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.

Bayonetta 3 pre-order bonus

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 nudity

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.
