Bayonetta Archives - Nintendo Everything

Submit a news tip


Amazon Japan previously reported file sizes for both Bayonetta 1 and 2 on Switch. But now that Nintendo has the official information on the eShop, it seems what the retailer had listed was slightly inaccurate – at least for the first title.

The file size for Bayonetta 1 is 8.5GB. Bayonetta 2 will still take up 12.4GB. Amazon previously had the first Bayonetta down for about 16GB, so this is actually a good change.

A few different Switch games can now be pre-loaded on the European eShops. These are Bayonetta 1 and 2, Kirby Star Allies, and Payday 2. The same option has not yet been extended to North America.

If you pre-load, you can be ready for launch. The process lets you purchase games in advance and download most of their required data. By doing so, you’ll be able to play almost right away upon release.

Bayonetta 1 Switch file size

Posted on 1 month ago by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 29 Comments | 0 Likes

Amazon Japan has already posted the tentative file size for Bayonetta 2 on Switch. Now it seems that we have the size for the first game as well.

According to Amazon’s listing, Bayonetta 1 takes up roughly 16GB of space. The final size may vary slightly, but we’ll keep you updated if there are any changes.


Conquest Entertainment, Nintendo’s polish distributor in Poland, has apparently provided a bit of additional information about Bayonetta 1 and 2 for Switch.

Both games will supposedly run at 720p. That’s regardless of whether you’re playing docked or in portable mode. Also, both run at 60 frames per second.

Conquest Entertainment also said that the team behind Bayonetta 3 is similar to that of Bayonetta 2, unsurprisingly. The company did not comment on the involvement of original Bayonetta director Hideki Kamiya or Yosuke Hashimoto, who directed the second title.


When Bayonetta 1 and 2 launch on Switch in February, it seems that Japan will be the only region with a physical version of the first game. Amazon Japan shows two separate boxarts for the titles as part of the “Non-Stop Climax Edition”.

At least at the moment, Nintendo will only offer a single version of Bayonetta 2 in North America, which comes with a download code for the original Bayonetta. Europe is getting a limited edition, but even that doesn’t come with a physical version for Bayonetta 1.

Thanks to Roto for the tip.


PlatinumGames has shared new details about the new version of Bayonetta 2 for Switch.

First, local wireless cooperative play is now supported. Tag Climax, which was previously online-only, will make use of the functionality. You’ll now be able to team up with a friend online or offline.

Nintendo and PlatinumGames gave Bayonetta a whole lot of love at The Game Awards tonight. Along with Bayonetta 3, the first two titles will also be on the console.

Over in Japan, Nintendo will be releasing the Bayonetta 1 + 2 “Non-Stop Climax Edition” bundle. It includes the games, a steelbook case, 22 art cards, and three sticker sheets.

Pricing for the Bayonetta 1 + 2 “Non-Stop Climax Edition” bundle is set at 9,980 yen.


Bayonetta 1 and 2 coming to Switch

Update: Trailer added below.

Original: The Bayonetta games are coming to Switch, Nintendo and PlatinumGames have announced. They’ll be sold as a package on February 16.

First 4 Figures has announced a new partnership with SEGA and PlatinumGames that will see the company produce original Bayonetta Collectibles.

Unfortunately, specifics have not been revealed at this time. It’s unclear what sort of figures are in the pipeline, as no images have been released.

For now, we only have this teaser:

PlatinumGames has opened a brand new Twitter account for its Japanese fans. To celebrate, Yusuke Hashimoto drew new Bayonetta art. Hashimoto is not only the director of Bayonetta 2, but also the producer on the series’ first game.

Based on the art and activity on the Twitter page, fans are speculating about Platinum’s potential plans for Switch. Some believe that the red and blue colors are a reference to the Joy-Con controllers. Platinum liked a tweet about the connection… and some other messages about Bayonetta and Switch.

Of course, this could very well amount to nothing. We do know though that Platinum is involved with Switch in some fashion.
