KoopaTV's Bayonetta 2 Direct Live Reactions!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Comes out October 24. ...They only said this once.

Welcome to KoopaTV's Bayonetta 2 Nintendo Direct Live Reaction log. I'm your host, known in the land of AOL Instant Messenger as "Nintendork 13 13". Reacting with me today is RawkHawk2010! Let's get this show on the road after some pre-log goodness. Will PlatinumGames satisfy us?

 Nintendork 13 13 5:39 pm
    I mean
    ...neither of us have any expectations.
    There won't be a sudden Smash 4 trailer for Bayonetta.

 RawkHawk2010 5:39 pm
    k hurry up

 Nintendork 13 13 5:39 pm
    The game is rated E10+ after all.

 RawkHawk2010 5:39 pm
    let's not be so sure
    What about Snake?

 Nintendork 13 13 5:39 pm
    And she would've been in the E3 leak.
    Because it had other seductive women.
    ...Like... Krystal.
    And Candy Kong.

 RawkHawk2010 5:39 pm
    Oh yeah I guess.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:39 pm
    ...That's using "seductive" loosely.
    (It didn't have Dixie Kong! She's veerry seductive. <3 )

 Nintendork 13 13 5:53 pm

 RawkHawk2010 5:53 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 5:54 pm
    Dat age verification.
    ...It only goes down to 1920?
    That's not old enough!
    What do I do, Rawk?!
    ...Guess I'll say 1920.
    It doesn't really matter.

 RawkHawk2010 5:55 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 5:55 pm
    The age verification in the Nintendo 3DS eShop used to be like this.
    I linked above. <_<;

 Nintendork 13 13 5:55 pm
    Above my text.
    ...(Well it's all text.)
    ANYWAY, NOW THE NINTENDO NETWORK IDs ruined everything.
    And people struggle buying Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies.
    It said "An error occurred, please try again later."

It was clearly YouTube-based.

 RawkHawk2010 5:57 pm
    im in

 Nintendork 13 13 5:57 pm
    I'm not.
    Link me to the YT video directly.
    The error is on the video.

 RawkHawk2010 5:58 pm
    YT video?
    What YT video?

 Nintendork 13 13 5:58 pm
    It's embedded on a YT video.

 RawkHawk2010 5:58 pm it's not

 Nintendork 13 13 5:58 pm
    Y-Yes it is!

 RawkHawk2010 5:59 pm
    it's twitch

 Nintendork 13 13 5:59 pm
    Well link to Twitch then!

 Nintendork 13 13 5:59 pm

 RawkHawk2010 5:59 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 6:00 pm
    It said 31 minutes
    I'm on Twitch
    Sunday best.
    Yusuke Hashimoto and Akiki Kuroda
    from PlatinumGames
    (Kamiya is busy?)
    "Non-Stop Climax Action"
    "Tension Building" and "Tension Releasing"
    "Controls That Meld With Your Mind"

 RawkHawk2010 6:01 pm
    why is this video quality so bad

 Nintendork 13 13 6:02 pm
    It's, uh, bad?
    Bullet Arts

 RawkHawk2010 6:02 pm
    elephant roar

 Nintendork 13 13 6:02 pm
    She just stripped to create a demon thing
    "Her clothes are made of her hair"
    Is that why she has a butch haircut now?

 RawkHawk2010 6:03 pm
    Well her clothes were made of hair in Bayonetta 1 too.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:03 pm
    She had to cut her hair to make her clothes?

 RawkHawk2010 6:03 pm
    Oh hey it's Enzo.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:03 pm
    ...maybe she got a bigger wardrobe.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:03 pm
    Tell me what spoils Bayonetta 1.

 RawkHawk2010 6:04 pm
    It's Wonder Black.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:04 pm
    Loki kinda reminds me of a midget black Ghirahim.

 RawkHawk2010 6:04 pm
    Ali Rapp's a feminist.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:04 pm
    Oh hey it's Treehouse member Ali Rapp.
    And Demetrius Boggs.

 RawkHawk2010 6:05 pm
    Yeah pay her no mind.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:05 pm
    And Ryan Kelley.

 RawkHawk2010 6:05 pm
    Stacey Dildo.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:05 pm
    So Platinum develops and part of Nintendo's role as publisher is localizing.
    Ali Rapp is saying the combat has depth. Should I pay that no mind?

 RawkHawk2010 6:05 pm
    Demetrius Boggs reminds me of Anthony Higgs.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:06 pm
    I wonder how many localized Nintendo games have characters that are expies of Treehouse members.

 RawkHawk2010 6:06 pm
    Did they just cut Ryan Kelly off?

 Nintendork 13 13 6:06 pm
    That demon looks like Ridley.
    Thin and purple.

 RawkHawk2010 6:07 pm
    "Demons appear for the first time"
    Bayonetta summoned them in Bayonetta 1. >.>
    Like, for all her moves.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:08 pm
    Well she's punching, kicking, and shooting with combos.

 RawkHawk2010 6:08 pm
    see that leg was a demon

 Nintendork 13 13 6:08 pm
    Touch control.
    And automatic mode.

 RawkHawk2010 6:08 pm
    Sounds terrible.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:08 pm
    "Witch Time"
    Witches move in slow-motion time.
    (May be useful information to know for Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright)
    Dat torture.

 RawkHawk2010 6:10 pm
    This Direct is sensory overload.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:10 pm
    This reminds me of a better Hyrule Warriors.

 RawkHawk2010 6:11 pm
    Bayonetta 1 only had one good weapon.
    The samurai sword.
    Ryan Kelly.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:12 pm
    Treehouse Take is a reoccurring theme.

 RawkHawk2010 6:12 pm
    Admitting to playing competitors' games.

 RawkHawk2010 6:12 pm
    Unless he's just talking about the Wii U version.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:13 pm
    Ali Rapp is moving like she's possessed.

 RawkHawk2010 6:13 pm
    I still don't know how to do dodge offset.
    It's unintuitive.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:13 pm
    Not sure how I feel about Bayonetta's weapons being unpronouncable shit.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:15 pm
    "Game Modes"

 RawkHawk2010 6:15 pm
    holy shit the Direct is halfway done.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:15 pm
    Wonder Black is the one who selects the chapters in story mode.
    What about no items?
    ...oh there we go.
    Muspelheim = small hidden room
    AKA DKC2 bonus games.

 RawkHawk2010 6:16 pm
    Muspelheim is the same thing as Purgatorio from B1.

 RawkHawk2010 6:17 pm
    I like how they're trying to fool people into thinking these are all-new features by giving pre-existing features different names.
    Okay that Rodin animation was ripped straight out of B1.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:17 pm
    Bayonetta just got cut in half.
    And she didn't give a shit.

 RawkHawk2010 6:18 pm
    Here comes Dixie.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:18 pm
    Crossover Costumes
    Princess Peach.
    ...on a horse
    "The Koopa King's hands and feet may be summoned"
    "Hero of Hyrule"
    dat Morph Ball

 RawkHawk2010 6:18 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 6:18 pm
    "Star Mercenary"

 RawkHawk2010 6:18 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 6:19 pm
    Is there a LAND MASTEEER
    Princess Daisy
    Princess Daisy summons Bowser hands.
    "You don't really find angels in a game before."
    (Kid Icarus?)

Bayonetta in the Princess Peach costume in Bayonetta 2, pole-dancing and with panties.
Peach's private photos got leaked.

 RawkHawk2010 6:20 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 6:20 pm
    ...Kid Icarus Uprising.
    Chapter 18!

 RawkHawk2010 6:20 pm
    Boggs nees to step it up.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:21 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 6:21 pm
    We have like 10 minutes
    Are we getting another 7 minute trailer like W101 Direct?
    Online multiplayer.

 RawkHawk2010 6:21 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 6:21 pm
    Playable Rodin.

 RawkHawk2010 6:21 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 6:21 pm
    Tag Climax is the mode!
    Tag Climax → Halos → Story Mode → Tag Climax
    ...or something.
    Bet halos to increase difficulty level.
    (Also Uprising)
    I like how the Platinum people are making holding the GamePad look cool
    ...Two GamePads?

 RawkHawk2010 6:23 pm
    This is awkward.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:23 pm
    So this is the online co-op Hyrule Warriors doesn't have?

 RawkHawk2010 6:23 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 6:24 pm
    "Oh. I won!"
    "I... lost. I'm... a bit shocked."
    "Looks like Rodin is dead."
    "You can just leave the other player dead."
    "Oh now I'm dead."
    This is like that Ubisoft E3 2014 game.
    Where those people were rescuing that hostage.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:25 pm
    Available in North America October 24.

 RawkHawk2010 6:26 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 6:26 pm
    it's not Smash

 RawkHawk2010 6:27 pm
    oh fuck
    this is gonna be another 5 minute trailer that spoils the whole game like TW101's.
    Oh well.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:27 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 6:28 pm
    Wonder Black generates stairs.
    It's a creepy thing that needs sub-titles.

 RawkHawk2010 6:28 pm
    Oh shit it's that TW101 villain.
    The woman.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:29 pm

 RawkHawk2010 6:29 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 6:29 pm
    (Great Sacred Treasure?)
    No forgiveness.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:30 pm
    Wonder Black exploded!?
    "Supervision Hideki Kamiya"
    Thank you for watching.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:33 pm

 RawkHawk2010 6:33 pm
    Well uh.
    It looks great, but...
    ...kind of also feels "been there, done that."

 Nintendork 13 13 6:33 pm
    ...Yeah, I thought the W101 Direct was better.
    ...the trailer too.
    (It also had that eShop demo suspense)

 RawkHawk2010 6:34 pm
    So yeah, I might get to in a couple of years.
    to it*
    I mean hell, it's only a few weeks after Smash.

 RawkHawk2010 6:35 pm
    We surely won't have time for it, right?

 Nintendork 13 13 6:35 pm

 RawkHawk2010 6:35 pm
    Oh well, they tried.

Rawk considers Bayonetta's final boss to be the greatest of all time, while Ludwig only played the first two or so chapters of the game. What do you think? Comment below!

For the previous PlatinumGames Direct, see the Wonderful 101 Direct live reaction log.


  1. I forgot all about this Direct. I never played the first Bayonetta.

    1. Neither did I.
      (I also forgot about this Direct... even though I tweeted it a bit after it was announced.)

    2. Yeah.
      Kamek didn't either.
      He was just busy with... church stuff.
