Within the development team of Platinum Games exists a bastion of creativity and vision that is tough to wrap one's head around.
Bayonetta 2 is an over-the-top action game almost certainly unlike anything you've ever witnessed before. It's a shock to nascent eyes that aren't versed in the franchise's legacy and it never ceases to amaze those who've already had the pleasure of experiencing its anarchy.
If you've never played the original-- the studio's 2009 chaotic classic -- you're in for a real surprise. Nintendo first announced that the sequel would be a Wii U-only title back in 2012 as sort of a console launch teaser, even though the first Bayonetta saw a multiplatform release.
So even with the juxtaposition of console exclusivity on a platform that's mostly targeted at a younger audience, Bayonetta 2 is easily one of the best action games ever made. It's ultraviolent, oddly sexualized and perplexingly profane at times, but the game's action rises miles above these peculiarities.

Suffice it to say, Bayonetta 2 isn't for many players who likely own a Wii U. It's not a game for the easily affronted or pretty much anyone underage. But for the mature player, one who is able to appreciate the vast spectrum of art and different cultures from which it originates, Bayonetta 2 should absolutely be required playing.
Prepare to be blasted with a barrage of multicolored mayhem, celerity that your eyes will have trouble keeping up with and the breathtaking kind of boss design that will stay with you well beyond your time with the game.
