Bayonetta's Automatic mode demonstrated (with one hand)


There aren't many games that allow you to play one-handed. You might be able to get by with one hand on certain RPGs -- leaving the other hand free to grab some popcorn during those really long cutscenes -- but, for the most part, it just doesn't work. Of all the upcoming games we wouldn't expect to play one-handed, Bayonetta sits right at the top of the list. As an action game from Hideki Kamiya, the mind behind Devil May Cry, we can't even imagine trying to play it without two hands sweatily clamped around the controller.

Thankfully, you won't have to imagine it, because we have a video. The video shows off the game's Automatic mode, which can be enabled in both Very Easy and Easy difficulties. As the name implies, the game practically plays itself in Automatic mode, essentially only requiring players to repeatedly mash the punch button. Automatic mode can be turned on or off at any given time, and players can still control movement if desired, making it ideal for casual gamers and even dear old Mom.

Nintendo must be so proud!
