The long-awaited release of Platinum Games' (Madworld) Bayonetta finally has some grounding in reality, with Sega today announcing the title would hit Australia and New Zealand on January 7th in 2010. Bayonetta joins a growing list of games launching post-Holiday sales period, showcasing a massive shift in retail dynamic for the games industry.
Recently the game saw its first review from famed Japanese gaming mag, Famitsu, where it scored 40/40 for Xbox 360 and 38/40 for PS3 (not sure why they have separate reviews based on platform if the game is multi platform
), making it only the 12th game in the magazine's history to score perfectly (albeit on Xbox 360).
