The shadow remains cast!
While Wii U has ultimately become little more than a benchmark for Nintendo Switch sales to surpass, the experimental pit stop between Wii and Nintendo’s hybrid handheld still had a handful of must-have games. Bayonetta 2 sits proudly at the top of that list, and now the bold and brazen action-adventure breaks the...
Bayonetta 2 Guides
Switch up your combos
Bayonetta 2 is all about its combos. If you really want to master the combat system, you're going to have to learn a few of these, and fast. There are a few different combo types as well: ground, air, and unique combos that you can only pull off with a particular weapon. It's worth noting that you can perform all of the...
Keep no secrets

We also want to make life easier for you, so that's why we've rounded up all of the secret accessories, weapons, characters, and costumes in Bayonetta 2 to...
Mend a broken heart
Bayonetta 2 is not an easy game. Each hit you take brings you closer to death, so you'll probably want to give yourself a boost in HP. The way to do that is to collect Broken Witch Hearts. There are 40 of these in total, and much like in The Legend of Zelda, collecting four of these creates a Witch Heart that boosts your health...

We want to make it easier for you to unlock all of these things, so we're running a guide series on how...
Also known as Muspelheim
In your single minded determination to burn through all Bayonetta 2 has to offer, you might completely miss a bunch of Hidden Verses.

Echoes of the past
There are a bunch of Journal Echoes to collect in Bayonetta 2, and while they don't actually unlock anything, they're worth collecting if you care about story. Each of them fills in a few gaps in the plot to help enrich the experience, and breath a bit more life to the world around you. So if that sounds good to you, read on to...
It's a kind of magic

To make that easier for you, we've listed all of their locations below by chapter. <related tags="Bayonetta 2, Guides">Are you finding this...
She shoots, she scores
Your favourite Umbran Witch is back and with full force. Not only are both Bayonetta and the Wii U exclusive sequel out on Nintendo Switch this week, but a third entry is already in the works as a Switch exclusive no less. Given that basically no one bought a Wii U (sorry, Wii U!) chances are you've never played this...
In this admittedly quiet patch for the Nintendo Switch, it's up to Bayonetta and sequel Bayonetta 2 to fill the void. Given that the Wii U didn't sell gangbusters during its tenure, there's a big chance you have no idea what Bayonetta is.

About The Game
Bayonetta’s back and more powerful than ever.
Wield wild weapons and execute deadly moves—like the powerful Umbran Climax—to take out angels and demons in this breathtaking action game. You can even team up with friends in 2-player online or local wireless co-op fights (additional accessories required; sold separately.)
Bayonetta is a butt-kicking, havoc-wreaking witch who wields sweet weapons like pistols, whips, hammers, flamethrowers, and poison bows. But it’s not just about brawn—it’s also about style. Bayonetta is deadly but sleek, with moves like Witch Time that slows down time itself, and the all-new Umbran Climax—a special magic attack that summons Infernal Demons to devastate enemies. The Bayonetta™ 2 game also features an online and local wireless 2-player cooperative mode where players bet halos on their performance and work together to amplify their sass, cause destruction, and score some riches.
