Nintendo has announced that Bayonetta 2 has a firm release date. The title will make its previous "October 2014" release, arriving at the tail end of the month.

Bayonetta 2 for Wii U will come bundled with a copy of the original game. Nintendo and developer Platinum Games have also included Nintendo cosplay options for the witch. You can read our most recent preview for more information.

Our Take
Bayonetta 2 hitting its October mark is important for Nintendo and the Wii U this fall. With Smash Bros. for Wii U and Captain Toad still undated, knowing there is a first-party title locked and loaded after Hyrule Warriors is crucial.
