A demo for the forthcoming Wii U action title Bayonetta 2 is now available on the European Wii U eShop.

The game doesn't launch until October 24th in North America and Europe, but Nintendo is clearly aiming to build up hype prior to release. A Wii U-exclusive sequel to the 2010 original — which is also coming to Nintendo's machine — it's one of the big releases of this year.

As you can see from the photo below, the demo is accessible from the game's page on the eShop itself.

Let us know if you've downloaded and what you think of the game so far.
