Bayonetta (ベヨネッタ, Beyonetta?) is an action game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 (PS3) game consoles, directed by Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe series creator Hideki Kamiya at Platinum Games in cooperation with publisher Sega. Set in a fictional city in Europe, the game will center on its title character Bayonetta, who can wield four handguns—among other weapons—and perform magical attacks to defeat various enemies. The game will have five difficulty settings; its two easiest ones will contain a game mode playable with only one button, similar to a mode Kamiya used in Devil May Cry. Its characters were designed with modern style and fashion in mind, while its music is largely upbeat and feminine.
The game was developed since around January 2007, and was released in Japan in late October 2009. It has been promoted through a television commercial with Japanese pop singer MiChi, look-alike searches, a theme for the Google Chrome Web browser, and an upcoming photo book and soundtracks. Critical reviews of pre-release versions have praised its easily learned moves, fast pace, boss battles, “Witch Mode” slowdown mechanic, and character and stage designs. However, they lamented inconsistent frame rates, duller graphics, and technical issues in its PS3 port, as well as its use of camera angles in both versions.
It’s been revealed that DC and Mike Shinoda have teamed up once again on their fourth version of the Remix Series. This time the shoes will be sold exclusively at SURU in Los Angeles in limited numbers. For this collaboration the DC’s Xander model shoe last was created from ground up by Shinoda that features a new black/blue colorway and SURU logos on the heel, tongue, lateral side and insole. With combination of leather and synthetic fabrics highlighted by key blue accents on pipings as well as crystal clear outsole that shows off artwork by Shinoda.
Limited to 500 pairs and available exlusively at SURU from November 20th until December 20th then there after it will be openly distributed to select premium retail stores.
