Bayonetta is a stylish and cinematic action game, directed by Hideki Kamiya, where a witch with powers beyond the comprehension of mere mortals, Bayonetta faces-off against countless angelic enemies, many reaching epic proportions, in a game of 100% pure, unadulterated all-out action. Outlandish finishing moves are performed with balletic grace as Bayonetta flows from one fight to another. With magnificent over-the-top action taking place in stages that are a veritable theme park of exciting attractions, Bayonetta pushes the limits of the action genre, bringing to life its fast-paced, dynamic climax combat.
After hundreds of votes were cast to assist the judges from Wizard and SEGA in gauging fan favorites, the collective panel selected its eleven favorites with the overall winner being chosen by PlatinumGames' Hideki Kamiya, the creative visionary behind the game.
While Niccolo Balce's art took top prize, the 10 runner-ups were Darren Geers, Jamine Tyndall, Jason Meek, Jessie Lam, Levi Somerville, Eric Huang, Feliciano Mario Mora, Jesse Elliott, Autumn Lorne and Salvador Samano. As the grand prize winner, Balce will receive an Xbox 360, a 50 inch Panasonic TC-P50X1 HDTV Plasma TV, a developer-autographed copy of Bayonetta for Xbox 360 and will have his submission featured in Wizard magazine.
The runner-ups will all be posted in a special gallery on WizardUniverse.com and each will be awarded an autographed copy of the game when it is available in January 2010.
