With only three months left until Bayonetta 2 releases on Nintendo’s Wii U, the developer is preparing for distribution both in retail and digital form. As already known, Bayonetta 2 will be shipping with the first game included on a secondary disc for free.
The digital edition will be a bit different because the two games will be split in two separate purchases on eShop. This won’t result in you paying more, as Nintendo assured gamers that the combined price of the digital games will match the retail one.
This could also mean that you can buy only Bayonetta 2 and save up some money by not purchasing the first game as well.
