If you don't have a Japanese account, you haven't been able to sample the slice 'n dice goodness of Bayonetta just yet. But don't you worry none.
Sega has announced that the playable demo will make its way to North America and Europe on December 3. I know some of you have already tested the demo – and we're assuming this US/EU demo is the same as the Japanese demo – and most of you have come away mightily impressed. The game has received a bit of flak for running poorly on the PlayStation 3, but many of those claims appear to be a little blown out of proportion. First of all, most say it's difficult to spot the slower frame rate in the demo and secondly, Sega America has already stated that they're working hard to make the PS3 version as good as humanly possible before its January 5 release. This includes shortening the lengthy load times that evidently plague the PS3 version, as well as addressing any lingering frame rate issues. For our part, because we're not getting a new Devil May Cry any time soon, we just can't wait to tear things up with the slender witch. It just might be the very first great game of 2010…
But you'll be able to decide for yourself come December 3. That demo should be enough to allow you to say "yay" or "nay" in regards to an eventual purchase.
