I thought I was having a “senior moment,” even though I’m only 21, the other day. I had Comedy Central on as white noise in the background while I was playing League of Legends
and I could have sworn I heard someone say something about Bayonetta 2
. I figured I was crazy and had Nintendo on the mind, and shrugged it off. Now, I’m not so sure, because it turns out Bayonetta 2
commercials are actually airing on TV.
Nintendo uploaded the ad to its YouTube account on October 10, 2014, so you can see it without having to hope it shows up on your TV. Don’t worry about watching it at school or work. Even though people are always talking about the Bayonetta series’ fanservice, this one is safe for work.
Now, I’m pretty sure this appeared on Comedy Central. However, a little Googling showed me that other people have seen it appear during Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim programming block. It seems like a cable TV exclusive, so don’t feel bad if you don’t see Bayonetta 2 pop up during your favorite show. Nintendo likely paid for spots where it knew there’d be a sure audience.
is coming to the Wii U on October 24, 2014
, and includes a copy of the originalBayonetta
. If you’re unsure about it, the demo is up in the Wii U eShop right now. Watch the commercial, then give it a try.
