Nintendo have unveiled the Bayonetta 2: First Print Edition, which is exclusive to Europe, in their latest Nintendo Direct. At launch, on October 24th, European fans will have three retail editions to choose from: the newly announced First Print Edition – which houses disc versions of Bayonetta 2 and the Wii U Bayonetta remake, plus The Art of Bayonetta 2 art book, in special 3D embossed leather-effect packaging that faithfully recreates The Hierarchy of Laguna, the book of angels that documents the angelic foes Bayonetta meets on her adventures, making this a striking edition for devotees of the Umbra Witch.

Also available is a Special Edition which bundles disc versions of Bayonetta 2 and Bayonetta together, or the solus edition which includes just Bayonetta 2. In addition, digital versions of Bayonetta 2 and Bayonetta can be purchased on Nintendo eShop at launch, and those who buy one title can obtain the other one at a discounted price.

Nintendo also announced for the first time that the cosplay costumes available in the Wii U remake of Bayonetta will also be available in Bayonetta 2. These include Bayonetta’s wild takes on Princess Peach, Link and Samus, and – exclusive to Bayonetta 2 – a surprise star mercenary is also featured in her wardrobe in an outfit reminiscent of Fox McCloud, the hero of the Star Fox games. Furthermore, the Nintendo Direct revealed Rodin as a playable character in Tag Climax, Bayonetta 2’s new online co-op mode, and showed off the first footage of multiplayer action.

Bayonetta 2 comes exclusively to Wii U on October 24th .
