Bayonetta Has a Movie From Gonzo

Posted by Jeremy Kahn Thursday, September 19, 2013
At the Tokyo Game Show (TGS) it was announced that studio Gonzo would be releasing an animated Bayonetta movie. There has been rumblings for quite sometime that a CGI movie featuring the magic haired witch was in the works. It seems that along the way to become a animated feature, some of these plans have changed, as the movie is now being done in 2D animation resembling the design sketches released alongside the original game.

Gonzo, for those that need remembering, is the studio behind such titles as Kiddy Grade and Full Metal Panic! How much involvement Sega has with this movie is unknown at this time as currently they appear to have dropped the IP. The sequel, Bayonetta 2 for the Wii U, is being mostly handled by Nintendo. Still, for Bayonetta fans, this news does prove good as a movie will help push Bayonetta into the public eye more, acting as good publicity. Hopefully, this will result in more sales of the game, eventually garnering even more sequels.

Currently this movie is pegged for Japan with no plans for a western release. Hopefully, someone like Funimation will pick up the rights and bring it over. If this were to happen, would any of you be interested, or do you think this IP should stick just to the game world?
