Today Sega announced that PlatinumGames’ sexy action title Bayonetta will hit North American stores on January 5. Our European friends will have to wait until January 8 to get their hands on this stylish game.
Created by Hideki Kamiya, the man who brought us Devil May Cry, Bayonetta promises to bring similar gameplay. Kamiya said, “it’s been eight years since [the first Devil May Cry (DMC)], so of course I wouldn’t create a game that hadn’t progressed from those days! Of course, if there hadn’t have been DMC, there wouldn’t be Bayonetta, which has evolved from DMC.”
This announcement arrives in tandem with the Japanise release of the game. The Japanise gaming publication Famitsu gave Bayonetta “a perfect score of 40/40 for Xbox 360.” The PS3 version, which was ported by Sega, received a 38/40. I guess we will have to wait until January to see what we here at Gamer Limit think about it.
