Platinum Games is really trying to step up their game for the upcoming sequel to their best selling title. This time around they announced that Bayonetta 2 will have a 2-player mode when it comes out next year.
They said that even though Bayonetta 2 is built around a single-player experience, that they included a 2-player mode with new combat features for mid-air battles. Details aren’t all there yet.
Bayonetta 2 will also feature touch controls via the Wii U gamepad and stylus. Nintendo says this is designed for newcomers to the franchise and is obviously optional. The touch controls are actually playable at the E3 show floor, so expect us to have hands-on previews shortly!
How do the touch controls work?
- Move – tap to where you want to go
- Jump – swipe up
- Attack – tap an enemy and repeat taps start combos
- Evade – swipe backwards
- Witch time – do an evade swipe right before an enemy attacks
- Umbra Climax – a command shows up on screen to tap
