Nope, we don't know what the eff's going on here either. Sure is dramatic though.
For the uninitiated, Bayonetta 2 is a balls-out crazy action title from Platinum Games. It follows the adventure of the titular (make that very titular) sexy sorceress, whose goal in life is to wreck the shit out of everything with her bizarre feet-mounted guns. And if that's not a cause worth getting behind, I don't know what the hell is.
If you're up on your gaming nerdly knowledge, you'll know that Platinum also brought us Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Its influence is plain to see in this one, with its fancy-ass score counters and general epilepsy-inducing light shows.
It's odd to think that this is a Wii U exclusive, bereft of cutesy cartooniness and rainbows shining from everyone's assholes as it is. But that's the deal, and it's great to see the console getting something a little heavier.
One of your witchy buddies being sucked into the gates of hell? We'd call that heavy. Take a look at this demented slice of violence in action above.
