Aussie Bargain Roundup: Bayonetta 2 for Switch

by Daniel VuckovicFebruary 14, 2018

Three and a bit years ago I wrote a bargain guide for Bayonetta 2 on the Wii U and JB Hi-Fi had the best deal, now once again they’ve come through with the goods. Someone there must be a fan.

JB Hi-Fi currently has the cheapest price for the standalone game, the special edition is pretty much retail everywhere or sold out. Keep in mind that both versions of the game require you to download Bayonetta 1. There’s only one cartridge.

Look for our duo of Bayonetta reviews later this week and as always, if you see a better deal, let us know in the comments.

    Bit annoying that the RRP is $10 higher than the WiiU release.

      Also be wary that importing may necessitate the creation of a UK NNID to redeem download token for Bayonetta 1.

      Plus you only get ONE game as a physical copy.

      I intend to import the Japanese special edition as Bayonetta 1 will have English on the cartridge (as evidenced by the eShop page). Being the dope that I am though, I will still consider buying the standalone Australian version so that I have at least one of the games in Aussie packaging. 😛

    A bit off topic, but are you guys going to do a bargain round-up for Radiant Historia? It also comes out this Friday. Thanks.

    So $50 extra to get a steel book, cards, stickers and a poster? Sounds legit…

    Pass. I’ll be importing the Japanese special edition, provided that it is available upon release (it’s currently pre-sold out on Play-Asia).

    Judging by the eShop page, both games will include all languages regardless of the region in which the game has been purchased, so the first game will also include the English version on cartridge. It is worth mentioning though that *some* Japanese games get their own cartridge release which only has Japanese (and occasionally English and/or Chinese), but this is quite an uncommon practice. The Japanese eShop page reveals which languages are available in their local releases, and both Bayonetta I and II include English language options in the Japanese release (and for what it’s worth, both games share the same file size with the Western release).

      I keep forgetting about the region free thing, a Japanese copy is a great idea – provided I can find one 🙂

    With My Nintendo giving 5% off digital, and eshop cards being 15% off, going all digital has been surprisingly viable for a keen bargain hunting gamer like myself

    Just a heads up, JB HiFi have removed it from their site so price matching may be harder.

    Bayonetta was $79 at my local Target. Wouldn’t price match JB

    Hey. Heads up JB apparently has very limited stock of standard edition. All Melbourne CBD sold out to Brunswick and EB Games Melbourne Central would not match without local stock available. Click and collect in the suburbs was the only way to get for $69 for me.

    So what is this “bonus DLC” that Big W are offering? I can’t seem to find details anywhere. Is it worth the $10 more than just the game from JB Hi-Fi? Since I can’t find details I have a weird suspicion that they’re just listing it as including bonus DLC because it includes Bayonetta 1…
