Bayonetta 2, the Wii U sequel to the critically acclaimed hair-based witch action game, will feature in next week's Nintendo Direct E3 broadcast, the game's creator Hideki Kamiya has confirmed.

"Next Ninty Direct..." wrote Kamiya on Twitter in response to a fan question.

Nintendo's E3 broadcast will take place at 3pm BST on June 11, the day after we see lots of PS4 and Xbox One titles during Sony and Microsoft's E3 conferences. Nintendo isn't hosting a traditional E3 conference.

As well as new information on Bayonetta 2, also keep an eye out for details on Wii U Smash Bros, a 3D Mario game and Mario Kart.
