Platinum Games' debut title MadWorld was released first in Western markets, so we were a bit concerned when word recently broke about a Fall 2009 Japanese release for the developer's second title, Bayonetta. All concerns were cleared today when SEGA confirmed that the PS3/Xbox 360 multiplatform action title will see a simultaneous worldwide release. That's Fall 2009, everywhere.
The announcement came today at a press event in Tokyo. SEGA showed off its upcoming lineup. Most of the games were Japan-centric, but the three main titles, Bayonetta, End of Eternity, and Puyo Puyo 7, are all probably worldwide titles.
Bayonetta saw a live playable demonstration by producer Yusuke Hashimoto, who discussed the game's "Climax Action" theme, which promises to let players experience the climax of a movie in every single scene. While we don't have footage of the demo session, we were able to get some super high-res screens of the game. See our Bayonetta media page for those.
The End of Eternity presentation was limited to just a trailer, which you can see at the EoE official site (it's under the "Movie" section after the lengthy and totally unskippable flash opening). SEGA's Hiroyuki Miyazaki and tri-Ace's Yoshiharu Gotanda spoke at the event, with Gotanda describing the title as "the first step in destroying the classic RPG." For first high-res screens of this, see our gallery.
Finally, Puyo Puyo. We've already shared all the details on the DS version of Puyo Puyo 7 (Wii and PSP versions are also on the way). The big news at the press conference was that SEGA will be using actress Erika Toda in commercials for the game.
