Bayonetta 2 to be a Wii U exclusive

Nintendo made a lot of big announcements during its Wii U event earlier today, but perhaps one of the biggest reveals was that Bayonetta 2 is coming to the console. Not only that, but Sega has opted to make it a Wii U exclusive, something that will likely come as a shock to fans.

Wii U reportedly launching on November 18

Even though the Wii U is supposed to launch in time for the holiday shopping season - which is quickly approaching, remember - we still don't have pricing or release date information on the console. It's widely assumed that Nintendo will spill these details during a press event in New York City on September 13, but we may have just found out the Wii U's release date a little ahead of time thanks to a slip up during a presentation from PDP at the GameStop managers' conference today. According to Kotaku, a representative from PDP, which makes gaming peripherals, said that the company's Wii U accessories will be available ahead of the console's November 18 launch.

His profile also said that he did multiplayer testing while working with the team, along with "ad hoc testing, and regression."
