Bayonetta 2

In our previous graphics comparison video, we compared the visuals of Bayonetta when played on three different platforms. Now we're taking a look at Bayonetta 2 on the Wii U and Nintendo's current flagship console - the Switch.

Bayonetta 2 was originally a Nintendo Wii U exclusive and, at the time of writing, the Switch version has not taken over the sales that the game had on its original platform. This is strange because the Switch as a console has already outsold the Wii U.

A lot of controversy surrounded Bayonetta 2 being a Wii U exclusive with concerns that Nintendo would censor the tone and aesthetics of the game, but fanboys and fangirls rejoiced as Nintendo did not tinker with the game but instead worked with the devs to be even more racy. But enough of our factoid ramblings - the big question is this: nearly four years after its debut, does the game look better on the Switch?

We answer this question right here.
