Bayonetta 3

Bayonetta 3 story online leaderboards

A couple of story tidbits have emerged from a Bayonetta 3 classification listing, along with the apparent confirmation that leaderboards will be included.

The Switch exclusive was rated in Australia in the middle of June. As part of that, we find out who the main threat is in the game and what whole journey will be about.

Five years after it was first announced, Bayonetta 3 isn’t too far away from its launch on Switch, and we’re starting up our pre-order guide which will include any bonuses if they’re announced. Nintendo and PlatinumGames will be continuing the hardcore action series that first began in 2009.

Bayonetta 3 has confirmed a few story elements, including that the bioweapons known as Homunculi are invading and there’ll be a few “a virtual coven of Bayonettas”. We also know that you’ll be able to play as Viola, “a feisty witch in training who fights with a sword and a capricious companion, the demon Cheshire.” Other than that, the game will include Demon Masquerade, “a new ability that channels the demon linked to her weapon allowing for some exciting action options, not to mention some hair-raising combos.” Bayonetta can also summon certain demonic creatures like Gomorrah, Malphas, and Phantasmaraneae during battle. PlatinumGames recently confirmed that a Naive Angel Mode will be available to make things a little less risqué.

Bayonetta creator Hideki Kamiya has reaffirmed that Nintendo has never requested to make the series less risqué.

The Naive Angel Mode was revealed for Bayonetta 3 earlier this month. When it’s enabled, the character won’t reveal as much skin. However, its inclusion doesn’t have anything to do with a specific request from Nintendo based on Kamiya’s comments.

He wrote on Twitter this week:

bayonetta 3 release date

Original: Nintendo and PlatinumGames have set a final release date for Bayonetta 3. The game will launch on October 28, the two sides revealed today.

Here are the latest details:

Nintendo and PlatinumGames have readied a new batch of screenshots for Bayonetta 3. The images provide another look at the upcoming Switch title.

Bayonetta 3 Naive Angel Mode

PlatinumGames has revealed more information about Bayonetta 3, and we now have word that the game will include a Naive Angel Mode.

Bayonetta has always been a mature series. But with this new feature, PlatinumGames says “more people can fully enjoy it” and “you can play right in the living room without having to worry about what’s on screen.” When the option is on, characters will show a little less skin as they’ll be more covered up. It goes without saying, but this is completely optional.

PlatinumGames vice president Hideki Kamiya has commented on Bayonetta 3 as part of an interview with IGN.

Kamiya told the site that the Switch exclusive will have “its own color” compared to prior entries in the series. He also teased that there’ll be “new types of gameplay”.

Kamiya stated:

bayonetta 3 exclusivity exclusive

PlatinumGames’ Hideki Kamiya has commented on the Switch exclusivity surrounding Bayonetta 3.

Bayonetta 2 is only available on Switch (and previously Wii U). Similarly, Bayonetta 3 will only be playable on the console. Both of these titles are published by Nintendo.

In traditional Kamiya fashion, he toys with fan expectations and responds sardonically. He starts off almost encouraging the idea of Bayonetta 2 and 3 on other platforms, only to quickly dash those hopes with logic and a sarcastic “good luck”. It’s safe to say that chances of these games appearing on PlayStation or Xbox consoles are slim to nil right now.
