Bayonetta 3 Announced, Is Switch Exclusive


As if the news of Bayonetta 1 and Bayonetta 2 for the Switch wasn't enough, Nintendo dropped another bomb during The Game Awards.

Bayonetta 2 game, originally a Wii U exclusive, will be launching for Nintendo Switch on February 16.

I hope Bayonetta finds the audience it deserves on Switch and maybe will go some way to making those that think of Nintendo as just for children reassess the console and discover its awesome library of games. The announcement was made official when a trailer was revealed at The Game Awards last night, but we don't know anything else about the game. Bayonetta 3 will be developed by Platinum Games, the studio behind Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2.

Video capture will also be supported along with the Bayonetta amiibo released for Super Smash Bros. Get all the details on Bayonetta 3 for Switch right here, including news on the Bayonetta 3 release date. Like the Japanese version, it comes in a special box, SteelBook software case, and bonus Verse Cards, and stickers.
