Though no release date was given, with just a confirmation that it would be coming later this year, Bayonetta 2 got a new trailer in today’s Nintendo Direct.
It details the long standing relationship between the Umbra Witches and the Lumen Sages, clans of the overseer that watched over humanity, revealing some of the backstory to the game as Bayonetta and others head to the legendary mountain of Thimble-Venter (I’m fairly sure that’s what the guy said!) and the link between this world and hell.
There’s also some rather impressive world-altering events on show, a fight with a Lumen Sage and more little hints at the story of the game, while Satoru Iwata highlighted the new moves in the game, such as the Umbran Climax.
This game can’t come soon enough for Wii U fans.
