After weeks and weeks of confusion and miscommunication by Nintendo reps, retail reps, and Nintendo’s very own website, an official Nintendo of America representative has laid down the final statement regarding how you will get your free copy of Bayonetta when purchasing Bayonetta 2.


This email is a follow-up to our recent response to your inquiry regarding Bayonetta 2. I’d like to apologize for any miscommunication on our end. To answer your original question and provide clarification, the format of the first Bayonetta will depend on the purchase method. That is to say:

- If you purchase the disc version of Bayonetta 2, the packaging will include the disc version of the first Bayonetta.
- If you purchase the digital version of Bayonetta 2, there will be an automatic discount to download the first Bayonetta for free.

Likewise, if you purchase the digital version of the first Bayonetta, there will be an automatic discount to download Bayonetta 2 for free.

In theory, this will finally put an end to all the inquiries regarding the free version of the original Bayonetta. Now, all we have left to do is to await the final release of Bayonetta 2 this October.
