We’re less than a month away from Bayonetta 3’s release and to ramp up the countdown, Platinum Games has started a developer blog for the title. Named after the in-game tutorial found in the series, this version of Umbran Studies will feature blog posts from different members of the dev team and details (and absolutely no spoilers) of Bayonetta 3.

The first blog post is by Yusuke Miyata, Bayonetta 3’s director. Since this is the inaugural post, Miyata covers the Bayonetta 3 trailer that was showcased during the last Nintendo Direct as well as the nearly 8-minute-long gameplay video (dubbed Ways of the Witch) released after the presentation.

 

 

From the Ways of the Witch trailer, Miyata talks about the two brand-new gameplay features that were shown off (Demon Slave and Demon Masquerade). He also mentions that the dev team “are confident that we have created a Bayonetta title that hosts the highest degree of freedom and the most content-dense experience in the entire series.”

Expect another edition of Umbran Studies as we get closer to Bayonetta 3’s release on Friday, October 28th.
