Bayonetta 3 Conjures More Mayhem On Nintendo Switch On 28th October

Bayonetta returns for hair-raising action and larger-than-life battles in Bayonetta 3, which launches for Nintendo Switch on 28th October. The new Bayonetta 3 – The witch returns this spring! (Nintendo Switch) trailer for the game shows Bayonetta, new and returning allies as well as the evil she has to face.

In this third instalment of the Bayonetta series, the unstoppable Umbra Witch must join forces with some familiar faces, as well as the mysterious Viola and a multitude of other Bayonettas to stop human-made Homunculi from wreaking havoc.

Players will make use of Bayonetta’s wicked weapons and powerful new Demon Masquerade ability to blast, stomp and slam enemies with exciting over-the-top combos and demonic powers. They’ll help Bayonetta, the baddest witch around, battle an evil that’s bent on plunging humanity into the depths of chaos.

The new trailer for the game reveals additional details about Bayonetta’s latest adventure and some of the new characters she’ll meet:

  • A Bounty of Bayonettas: Meet a veritable coven of Bayonettas, each more fabulous than the last, while fighting through the streets of Tokyo, the mountains of China and beyond! Along the way, players will discover if this arcane alliance can really save humanity and what fate awaits this bunch of Bayonettas.
  • Rough Up Rivals as Viola: In addition to Bayonetta, players will also control the feisty witch-in-training Viola who is ready to unleash hell on the Homunculi with her sword and her capricious companion, the feline demon Cheshire.

A special Trinity Masquerade Edition will also be available on 28th October. It features the beauties and beasts of Bayonetta 3 with a full-colour 200-page art book, and displays the whole Bayonetta trilogy with three exclusive title sheets, one for each game*, that combine to form a stunning panoramic artwork. More details about the Trinity Masquerade Edition will be revealed in the future. Pre-orders are available now via My Nintendo Store and select retailers.

Plus, the original Bayonetta launches for Nintendo Switch as a standalone, physical release on 30th September. More details will be revealed in the future.
