Bayonetta is being turned into an anime called Bayonetta: Bloody Fate

Sega’s popular Bayonetta franchise is being turned into an anime movie called Bayonetta: Bloody Fate. This announcement comes yesterday after Sega announced the official purchase of Index Corporation, bringing Atlus under the Sega umbrella. This has been rumored to be one of Sega’s projects for some time now, but it is now officially confirmed with the above trailer. The movie will be released on November 23rd.

There is no official release date for Bayonetta 2 yet, which is a Wii U exclusive. Platinum Games developer Hideki Kamiya has stated that he would like to see the original Bayonetta game released on Wii U as well, but for now we can expect Bayonetta 2 on Wii U some time in 2014.
