Bayonetta 3 release date set for October | The Sun

BAYONETTA 3’s release date has been revealed in a new gameplay and cinematic trailer.

First announced in December 2017, fans of Bayonetta have been waiting to hear more about the Nintendo Switch exclusive.

However, despite many Nintendo Directs coming and going, only one in September 2021 gave us any more footage or information about our Umbra Witch.

Today’s new trailer not only gives us a release date of October 28, 2022, but also a lot more information on the game’s story and gameplay.

Bayonetta is known for her ability to transform into a panther, sea serpent, and sometimes butterfly.

However, the new footage shows a large number of transformations Bayonetta can take on and also fight with.

Alongside Bayonetta, Jeanne, Luka, Rodin, and Enzo will all make a comeback, as well as what looks like a new playable character.

The second half of the trailer focused on gameplay of a new character called Viola.

She carries a long katana, which she does combat with and summons her own beasts from.

While we don’t find out too much of her story, she appears to be working alongside Bayonetta, and has some history with Luka.

Nintendo has also announced a special Bayonetta 3 Trinity Masquerade Edition. 

The special edition set will include a 200-page artbook and three interchangeable covers for the series on Switch.

The original Bayonetta will also receive a physical release for Nintendo Switch later this year.

The first Bayonetta game came out on PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 before Nintendo provided financial support for a sequel.

When a port of Bayonetta and its sequel, Bayonetta 2, were announced for Nintendo Switch, only Japan received a physical edition of the first game.
