Bayonetta 1 & 2 being removed from the Wii U eShop in Japan

Bye-bye, Bayonetta

Nintendo announced plans to remove both Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 from the Japanese Wii U eShop on Sept. 18th, 2019. Nintendo has not given a reason for this removal. Thankfully, the Switch versions of both games will remain available to purchase.


Well, that was rather odd. We know the Wii U is dead, but does it cost anything to have the games on there?

Wasn't one of them download-only?

bayonetta 1 actually had a physical version if you bought the pack that conteined both games. I'm not sure if that pack was only at realease or not, but it was the one i got.

This... is so wrong. It’s a Nintendo published title. Is nothing sacred?

This is ridiculous. I want to hear their reasoning for the decision to remove them.
