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.
The contest invites artists to submit original drawings to WizardUniverse.com of Bayonetta, the lead heroine in the self-titled SEGA game. The winning submission will be spotlighted in Wizard magazine and the winner will receive an Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system, a 50 inch Panasonic TC-P50X1 HDTV Plasma TV and a developer-autographed copy of Bayonetta for Xbox 360.
“Partnering with Wizard Entertainment is a natural fit given their prominence in the comic community,” said Sean Ratcliffe, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. “We are excited to see what fans can do with a distinctive, feature-rich character like Bayonetta.”
All submissions must be received by August 28, 2009 to be eligible for consideration. Fans can vote for their favorite original drawing on WizardUniverse.com from September 1 to September 30, 2009. Wizard Entertainment and PlatinumGames will review the votes and comments to help them determine the Grand Prize winner, as well as the top 10 runners-up, who will be awarded with autographed copies of the game. The winners will be announced in October 2009.
