The lights are on
In the latest blog on Platinum Games' website, the developer shares some concept art for Bayonetta, and explains why she decided to get a haircut.
You will also find some concept art for Bayonetta's weapons and face, as well as similar images for Jeanne, seen above.
The designs come from freelance artist Mari Shimazaki, who wrote, "After talking with Hashimoto and Kamiya, the three of us came to the conclusion Bayonetta’s not the kind of girl who’d show up with the same hairstyle for her sequel. A girl can be known to change her hairstyle depending on her mood, so I guess Bayonetta was in the mood for something short. Still, knowing her, there’s no telling when she’ll decide to change it again."
Shimazak also explains that Bayonetta's theme this time around is "solid" which is why her design for the sequel is built with more straight lines, where in the previous game, Bayonetta's design used more curved lines.
You can head to here to see all the designs, as well more details on Jeanne. For more on Bayonetta 2, head here to learn how you will be able to play the original game on Wii U with Nintendo-themed costumes, and here for our hands-on with the game at E3.

It all looks pretty good. I can't wait for this to release. I might finally finish Wonerfull 101 while I wait.
Hurrah for explanation s? So now whens the release date?
I love the new hairstyle.
Scratching days off te calendar.
"I didn’t intend to accentuate this part of her in my concept art, but Kamiya said Jeanne looks flatter than ever. He was happy about it too, so that’s fine I guess." Well that made me laugh.
I think her hair looks pretty cool.
Now we just need a SE release that includes the concept art and OST...
Yet another pixie cut...celebrities! What can you do?
