Bayonetta 2 'like fighting the last boss from the very beginning'

Bayonetta 2 developer Platinum Games isn't ready to show any actual footage from their upcoming Wii U exclusive title, but they did open up the studio for a behind the scenes look at the game in development for today's Nintendo Direct.

In the video, you can see some elaborate set pieces, monster animations and the crafting of Bayonetta's classic leather-looking hair outfit and moves. Different developers also discuss what they are trying to do with the game. "The scale of the game is completely different this time, so it feels like you are fighting the last boss from the beginning," one said.

The video concludes with a shot of Bayonetta's incredibly slender, but deadly legs struting across the screen with the tease "Do you want to touch me?" When the first in-game footage of the game is available, it is likely many fans of the original (who have a Wii U) will be shouting "Yes!"
