The company known for putting 'Dragon Ball Z,' 'One Piece' and 'Attack on Titan' on North American TVs will be bringing us an animated, full-length Bayonetta film.
Funimation has announced that it has acquired the rights to 'Bayonetta: Bloody Fate.' This animated movie was done by Gonzo, the studio that did the Emmy-nominated 'Afro Samurai Resurrection.' 'Bayonetta: Bloody Fate' is an animated film depicting the events of the first Bayonetta game, which debuted on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2009. Bayonetta 2 will be launching exclusively on Wii U this October.
Just as Bayonetta plays similarly to Devil May Cry, the art style of 'Bayonetta: Bloody Fate' looks akin to Dante's anime series that launched in 2007. This film was directed by Fuminori Kizaki, known for his work on the 'Afro Samurai' and 'X-Men' anime series. Expect 'Bayonetta: Bloody Fate' on Blu-ray and DVD later this year.
