The Eyes of Bayonetta is perhaps the most comprehensive look at a single game that UDON has ever published. At 224 pages, The Eyes of Bayonetta collects all of the gorgeous, stylish, highly-polished artwork that fans would expect, but it also includes a wealth of little-seen design documents and an exhaustive selection of character sketches, including nearly 100 iterations of the main Bayonetta design alone! An amazing array of CG models, ‘Angel’ designs, weapon and accessory designs, gorgeous and inspiring location concept artworks, and rare bonus artworks is also included, and nearly every piece in the book features commentary by one or more members of the game’s design team, including superstar director Hideki Kamiya (Devil May Cry, Okami)!
The Eyes of Bayonetta also includes the exclusive DVD documentary “Witchcraft: The Making of Bayonetta.” This 78-minute documentary covers every aspect of this iconic game’s creation through interviews with director Hideki Kamiya, Bayonetta character designer Mari Shimazaki, producer Yusuke Hashimoto, designers Hiroshi Shibata and Masaaki Yamada, and a selection of other important members of Platinum Games, the creators of the Bayonetta series.
