Bayonetta 2 Trailer: Behold Galactic Bounty Hunter Bayonetta
A brief new trailer for Bayonetta 2 has emerged just in time for the game's launch this Friday. This new clip shows us how Bayonetta would fare as the space-faring bounty hunter Samus Aran. Based on this video, we'd think she'd be alright.
The clip is less than a minute long, but it tells us everything we need to know about Bayonetta's Samus powers. She dons the iconic armor (which fits as tightly as possible because it's Bayonetta and what else would you expect?), as well as the powerful arm cannon. She can perform the jumping Screw Attack a la Samus as well as drop into the Morph Ball for those tight squeezes. It's Bayonetta cosplaying as Samus... what else do you need?
We would have preferred a bit more from the Samus cosplay, perhaps some missiles or the ability to charge the arm cannon before firing it, but this is still a really cool costume. It's still weird to see Bayonetta in Nintendo clothes, considering how so out of Nintendo's normal portfolio she is, but we're not complaining one bit.
