Following last week’s surprising reveal of the eponymous Bayonetta expanding her wardrobe with the option of wearing various Nintendo-themed costumes in the Bayonetta Wii U port, we have even more details trickling out regarding the Link tunic.
We also have a few new screenshots of Bayonetta in action with the tunic. Please note: The final two screenshots at the bottom of this article contain minor bloody violence.
We already know that the titular witch will wield the legendary Master Sword. Director Isao Negishi expanded on this in a blog post on developer Platinum’s official website, explaining that the sword will be introduced when Bayonetta performs her signature attack, the Wicked Weave, while wearing the costume. “Wicked Weaves will create a giant Master Sword that slices enemies clean in two.”
Negishi then elaborated on the Zelda-themed sound effects while donning the tunic. In addition to the previously reported “puzzle solved” jingle, the “treasure chest” chime and the collecting Rupees sound effect, he revealed that we have more familiar melodies to look forward to.
“We’ve included a few other sound effects well,” Negishi teases. “All taken from A Link to the Past with Nintendo’s permission. Those classic sounds really do still hold up.”
Negishi also detailed the Princess Peach and Samus costumes in the same blog post, which you can read here.
