But there’s good news to be found if you’re a Nintendo fan eager for news about two other exclusives in particular. It seems that, for all intents and purposes, Platinum Games’ two upcoming projects – The Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2 – will stay exclusive to the Wii U.
Joystiq has dug up a Japanese language Tweet from Platinum Games’ Hideki Kamiya, who noted that “Nintendo are the ones kind enough to fund and publish our The Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2 projects,” later stating that “if Nintendo says, ‘We are publishing Bayonetta 2 on PS3/360,’ then it will happen. So please go ask them, not us.”
What does that mean? It means that both games will remain Nintendo exclusive. There would be no way Nintendo, as a hardware creator, would allow games they funded and published to appear on a rival console. It would be akin to Sony letting Microsoft have Uncharted, God of War and LittleBigPlanet; it just wouldn’t happen. (This did happen with Mass Effect going to PlayStation 3, but remember that that was only after Electronic Arts purchased BioWare, the series' developer. In other words, it was a pretty special circumstance.)
Neither Bayonetta 2 or The Wonderful 101 have firm release dates, though it’s likely you’ll see the latter release before the former.
