Bayonetta 3 sashays onto the Switch October 28th

She?s too fierce to be confined to a Nintendo Direct, in a drop that no one saw coming, a new trailer for Platinum Games? 3rd entry in the Bayonetta Series was released on Nintendo?s YouTube Channel today. This one provided additional story details, introduced new powers, a playable character and most importantly a release date. It seems the peace is being disturbed by a new faction known as the Homunculi, and it?s up to the Umbra witch to beat them back.

The trailer also introduces a new playable character by the name of Viola, sporting a long katana, pixie haircut and a denim ensemble, my first impression is she feels like a genderbent analogue of a certain other stylish action protagonist.

Bayonetta 3 will finally arrive on the Nintendo Switch on October 28th, 2022 and will be available digitally and physically in seemingly 2 forms, a standard edition as well as collector?s edition dubbed Trinity Masquerade Edition.

Finally for those who lamented the lack of a physical cartridge of the original Bayonetta, your prayers have been heard as a physical release of the original Bayonetta will be released on the Switch for a budget price of $29.99 on September 30th, plenty of time for you to catch up on the story if you haven?t enjoyed any of Bayonetta?s adventures.
