter the Top 50 at all and the worst chartered game sold that amount. Ouch.

What’s worse, it didn’t make an appearance in it’s second, full week at retail either.

If you had any hope in Yakuza 1 & 2 HD being released in a Western market, I think it’s safe to say there’s little chance of that now.

On to the commercial to cheer us up!
