Bayonetta 2 - Summary

Bayonetta’s back and more powerful than ever.

Wield wild weapons and execute deadly moves—like the powerful Umbran Climax—to take out angels and demons in this breathtaking action game. You can even team up with friends in 2-player online or local wireless co-op fights (additional accessories required; sold separately.)


Bayonetta is a butt-kicking, havoc-wreaking witch who wields sweet weapons like pistols, whips, hammers, flamethrowers, and poison bows. But it’s not just about brawn—it’s also about style. Bayonetta is deadly but sleek, with moves like Witch Time that slows down time itself, and the all-new Umbran Climax—a special magic attack that summons Infernal Demons to devastate enemies. The Bayonetta™ 2 game also features an online and local wireless 2-player cooperative mode where players bet halos on their performance and work together to amplify their sass, cause destruction, and score some riches.

VG number (350k) compares pretty favorably to Ninty's reported 9 wk sell through (380k). I'd expect digital sales ratios to be higher for core focused Switch titles w/ a download code though. Not sure if the estimate was changed.

@Arfen - Better to use the GameDB search, it's more complete.

Why this doesn't appear on the switch software sells list?

Well, according to Nintendo, this game sold (not shipped but sold) approximately 380k in its first 9 weeks. Here in VGChartz without digital it could be about 340k.

260k in 3 weeks is actually pretty surprising for a port of a game that sold 850k

Since one of the games is digital anyway, I can see a lot of people buying digital. I wish we had digital numbers, as I got both games that way myself. Hopefully it has legs and sells well, and Bayo 3 does well enough for Nintendo to keep the series breathing.
