Nintendo and Platinum Games aren’t quite ready to fully reveal Bayonetta’s Amiibo, but they have offered a tease and some details about the new figure.
Platinum shared the teaser image below along with a message from Bayonetta 2 director Yusuke Hashimoto on its website today. “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,” he said. “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.
“Back when we were making Bayonetta 2, there wasn’t any talk of bringing the game to life in three dimensions like this. In fact, this is the first time a character from a game I’ve directed has been made into a figure. I’m shocked by how well Bayonetta’s essence has been shrunk down to fit in the palm of your hand! What an amazing era…”
It’s been almost a year since the announcement that Bayonetta would be turned into an Amiibo and a playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS. She was released as the final DLC character earlier this year, but we’ve still been waiting on that Amiibo.
Bayonetta’s most recent game was Bayonetta 2, which was first released in a bundle with the original game on Wii U in 2014. Earlier this year, it was released as a standalone game, also for Wii U. Platinum has ideas for a third game, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
