We have a handful of new screenshots showing off Bayonetta and its sequel on Switch. Get a look at the images in the gallery below.

Nintendo has opened up the official Japanese website for the Switch ports of Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2; you can find it here. It offers no real new information, but it does have several new gameplay videos spread throughout the site, so check those out if you want to see what both games look like in action on the Switch. A currently empty “Movie” listing on the site also suggests that we might be getting a new trailer for both games soon.


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.
