Bayonetta devs explain a few things

I don’t think I’ll ever fully understand how PlatinumGames came up with the insane idea of a hair-wielding witch as the main character of their forthcoming actioner. But, I walked away a little less dumbfounded after watching Bayonetta Revelations Chapter 1 above, their first in a series of developer diaries leading up to the game’s North American and European release in January.

The video features game director Hideki Kamiya and producer Yusuke Hashimoto discussing everything from character origins to enemy design and weapon customization. The game has already received a warm welcome from Japanese critics and will arrive in the US on January 5 and Europe on January 8.
