Bayonetta 2 E3 trailer, screenshots

First details on Platinum's upcoming sequel.

Nintendo and PlatinumGames have released the debut gameplay trailer and first screenshots of Bayonetta 2 at E3.

In the upcoming sequel, Bayonetta will have new weapons and abilities, such as her new Umbra Climax, which can summon demonic monsters in echange for magic points.

The game will offer Normal and Touch gameplay styles. Normal mode represents the classic control scheme of the previous game. Touch mode, on the other hand, offers a “more convenient” play style for those unfamiliar with action games or are looking for a new spin on action. Players will use the GamePad controller’s touch screen to “easily manipulate” Bayonetta as she moves, attacks, and evades enemies.

Bayonetta’s longtime friend and fellow witch Jeanne will also appear as a non-playable character to assist Bayonetta in combination attacks.

Beyonetta 2 will also allow off-TV GamePad play.
