In a new edition of Platinum's multi-part commentary on Bayonetta, director Hideki Kamiya discusses the odd musical choices the studio had for battle scene backing tracks; originally Bayonetta would be fighting to the sound of Madonna.
"At the very beginning we played Madonna songs over combat scenes for fun," Kamiya explains during a run through of the game. "Well not just for fun. I've always wanted to use a famous song during combat. Eventually 'Fly Me to the Moon' allowed me to do that."
"The idea was to merge Madonna's image as a sex symbol with Bayonetta's strength."
The commentary video is the latest in a long line for the 2008's action-adventure title. Check out it, and the other seventeen chat-tracks, atBayonetta's official page on Platnium's website.
