Bayonetta 2 has now arrived on Wii U, available on the eShop and, of course, in stores. Yet a quick look on social networks suggests that plenty are struggling to get hold of the game in high street stores, with various retailers apparently selling out of stock. What's going on?

It can mean multiple things. There's clearly demand, which is terrific, though some are suggesting that there may not be enough copies getting supplied to retailers; there are certainly a number of gamers saying they had to travel to multiple stores to find a copy. A lot of these posts seem to be in North America, though here in Europe the dual-disc version that includes Bayonetta — which is a separate edition in the region — is also proving elusive for some.

In order to gauge what's happening for those of you here on Nintendo Life, below are a couple of polls to look into which version of Bayonetta 2 you're buying (eShop or physical retail) and whether you've found stock hard to come by.
