Japan also decides to throw a couple of well known voice actors into the game.
Kanu is now even sexier than ever with a couple of pole dancing style moves to complement her fighting style, meanwhile, Chou'un is a Russian chick. Meanwhile MadWorld's Rin Rin is voiced by Weiss. Also, Joji Nakata is Jack.
Screwed by the Network: Sega's officially stated that the US and EU versions will release in Q1 2013, despite A) the Japanese version's release date is unchanged, B) the US and EU versions are DONE 100% according to Platinum and could easily release in July alongside the Japanese version, and C) The game would no doubt bomb in the face of the games coming out around that time. To rub salt in the wound, they didn't even inform Platinum of this until they made the announcement!
And the icing on the asshole cake? Sega of USA is giving the Bayonetta DLC -only- to Game Stop as a Pre-Order Bonus. Excuse me, what?
Luckily, this has been fixed, as Bayonetta is now purchasable DLC on PSN for a measly 99 cents for those who didn't pre-order the game.
