Nintendo recently announced that the third title of this action-adventure video game series would be available from October 28, 2022. The maker of Nintendo Switch, one of the video game consoles that support Bayonetta, even shared a short trailer of Bayonetta 3, not to mention added an option for buyers to pre-order the game.

Bayonetta 3 comes with new locales, including the mountains of China and the streets of Tokyo. Sporting an evil-looking new ensemble, Bayonetta encounters witches more formidable than ever who haven’t given up on their original quest to wipe out humanity, history, and reality as we know it for good.
She fights through the streets as she heads somewhere to find a scientist named “Sigurd,” who is supposed to offer some help.
When she faces a mysterious evil, things get complicated and nasty, and she can only depend on her time-slowing ability and signature guns. This time, she overcomes the Homunculi, the invading artificial bioweapons that have been a pain in the neck in the previous titles.
It’s also worth noting that Bayonetta comes with a power known as “Demon Masquerade.” With it, she can channel the demon linked to her weapon to the mysterious creatures she has to defeat. This feature allows for some frightening yet exciting combos for the player to ensure fascinating action options.
There’s also a new playable character called “Viola,” a powerful witch armed with a deadly sword backed up by Cheshire, an unpredictable demon. You can assume her role of slashing and slaying evil creatures in hair-raising maneuvers.
What Is Special About Bayonetta 3 Release
Bayonetta 3 arrives nearly thirteen years after the initial sequel’s 2009 release. The second sequel, “Bayonetta 2,” came out in 2014, six years later. It’s been almost eight years since PlatinumGames treated its fans to a new Bayonetta sequel. We hope the company will compensate for that by offering us more adventure and exciting challenges in Bayonetta 3.
It’s a highly-anticipated sequel that many are pre-ordering hardly three weeks before its unveiling date. Nintendo UK, a fast-growing YouTube channel with about 359 subscribers, also recently shared the trailer of Bayonetta 3, which is highly promising. The response indicates that the game will be a major hit.
