A few years ago, coinciding with the game's initial launch on Wii U, an art book for Bayonetta 2 was released in Japan. An English translation of the book has since been in the works and western buyers should be able to get their hands on a copy very soon.
The book, titled 'The Eyes of Bayonetta 2', features all the fantastical designs and concept art you'd expect. There are five chapters in total, focusing on main characters, enemies, character and object imagery, stage scenery, and 'extras'. Here are some images and the official description:
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.
The Eyes of Bayonetta 2 collects all the fabulous artwork behind this celebrated video game sequel. Included are character designs, development sketches, weapon & environment designs and promotional artwork. It’s all topped off with character & enemy profiles, journal entries, and plenty of exclusive creator commentary.
The book is scheduled to launch on 20th November this year, and a pre-order link has already appeared on Amazon if you're keen.
