The official Nintendo Facebook page announced today that a special Nintendo Direct will take place this week, with the focus being on their upcoming release of Bayonetta 2.

You can watch the Bayonetta 2 Direct on the Nintendo website on Thursday, September 4. It will begin at 6 p.m. ET/ 3 p.m. PT. The direct will share some new, unknown details about the game.

Despite the first Bayonetta game not being released for any Nintendo console, Nintendo managed to gain exclusive rights for the sequel. For those that didn't get to play the first game they will not have to spend too much to give it a shot. It will come packaged with Bayonetta 2.

The Bayonetta series contains a hack and slash style of gameplay with tons of action and mayhem. It follows a witch by the name of Bayonetta who has been praised for being a female lead character and criticized for her sexualization. It's one of the few exclusive M rated titles available for the Wii U.

Appropriately the game will release right in time for Halloween, as Bayonetta 2 is set to hit store shelves on October 24.
