Bayonetta 3 has finally gotten a gameplay reveal, and a release date. Nearly four years after its original announcement, we finally got to see Bayonetta's new moves, new enemies, and her new hairstyle.
Shown during today's Nintendo Direct, we were treated to Bayonetta going head-to-head with a massive kaiju monster. The trailer also provided glimpses of new areas and monsters, including a subway train and a monstrous spider. All of this takes place in a devastated Tokyo, which seems to be one of the game's key settings.
The final shot of the trailer gave us a glimpse of a character that some are speculating to be Vergil from Devil May Cry, or at least someone who looks a lot like him. Could we be in for a big crossover? We shall see.
After a teaser and announcement in 2017, we've heard very little about Bayonetta 3, and seen even less. Director Hideki Kamiya said that it would be safe to expect news on the action game this year, and we're delighted that's come true today.
Bayonetta 3 will be out on Nintendo Switch in 2022. Go here for our full recap of today's Nintendo Direct, which just concluded.
