Bayonetta 2 Was Originally A Multi-Platform Game

It was because of Nintendo's funding that Bayonetta's sequels exist

When Bayonetta 2 was first announced many were less excited more livid at the fact it was a Wii U exclusive. Founder of PlatinumGames, Hideki Kamiya, went on Twitter to give a rough timeline about Bayonetta's survival and greenlit sequels.

Kamiya gave a short explanation of how the relationship between developer and publisher works. Explaining that SEGA provided funding for the original game but the sequel's funding was halted. It was because of Nintendo funding the project, with SEGA's okay, that Bayonetta 2 happened.

Bayonetta 3 was decided to be developed using Nintendo's funding again, and according to Kamiya "Without their help, we would not have been able to kick off this project." He explained it took a while for the project to be greenlit, most likely due to the Wii U not selling well.

However, fans of the series will have their chance to play both Bayonetta 1 and 2 when it releases again this week on the Nintendo Switch.
