Bayonetta 2 And The Wonderful 101 To Stay Wii U Exclusive
Posted by Andy Green
Platinum Games says the two games will be sticking around
There's been a lot of talk this week about Wii U exclusives that become multi-platform titles after a while. Team Ninja confirmed earlier in the week that Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge, once a Wii U exclusive, would soon be available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Then a few days later Ubisoft made the unpopular announcement that Rayman Legends would be delayed to a September launch due to the game now being released on multiple platforms.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said in a recent interview that he felt "big games" would be less likely to be exclusively tied to one console in the future, and that most exclusive content will most likely be found in the online stores, such as Nintendo's eShop, Sony's PSN Store and Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade.
However in a week of games jumping ship, there was one piece of good news as one developer has come forward to declare that two if its games would be staying Wii U exclusive. Video game designer at Platinum Games, Hideki Kamiya, has revealed that both Bayonetta 2 and The Wonderful 101 will be, and always will be, Wii U exclusives.
In a tweet, translated by NeoGAF, Kamiya said:
We're a development company...Nintendo gives us money, we make Bayonetta 2 and W101, and they sell it...So if Nintendo says 'We're putting Bayonetta 2 on PS360' it'll come out on those platforms...So ask Nintendo about it...
So it's not all been bad news regarding the Wii U exclusives this week, at least we know of two exclusives that will be staying put - unless Nintendo randomly decide to start publishing on other systems.
