Value for money!

Bayonetta 2 may be taking its sweet time getting to market — we saw it at last year's E3, after all — but it would appear that the wait will be more than worth it.

Speaking to US Gamer, game director Yusuke Hashimoto has revealed that he is very proud indeed of the level of content that has been included in the sequel — and amazingly, all of it will be available from day one as there are no plans for DLC releases post launch.

Hashimoto believes that the game goes above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to providing the player with value. "I feel like there's enough content there for one and a half games," he said.

It was also revealed that the version of Bayonetta that ships with the physical edition of Bayonetta 2 has been outscored to Osaka-based Bee Tribe, with original creator Hideki Kamiya supervising every step of the way. As such, this could represent the definitive version of the game, and the reason for bringing it to Wii U is simple. "We thought it would be awesome to let fans play both on the same console," explains Hashimoto.

Bayonetta 2 launches in October.
