MCV looks at the best new products heading to UK retail. This week, we ask for help in Bayonetta 2 and listen to a new SteelSeries headset
Bayonetta 2 Prima Guide
Players who find themselves struggling with Wii U hack ‘n’ slash sequel Bayonetta 2 later this month are in luck.
Strategy guide specialist Prima Games is releasing this guide for Bayonetta 2 alongside the game, to offer help and tips to those in need.
The book, which will be released exclusively as a collectible hardcover featuring high quality art paper and unique cover treatments, will include everything a player needs to find every in-game collectable and beat the game on the hardest difficulties – allowing them to reach 100 per cent completion.
It also includes tips and strategies on how to achieve the game’s most prestigious rating – Pure Platinum – in each and every one of Bayonetta 2’s chapters.
Players will also have the chance to learn the best ways to fight the title’s many enemies with new over-the-top in-game weapons. These weapons include the Kafka, a bow that shoots poisonous arrows; the Rakshasa, a pair of katana blades; and a giant scythe called the Chernobog.
The bonus section of the guide will feature artwork of all types, including weapons, characters, stages and concept art.
The physical edition of the book also includes the full strategy guide in digital format, which incorporates additional eGuide-only features and is optimised for a second-screen experience.

SteelSeries Siberia v3 Prism
For players looking to add some visuals to their audio, the SteelSeries Siberia v3 Prism illuminates with up to 16.8 million brilliant colours in various customisable modes.
The suspension headband the Siberia series is known for returns, offering wearers a more comfortable fit during long gaming sessions.
Inside the noise-reducing memory foam earcups, SteelSeries audio drivers push out full-range, natural sound, with a focus on delivering clearer audio for a more pleasurable listening experience.
SteelSeries says the components have been redesigned to improve acoustics and are hand-selected for their quality – the internals of the earcups have similarly been re-engineered.
Users can utilise the SteelSeries Engine 3 software in order to customise and backup personalised audio profiles and illumination options. The software’s included CloudSync feature can be used to backup the preferences.
The v3 connects using an integrated USB connection to PC or Mac.
A flexible microphone for voice communication – for instance, during online play or live streaming – is included. For those not in the mood to talk, a microphone mute button is located nearby.
The retractable mic features noise suppression and auto compression, utilising SteelSeries’ DSP technology.
