OK, let’s be clear. The guy is happy with the character design. And the character’s pose. And the outfit. But there are a couple things that are ticking Bayonetta creator Hideki Kamiya off.
“I hate the logo of WiiU ver.,” tweeted the outspoken game creator in English. “Junk.” In Japanese, Kamiya was slightly more salty, tweeting, “The Bayo 2 package is shit. Who’s the damned bastard who changed it…”
When asked if he had control over this, Kamiya answered, “No. They did it without any permission.”
When asked why he was upset, Kamiya replied, “They removed the crescent behind Bayo & put full moon & changed the colour of “2” in red. JUNK.”
In the top image, you can see how the original art compares to the game’s Wii U box art. I kind of agree with Kamiya. The new Wii U box art isn’t as good as the original design.
As Kotaku reported yesterday, Bayonetta 2 comes with the prequel Bayonetta, free of charge. That’s pretty cool. Those box art changes? Less so.
