Wii U’s anticipated Bayonetta sequel to hit North America on 24th October

Nintendo has announced Bayonetta 2 will be available to buy in shops and download on the eSsop from October 24th in North America.

Platinum Games' much-loved witch makes a return in a WII U exclusive game that also comes with the original if you buy the retail version.

In the Wii U remake of the first Bayonetta game several costumes will be included that pay tribute to familiar Nintendo stars the likes of Link and Peach.

Bayonetta 2 is to feature Tag Climax, a two player co-op mode. Speaking about Tag Climax  Nintendo say:"In online quick matches, you can wager halos, the in-game currency that you earn by defeating enemies. You receive a large sum back if you can prove you're a better fighter than your partner. Halos can then be traded in a story mode shop to unlock new techniques, buy accessories and pick up alternate weapon variations."

There’s no word as to a European release date for Bayonetta 2 as yet, although it has previously been penciled-in for October.
