Bayonetta 2 hits UK on October 24th, First Print Edition announced


If you didn't say up for last night's Nintendo Direct (I certainly didn't!), you might not have heard that Bayonetta 2 finally has secured a UK and Europe release date.

October 24th 2014!


Nintendo also announced the First Print Edition, a European exclusive edition, that includes disc versions of Bayonetta 2, the Wii U remake of Bayonetta and an art book, all housed in a swanky 3D embossed leather effect packaging. Neat!

The Direct presentation also featured a brand new playable character, Rodin, which players will be able to use in Bayonetta 2's new co-op mode, Tag Remix.

Check out the new trailer below:

Ah right they like to confuse things dont they. Will wait to see prices before choosing which version.

Amazon have it listed with Bayonetta for £31.85 at the moment, hoping they're going to honour existing orders on that ;)

well the first print edition on game is £60 and the double pack is £45 on games website £38 on here so £15 for an art book seems ridiculous.

Yeah, first print edition is a little lacking, a statue would have been better.

Wish shopto had the first print edition, i may have to actually re-activate my GAME account and cancel my shopto pre-order. I hate using GAME, they seem to be getting a lot of exclusive stuff now though...

Yeah doubt ill bother with the first print edition if it stays at that price. Also on Price have nintendo reduced there prices of Wii U games or is it a coincidence Hyrule Warriors and Bayonetta are both priced around £30.

Ordered the First Print edition (I don't think Ninty know what First Print means) Hoping that the Ninty UK store also put it up so I can order there

Could just be placeholder prices getting replaced with real prices as the launch date approaches Bindania, strictly speaking neither of those are Nintendo games either.

I have a feeling Amazon have cocked up with their £31.85 version having the original Bayonetta included. It does clearly state on Amazons description just above "Key Features" that the original Bayonetta comes with EVERY retail packaged verison sold so conflicted reports on different versions here ??? Maybe they have'nt updated their description ? If they have then they'll be many returned orders and pissed off customers.

Amazon are usually good at honouring cock-ups. Mind you they honour Amazon cock-ups and this doesn't fall into that category

Yeah it seems GAME have the first print edition ....preordered as it's only a 15300 print run so I hope it will increase in price. I've also preordered limited from amazon and shopto to cover all bases. Seems Nintendo went back on original offer of booths games as standard

Well the First Print edition does seem to prove video gamers can be gouged for money fairly easily.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
It's Nintendo merchandise and it is actually limited. It was a no brainer for me. Would rather get it direct from Nintendo so there isn't a middle man but I hav my Pre-order just in case

Fair enough to spend an extra £20 more then I have to would need more then an Art book. Especially when a lot of the NIS games come with free art books when you preorder.
DynamiteWhyte's avatar

For an extra £20 I'd expect DLC and something better than an art book considering so many pre-order games have came with an art book. A nice statue or something different would be nice.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

It would have been better value if the Special edition came with a code for Bayonetta 1 and only the First Print came with a hard copy
NathanW18's avatar

Shitty GAME exclusives. Do people really still buy there often? Still £60 is a bit pricey. I think I'll just stick with my Amazon order. Also, is Bayonetta 1 a downloadable copy? Pretty annoying if so. I only have the 8GB Wii U.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

I am assuming the special edition has a hard copy, but it wasn't shown so I don't know

Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
Yeah but take out the fact that it is a game and it makes sense to buy something people want for cheap and sell it more expensive later on. The thought has crossed my mind for the Destiny ghost edition which is selling for over £200 on ebay now. I probably wont though.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
IMO if you are intentionally scalping then you are a massive dick. You are buying a copy that someone else would have wanted. Fair enough, it isn't just the scalper at fault, it is also the person who buys it sixe they encourage them to do it again

It's all good. I just find the topic really annoying from a collector point of view. I'm hearing conflicting info and the whole Amazon Bayonetta thing. Some people are being told that they can't/will not honour it and some are being told that Amazon are only stocking the Special Edition

I would ask them but I think I have used up all my good luck for a while when I was fixing my PC Parts order with them just now. Amazon have great customer service

It's amazing this is no.1 game for pre-order on this site in multiformat, first print edition in game is already sold out, this game is becoming great success for third party game, this has proven non Nintendo games can sell on Wiiu and if this carries on a lot of developers will come on developing on this console, looks like bayonetta 2 will make great impact and become third system seller.

Bayonetta 2 is more of a 2nd party game than a 3rd party game

if they want it so much Nox they will be willing to pay the premium price and maybe be a little faster on the pre-order button in future.

Amazon have told me this evening that they are unsure if the original "bayonetta" will be included now. They are confirming with their suppliers and it's best to contact them again closer to release date so everyone is being told different things. The fact that they have removed the inclusion in their product description indicates to me that this is indeed the standard single game version and you will not receive the original game. It's a right mess. Time will tell I guess.

So looking forward to this, shame game got first print edition but its fine at least i have my double pack instead.
Anonymous user's avatar

I know its an old news feed but if you ordered Bayonetta 2 off Amazon for £31.85 before they updated their item description (WHEN it said Bayonetta 1 was included) you will still get the double pack they have just contacted me to confirm this. If you havent ordered it yet then buy it off Shopto as its the best price now :-)

Keep it safe Gloria. My exact e-mail was:- Hello Philip, I have received an update from our team regarding your order for the item Bayonetta 2 (Nintendo Wii U) and glad to inform you that it does include Bayonetta 1. Should you need further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us. Have a lovely day ahead of you. Take care. Bargain at £31.85 - never did get round to play the first on the Ps3 so looking forward to them both.

PHILIP @ While that is true the Solus edition of Bayonetta 2 doesn't have a physical case for the first game, so it's a little lacking and paying a couple more pounds (£9.86) won't hurt. On Base.com Bayonetta 2 Solus is £29.99 but I decided to go for the Bayonetta 2: Special Edition on ShopTo (£39.85).

The Solus edition of Bayonetta 2 doesn't come with a code for Bayonetta 1
