Bayonetta 3 Platforms
Bayonetta 3 can only be played on the Nintendo Switch. Since the game is being made by PlatinumGames and published by Nintendo, it won’t be coming out on other platforms like PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC. The same was true for Bayonetta 2, which was released by Nintendo on the Wii U and then the Nintendo Switch in 2014. The first Bayonetta game came out in 2009 and was published by Sega.
The Game Awards 2017 showed the first Bayonetta 3 teaser trailer, which proved that the game was still being made three years after Bayonetta 2 came out. Even though this Bayonetta 3 trailer doesn’t show any gameplay, it does set the tone for the kind of crazy, high-octane action we can expect from the PlatinumGames sequel.
Bayonetta 3 Gameplay Trailer
First Look at the Gameplay of Bayonetta 3 on the Nintendo Switch
You’ve had to wait too long. The witch has returned! A fresh look Bayonetta is back to fight enemies with her Witch Time move. This time, she will use her new ability, “Demon Masquerade,” to use the power of demons and do bigger things than life. Bayonetta 3 dances in 2022.
During a Nintendo Direct show in September 2021, we saw Bayonetta 3 in action. In it, PlatinumGames gave us our first look at the Nintendo Switch-only game in action and teased new features like the Demon Slave, which lets you control Infernal Demons in the middle of battle. See how Bayonetta 3 is played in the video above.
Bayonetta 3 gameplay
The gameplay of Bayonetta 3 will build on the systems and mechanics of Bayonetta 2, which came out in 2014. Bayonetta 2 was a fast-paced action-adventure game that was loved for its spectacular combat. The Bayonetta 3 gameplay has only been shown to us briefly by developer PlatinumGames, but we have been able to pick apart the trailers to learn a few new things.
For example, we know that fan-favorite gameplay elements like Witch Time, Torture Attacks, and Wicked Weaves will be back, but in a bigger way. For example, Bayonetta can use multiple Torture Attacks at once to make them more powerful. We also know that Bayonetta will get a few new moves, like Demon Masquerade, which lets the Witch temporarily take the form of a demon, and Demon Slave, which builds on the idea of Climax Summons by letting you take control of demons and do a lot of annoying things with them.
Bayonetta 3 Story
PlatinumGames hasn’t said much about Bayonetta 3’s story, but there are rumors about what the charming witch will do in her next adventure. On the official website for Bayonetta 3, the plot is described in broad strokes: “Strange creatures that don’t look like angels or demons attack the streets of Tokyo’s Shibuya neighborhood, where Bayonetta then makes a graceful entrance. What’s her deal with Tokyo? And how far does this new enemy’s attack reach?”
More recently, a Bayonetta 3 rating from an Australian classification board (opens in new tab) seems to have revealed some further plot details. It says, “Bayonetta 3 is an action-adventure game in which human characters travel through a series of fantasy environments, fighting monsters called Homunculi and an evil being called Singularity.” “Players must get to an island called Thule to stop Singularity from destroying all the known worlds.”
Bayonetta 3 Development
Bayonetta 3 is the third game in the Bayonetta series by PlatinumGames. The first game in the series came out in 2009. The game was made by Hideki Kamiya, and it looks like his other work, like the Devil May Cry series. It’s a hack-and-slash game set in a world where angels called Lumen Sages and Umbra Witches are at odds with each other. Bayonetta is a witch who doesn’t remember who she is. She fights through hordes of enemies to save the world, and she meets many cute side characters along the way.
In 2014, Bayonetta 2 for the Wii U was a sequel to the first game. It made the combat even more fun, added some mythological gods, and helped the game gain even more fans with its stylish art direction and deep characters. Bayonetta has been waiting in the shadows for a big return ever since. The first two games were ported to the Nintendo Switch in February 2018, and a remastered port of Bayonetta came out on PS4 and Xbox One in February 2020. This is a great time to get into the series and catch up on the story.
Bayonetta 3 was officially announced in 2017 and confirmed that it would only be available on the Nintendo Switch in 2019. The first gameplay trailer came out in 2021. Since then, PlatinumGames hasn’t talked much to the public about the game. The last big news about the game came from executive producer Hideki Kamiya shortly after the gameplay trailer came out. He said:
“Bayonetta 3 is real, and the day will come when you can play it in your hands. Rest easy and stay tuned for more information because I promise that no matter how high your hopes are, we’ll give you an experience that’s even better.”
