The game will feature a two-player online co-op mode called Tag Climax. According to Nintendo: "In online quick matches, you can wager halos, the in-game currency that you earn by defeating enemies. You receive a large sum back if you can prove you're a better fighter than your partner. Halos can then be traded in a story mode shop to unlock new techniques, buy accessories and pick up alternate weapon variations."
Nintendo announced at E3 that the Bayonetta 2 release date will fall in October.
The new game will come packaged with the original Bayonetta, which was released on PS3 and Xbox 360 in Japan in 2009, and in North America, Europe and Australia in 2010.
