Last Monday morning, Platinum Game’s game designer Hideki Kamiya retweeted a tweet from Davey Art, saying that a Wii U Bundle with Bayonetta 2 “would be awesome”.
RT @davey_art: OMG! A Wii U Bundle with Bayonetta 2?? Would be awesome! If I can’t get a Wii U until that I will get it YES or YES :O

This only suggests that there’s nothing stopping PG and Nintendo from making it happen. After all, the game’s compelling features can definitely encourage its fans to buy a new console.
Real-Time Graphics for Bayonetta 2 on Wii U—Confirmed!
Prior to this, it was reported that Bayonetta 2 director Yusuke Hashimoto confirmed in a recent tweet that the game will feature real-time graphics. That is after claims about the one-second monster clip at the end of a developer video said that it was CGI. Because of this, gaming website Nintengen said that there will be no need for concern as to how Wii U graphics will hold up against the competition.
If that’s a glimpse of how built from the ground up games will look on Wii U, then there is no cause for any concern for how Wii U graphics are going to hold up against competition. Different shades of “pretty” in this coming generation will probably be the norm and whoever has the best art style is going to stand out more when they put these modern graphical effects to use.
Aside from real-time graphics, nothing much has been said regarding Bayonetta 2. Platinum Games and Nintendo also released a short video trailer that reflects the original game, although with few key differences. A crescent moon replaces the full moon, red tones are now blue, and the enemy can now rebuff Bayonetta’s attacks for a more formidable foe.
