In one of the more unusual popular culture cross-promotions in recent memory, family-friendly gaming giant Nintendo has combined forces with Playboy to promote hack-and-slash title Bayonetta 2, which was released exclusively for the Wii U on Friday (October 24).
Playboy Playmate Pamela Horton, voted Miss October 2012, donned the skin-tight leathers, guns and pistol-heels of the trigger-happy witch for a photoshoot posted on Playboy’s official site.
The reaction on social media was largely positive, with gamers making light of Nintendo’s squeaky-clean image:
Playboy is advertising Bayonetta 2. And people say Nintendo doesn't target mature audiences. 😛
