A new trailer is also out while we wait for the Bayonetta sequel to launch on Wii U later this month

If you’re interested to check out the Wii U exclusive return of Bayonetta, a playable demo is now up for download from the European eShop

The demo’s announcement came at the end of a new trailer for Bayonetta 2 just out from Nintendo of Europe bearing the title 'The Witch is Back'.

According to Nintendo: "The demo kicks off the action atop a fighter jet over a city. Unleash the new Umbran Climax to pummel hordes of angelic enemies, or artfully dodge them to engage in Witch Time and experience the unique gameplay of Bayonetta 2."


Bayonetta 2 is already out in Japan and lands in Europe and North America on 24th October, a demo for the Americas is yet to be announced.

Early reviews of Bayonetta 2 are giving the game some impressive scores with Edge honouring the title with a rare perfect 10.

If you’ve not got a Wii U but want to check out Bayonetta 2 it may well be time to get one, as Platinum Games' Hideki Kamiya remains adamant the game will not be coming to any other platforms.
