Bayonetta 2 is coming to the Wii U as an exclusive title. A horde of overly-sensitive gamers felt offended as a result of this, but Atsushi Inaba of Platinum Games has made it clear that Bayonetta 2 would not exist without Nintendo. This is what he said:
Would Bayonetta 2 not exist without Nintendo? The answer is yes. We are not viewing this as a change of platform. We were looking for a partner to create Bayonetta 2 and Nintendo was a strong, cooperative partner that was willing to create and grow Bayonetta 2 together [with us]. As a result the platform became the Wii U.
People will always find something to complain about, of course. I’m sure there’ll be something in the near future that gets a whole bunch of peoples panties in a twist.
