Bayonetta 1 and 2 are the latest big games for Switch with video capture enabled on day one. Thanks to the feature, you can record 30-second gameplay clips.

There are just a couple of exceptions. When the songs “Fly Me to the Moon” and “Moon River” are playing, video capture is disabled. However, if you turn off the background music during these segments, the functionality can be used. There’s likely an issue with copyrights pertaining to these two songs.

By the way, in both Bayonetta 1 and 2, you can practice combos when the game is loading. By pressing the minus button once loading is finished, you can keep going in practice mode.

The latest UK sales were reported earlier today. Following up on the initial news, we have some extra tidbits about FIFA 18 and Bayonetta 2 on Switch.

Regarding FIFA 18, sales saw a massive spike of 494% with physical sales. The reason? A heavy price cut. FIFA 18 was reduced to under £30 in the UK.

As for Bayonetta 2, we’re hearing that the game sold fewer physical copies at launch compared to Wii U. While it did place higher at #5 this week, it did so with a lower amount of units sold. However, one thing to note is that digital sales from the eShop are not included.

Bayonetta 1 and 2 debuted on Switch today. Aside from the Japanese Non-Stop Climax Edition, the only way to obtain the first game is through a digital code.

Unfortunately, some customers are having issues redeeming Bayonetta 1 on the eShop. The issue seems to be present if the code begins with “URPH”.

Right now the primary way to address the situation is by calling Nintendo’s customer service. They should be able to provide assistance and offer a code that actually works. The new code given should start with something like “B1”.

Bayonetta 3 was only just announced in December, and likely won’t be releasing for quite some time. Still, that doesn’t mean PlatinumGames lacks interest in continuing the franchise in the future.

Over on Twitter, original Bayonetta director Hideki Kamiya said that he has ideas for a fourth Bayonetta. Though the comment alone doesn’t guarantee another entry in the franchise, the interest is definitely there. It’s also encouraging that Platinum would know how to continue to the series following Bayonetta 3.

Digital Foundry recently shared a technical analysis for Bayonetta 2 on Switch. They’re back once again, now with a look at the first game.

Bayonetta runs at 720p on Switch when docked similar to the sequel. Compared to Wii U, the game on Switch has a bit of improved texture filtering. There are other very subtle changes as well, such as the approach to bloom lighting.

Currently, the only way to obtain physical versions of both Bayonetta 1 and 2 on Switch is by purchasing the Bayonetta Climax Edition.
