This only applies to Europe and North American markets as Japanese gamers will have it this October 29th on Xbox 360 and PS3. It's an "extremely important new IP" for them.
"Bayonetta is an extremely important new IP for SEGA and adds a new level of depth to our growing portfolio," said SEGA West's Mike Hayes. "As a result of market analysis, we have taken a Publishing decision that January 2010 is the optimum release time in the Western Markets to maximise this exciting new title's potential."
See the trailer below for some Bayonetta, and why witches with guns rock the show.
