New Bayonetta 3 details revealed, arrives this fall

The long-awaited third entry in the Bayonetta series is set to hit the Switch this October. Check out the latest details, including the new characters.

That’s a lotta Bayo’s

After a long, long time in the hopper, Nintendo and Platinumgames’ Bayonetta 3 is finally on the way. The action title is set to land on the Nintendo Switch this October 28th. But if you were expecting the same old Bayonetta experience, you’re in for a treat.

Nintendo has revealed that the Switch-exclusive game will change things up a bit, offering a whole cover-worth of additional Bayonettas. And that’s on top of the new witch-in-training Viola.

Here’s a look at the game in action:

In this third installment of the Bayonetta series, the unstoppable Umbra Witch must join forces with some familiar faces, the mysterious Viola and a multitude of other Bayonettas to stop human-made Homunculi from wreaking havoc.

In the game, you’ll make use of Bayonetta’s wicked weapons and powerful new Demon Masquerade ability to blast, stomp and slam enemies with exciting over-the-top combos and demonic powers. Prove you’re the baddest witch around by battling an evil that’s bent on plunging humanity into the depths of chaos.

Nintendo press release

Some more notes, from the press release:

  • A Bounty of Bayonettas: Meet a veritable coven of Bayonettas, each more fabulous than the last, while fighting through the streets of Tokyo, the mountains of China and beyond! Along the way, find out if this arcane alliance can really save humanity and what fate awaits this bunch of Bayonettas.
  • Rough Up Rivals as Viola: In addition to Bayonetta, players will also control the feisty witch-in-training Viola, who is ready to unleash hell on the Homunculi with her sword and her capricious companion, the feline demon Cheshire.

Again, Bayonetta 3 lands exclusively on the Nintendo Switch this October 28th, just in time for Halloween.
