Famitsu Reviews Roundup: Bayonetta 2 Edition

From time to time, we like to post reviews from Japan’s largest games publication, Famitsu. As a staple of games media in the East, we have always valued their opinions even if they have lost credibility over the years. Still, that hasn’t stopped us from checking in on how they’re rating the very same games we tackle, in addition to the innumerable amount of titles that never make it to the West. Today’s review scores focus on many games, though Bayonetta 2 is certainly the center-piece. As one of our most anticipated titles, not just of the fall but of 2014 entirely, we were excited to see just how highly they scored Platinum Games’ forthcoming adventure. Take a peek for yourself:
