After a debut way back when in 2017, Bayonetta 3 was announced with naught but a purple-hued teaser. Now, as part of the most recent Nintendo Direct, it’s yet again time to dance. Bayonetta 3 closed out the broadcast and it delivered in all you’d expect from the stylish action series and its scintillating lead. 



Beyond the gameplay and spectacle, which are looking up to the series’ high standards, we also have our first look at Bayonetta’s new design and a cameo from Astral Chain’s lovable mascot Lappy. Other familiar elements, like massive summoned demons and enemy executions, are back and looking more over the top than ever – par for the course from PlatinumGames. 

It’ll finally be Witch Time when Bayonetta 3 comes to Switch sometime in 2022.
