Bayonetta to be "sadistically hard game" says boss Hideki Kamiya

If you're a casual gamer who thinks bowling on Wii pushes you to the limit then Bayonetta is unlikely for you, Hideki Kamiya wants it to be super challenging.

He blogs his heart out talking his way through previous games he's worked on, Kamiya wants to be "completely upfront" that this game isn't some cuddly "heartwarming tale".

"...we want to be completely upfront with what we are making so there are no hard feelings or misunderstandings," blogs Hideki Kamiya.

"For instance, with Bayonetta, we would hate for someone to think it is a heartwarming tale and then buy the game to discover it is really a sadistically hard game (I hope…) where you play as a witch who laughs as she destroys angelic enemies."

So a white knuckle ride, pit in your gut videogame is coming our way with Bayonetta - it's about time we had another one of those, challenges are getting a little sloppy these days.

What with the bad rep Sega have at present (Stormrise just stinks), this one had better be not just 'hard', but good. If not, call in the Liquidators. I'll be passing...I hate 'hard' games as I'm just not that good at them.

They should have made it with a 'Hard Mode' or something. There's no point in making a game that no-one can finish because then no-one would want to play it!

I hear ya, hero. Sometimes if the difficulty is too high on a game, then that can take the fun out it. And I don't know about the rest of you, but I prefer to play games for fun. I hope they at least try to make this game fun (for the sake of whoever is actually going to buy it). If it's not fun, then why would I even want to play it only for a challenge?! And if I want a challenge, I'll play a GOOD game on the Hard setting. I think I'll pass this one.
