News for Bayonetta 2 has been spotty over the last year, but Nintendo Directs have consistently brought new information about Platinum’s upcoming action game. Today’s Nintendo Direct featured an all new trailer that explained a little of the game’s story, showed off some characters (new and old), and had plenty of crazy gameplay mixed in as well.

It seems that the story this time around revolves around a location called Mount Fimbulvintr, which draws its name from a Nordic term that means “the events before Ragnarok (the end of the world).” This mountain is said to be a link between Inferno and Paradiso, sort of the heaven and hell of the Bayonetta universe. They are going there in search of the entrance to Inferno. Some familiar characters pop up briefly through the trailer, including Luka, Rodin, and Enzo. There is also a new character (I think he was shown briefly in a previous trailer), a boy wearing baggy clothes and a lot of golden jewelry. He isn’t given a name, but based on the trailer, it looks like we may play as him at some point in the game.

After the trailer Iwata spoke briefly about the game, introducing a new ability called the Umbran Climax. This ability allows you to unleash a very powerful combo attack by releasing all of your magic power at once.

Bayonetta 2 is set for release later this year, and personally I can’t wait. Are you looking forward to Bayonetta 2? Let us know in the comments below!
