Bayonetta 2: 10 Changes We Want Made

Though there haven’t been any official announcements on the matter, Platinum Games head Hideki Kamiya has been rather vocal about his desire to make a sequel to last year’s Bayonetta. Whether the game is a direct sequel or a spin off as has been implied by Kamiya, here are ten changes we’d like to see made for the continuing adventures of Bayonetta.

More varied soundtrack

Style was one thing where Bayonetta excelled. The soundtrack though, good as it was, could’ve done with a bit more variety. Whilst the incidental music was spot on, it was the use of actual songs that fell slightly below the mark. Don’t get me wrong, the remixed version of Fly me to the Moon was fantastic, but it was used a little too much for my liking. More remixed jazz standards is what we need in Bayonetta 2.

Co-op modes

Two boots would be better than one

Bayonetta was a hectic, and often confusing experience. Regardless of this, something about it just seems ripe for co-op gaming. Just imagine multi-player combos and the general bedlam that two Bayonettas could create. Imagine the old two player brawlers like Streets of Rage and Golden Axe, but in 3D and with the in your face aesthetics of Bayonetta. Don’t pretend that doesn’t sound good. Even if it’s just separate challenge modes, co-op would be a boon for Bayonetta 2.

Rectify camera issues

Where have those pesky enemies gotten too?

It’s a small niggle, but one that seems to plague many third person action games. It only seemed to happen when Bayonetta ran close to a wall, but the camera would try its best to follow her into the scenery, obscuring your view somewhat. In a game where enemies come as thick and as fast as in Bayonetta, having your view obstructed in this way, even for a second, was often the difference between success and failure. It’s a small tweak, but one we’d like to see all the same.

Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

  • That comparison video is nonsense. The PS3 version DOES NOT look like that. I don’t know where that idea came from, but mine hasn’t had a single hiccup, and that awful framerate was nowhere to be found.

    • its maybe because (im guessing) that you have the ps3 slim model. the slim model runs faster than the fat model of ps3. the slim model installs 4 minutes faster or more than the fat model and plays games better. (like you just claimed)

    • I have the fat ps3 and it works fine. The only difference that I could say was tedious is the loading times compared to the xbox. Overall, I’d say that it didn’t bother me as much.

      As for the list, the story to me was good. I liked reading up on Antonio’s notes when I had the time. It could also be the fact that Kamiya is doing a playthrough with commentary right now that it gives the game more depth and other cool stuff I’ve never realized 🙂 Co-op mode and more exploration is a must. It would be cool to see if Dante was an unlockable character too!

  • agree with the things you said, but
    the game doesn’t use QTE…they are button prompts

    Co-op, story, repetitive are a MUST!

  • Horrible list is almost everyway.

  • uhm

    I really despise how people act like every single game of this style needs to have a damn co op, or hell, EVERY game for that matter. When you add co op/multiplayer into a game where it was currently non existing. The GAME becomes secondary to the durr durr play wit sombody else multeepwaayer aspect. Therefore not Bayonetta 2, but oh lets get more co op junkies who would play once and forget it. As for the rest of the list, you even say the only solid criticism is repetetivenes…so its like what even was the point of this list? going out of your way to try and complain about the game.
