Bayonetta, The Devil May Cry clone from original Devil May Cry designer Hideki Kamiya is a game that’s marketing itself with two things; It’s intense action, and the blatant sex appeal of its eponymous shape-shifting, ass kicking protagonist. While Kamiya promises the game will â€œâ€¦blow the doors off the action genre,â€ Bayonetta herself seems intent on making me blow a wad on the inside of my underwear.
To *ahem* reaffirm the sex appeal bit, Sega is now looking for a real life Bayonetta with the aid of men’s magazine Maxim. they’re looking for a who girl embodies the "style and attitude" of the aforementioned femme fatal.
"Bayonetta is lethal — she’s beautiful but brutal. We’re convinced she will stir up the Maxim readers.â€ says Sega’s marketing VP Sean Ratcliffe. "We can’t wait to see the Maxim.com audience rise to the challenge of trying to find us a real life Bayonetta."
Needless to say, I’ll be keeping a very close eye on this contest. I won’t say where I’ll be keeping my right hand.
