As winning combinations go, that one’s a whole lot more win-y than most.

Bayonetta 2 is coming at us courtesy of the loons at Platinum Games, last seen crafting the balls-out actiontacular crazy spree that is Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Raiden’s badass ninja influence is plain to see here: complex-looking combo counter as high as the Chrysler building? Check. Awesomely theatrical moves –complete with their own brief ‘check this shit out’ cutscene– when a simple stabbing to the manparts would suffice? Double check.

Still, the most intriguing factor here is that this remains a Wii U exclusive. As we know, the family-friendly funsters at Nintendo aren’t really ones for sex appeal (NOA boss-dude Reggie not included. That guy’s all man). They probably shat a little when they saw Bayonetta emerge crotch-first from the wreckage and make innuendos about ‘touching.’ Sometimes, though, impeccably-dressed Asian businessmen have to take one for the team; the result of which you can see above.
