PlatinumGames has shared the first glimpse of the much anticipated Bayonetta amiibo figure, precisely designed after the Umbra witch herself.
Two years ago today, on September 20, 2014, Bayonetta 2 debuted in Japan as a Wii U exclusive title published by Nintendo. Since then, the game’s iconic tongue-lashing character, Bayonetta, has seen her fair share of time in the spotlight — from a secret character in The Wonderful 101 to a DLC fighter in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
But today, PlatinumGames director Yusuke Hashimoto shared with fans the first glimpse of the Bayonetta amiibo figure, pictured below.
“I’m afraid that this little taste is all I can give you right now, since we’re still working hard to get her just right,” Hashimoto said in a blog post. “But I assure you that we’re going to capture everything you know and love about Bayonetta — every detail down to the exact sizes of her glasses and eyes — and bring you an amiibo that’ll meet your every expectation.”
However, there’s still no official release date for the palm-sized witch. Speaking of which, there’s still no word on the release dates for the Cloud and Corrin amiibo figures. But they’re still coming to Super Smash Bros. — Nintendo promised.
