Ever since E3 there has been no shortage of confusion on how this Bayonetta 2 promotion works. At first, Nintendo said that all those who purchase Bayonetta 2 will receive a digital version of the original Bayonetta. Then, territories like Europe announced that Bayonetta 1 would actually be on its own separate disc. The American website for Bayonetta only added to the confusion when it listed a statement saying that those who purchase Bayonetta 2 digitally actually would not get the original for free, only those who bought the game at retail.

Adding to the confusion is Amazon Canada, which in a response to a customer stated that the original Bayonetta would actually be on disc.

Hopefully Nintendo clarifies this situation sooner rather than later, because I need to know how much shelf space to clear out when I buy Bayonetta this October.
