Bayonetta 3 October Release Date Revealed in New Trailer

Nintendo has finally revealed the release date for Bayonetta 3. The new title in Platinum Games action game series will be available exclusively on Nintendo Switch on October 28, 2022. Preorders are now open on the Nintendo eShop at $59.99.

Bayonetta 3 was first announced in 2017 and the director, Yusuke Miyata had stated in 2021 that it was nearing completion. The third game in the series promises a new look for Bayonetta and Jeanne along with the over-the-top high-octane action we know and love.

The enemies this time are manmade bioweapons called Homunculi. Using Bayonetta’s guns and Witch Time ability, players will have to abuse the combos as you fight through the streets of Tokyo, the China mountains, and various areas across the world.

The new Bayonetta 3 trailer also highlights a playable witch in training called Viola, and someone who looks a lot like Bayonetta. In fact, the official page on the eShop mentions she’ll meet a virtual coven of Bayonettas, each with their own look. Supposedly this weird alliance of Bayonettas may hold the key to saving reality this time around.

Platinum Games also shared the following information:

Besides the digital edition, Bayonetta 3 will also be available in a physical Trinity Masquerade Edition, which includes a full-color artbook with 200 pages and three reversible game cases, which represent each of the previous games (despite not including the previous games in the package) and combine as a panoramic artwork for the whole trilogy. Details such as pricing and pre-orders will be available later, but it’ll be possible to get it at select retailers and My Nintendo Store.
