Bayonetta Origins future

Nintendo and PlatinumGames have both briefly commented on the future of Bayonetta in a recent interview.

Only a few months after the debut of Bayonetta 3 – which released five years after it was announced – the series just saw the launch of another title with Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon. It sounds like we could be seeing this sort of thing in the future – especially if series creator and Bayonetta Origins writer Hideki Kamiya has his way.

Bayonetta Origins theme song recording

Nintendo is giving Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon fans a behind the scenes look with a recording video for the theme song. This is Le Chéile i bhForaois Sholas na Gealaí, otherwise known as Together in the Moonlit Forest.

The performance comes from Lauren McGlynn. Hitomi Kurokawa at PlatinumGames handled the music while Michael McGlynn wrote the lyrics. The recording took place at Abbey Road Studios.

Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon reviews

Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon will be launching worldwide in just a few days, but some early reviews are now starting to come online.

This Switch exclusive is quite different from previous entries in the series. Whereas the franchise has been known for its hardcore third-person action, PlatinumGames is mixing things up with more of a top-down perspective in which players control both Cereza and Cheshire simultaneously. The title also serves as a prequel to the main trilogy.

Here’s a roundup of initial reviews for Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon:

Bayonetta Origins demo

Ahead of launch, a demo for Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon has been released. This can be downloaded in all major regions right now.

The demo contains the first two chapters from the game. Additionally, players can transfer their save data over to the full release.

Bayonetta 3 theme song

Original (2/1): While Bayonetta 3 came out a few months ago, Nintendo has just now released a new theme song trailer for the game.

Rachael Hawnt performed the “We Are As One” song and came up with the lyrics. Hiroshi Yamaguchi handled the actual music. In the video, fans can get an inside look at the recording process.

Bayonetta Origins pre-order bonus

Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon is only a couple of months away, and with that in mind we’re starting to hear about pre-order bonuses for the game. We’ll keep this post updated as information on that front is shared in the coming weeks.

Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon comes just a few months after Bayonetta 3. This title is taking an entirely different approach for the series, however. As the name implies, this is more of an origin story in which players go on a journey to save Cereza’s mother. It has a more colorful, storybook-inspired look with a focus on exploration, combat, and puzzle solving.

Bayonetta 3 update 1.2.0

Bayonetta 3 has just received a new version 1.2.0 update, and it’s a pretty notable one.

The game has received a bunch of combat adjustments, changes, and bug fixes. Also worth noting is that a number of Niflheim stage conditions have been adjusted to lower the difficulty.

The full patch notes for the Bayonetta 3 version 1.2.0 update are as follows:

Bayonetta 3 character design

Bayonetta 3 lead facial animator Akifumi Sengan recently gave some insight into what it was like working on the game, including character designs.

With Bayonetta herself, Sengan pointed out how she has a new hair style for this title. The new entry also introduced a “cute” theme. That meant Sengan had to maintain the type of characterization Bayonetta is known for while also bringing along “that additional layer of cuteness.”

Sengan said:

Back when PlatinumGames held its Kickstarter for The Wonderful 101: Remastered, one of the stretch goals that backers were able to reach was a set of DLC featuring Luka as its main character, aptly titled Luka’s Mission. Even though it hasn’t been detailed up until this point, PlatinumGames has finally decided to share a small minute-long sneak peek at this DLC.

Sadly, there aren’t too many details to latch onto from this video, but it does provide a first look at a development build for the DLC. It will be a 2D side scrolling adventure game, and we can see a focus on platforming and shooting elements in the video. Again, no additional details or release date were confirmed, but it’s good to see that work is steadily progressing on these last few Kickstarter goals.

You can have a look at the Luka’s Mission Sneak Peek below.

Sol Cresta Legendary Fighters DLC

Today, PlatinumGames announced that Sol Cresta has received new DLC that lets players pilot fighters from previous games in the series. CR47 from Moon Cresta, Wing Galiber from Terra Cresta, and Wing Galiber II from Terra Cresta II: Mandler no Gyakushuu are available.

DLC can be purchased as part of the Legendary Fighters bundle for a special price. All content is being sold individually as well.

Here’s a rundown of the new DLC:
