Bayonetta: Bloody Fate

Last year we mentioned that everyone's favourite dark yet oh-so-flashy witch Bayonetta was receiving her own anime feature film in Japan, titled Bayonetta: Bloody Fate. Now, thanks to production company FUNimation, the film will be materializing in the United States and Canada as well.

FUNimation has announced today its acquisition of the distribution rights for Bloody Fate in both North American countries. A small preview of the English dub is scheduled to be shown at the Los Angeles Anime Expo on 5th July and will include a Q&A session with director Fuminori Kizaki.

Bayonetta: Bloody Fate was made by Studio Gonzo. It, along with Kizaki, was also responsible for Afro Samurai and its sequel, Afro Samurai: Resurrection. Details on a US/Canadian release date for Bloody Fate have not yet been provided.

Bayonetta fans have a lot to look forward to this year, the movie adding to what was already the double feature of both Bayonetta games releasing for the Wii U this October. Do you plan on catching this film whenever it phases into your world?
