Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon Rated T by ESRB; Full Description

The ESRB has officially rated the upcoming Bayonetta series prequel by PlatinumGames, Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon. Unlike the other entries, this is the first game to be rated T, signaling a drastic shift in general appeal.

You can view the full ESRB rating description of the game below:

“This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the role of Cereza, a child witch on a quest to rescue her imprisoned mother. From a 3/4-overhead perspective, players traverse a forest, solve puzzles, and battle fantastical creatures (e.g., demons, fairies). Players cast spells at enemies while using a giant stuffed cat to perform melee attacks on enemies.


Combat is highlighted by impact sounds, slow-motion effects, large explosions, and colored blood-splatter effects. A handful of sequences allow players to perform finishing attacks on boss creatures: a creature placed inside an iron maiden; a severed arm used to impale a giant creature.


One still image depicts a witch impaled by a lance; another sequence ends with a character’s corpse dangling from a monster’s mouth.”

Bayonetta: Origins Cereza and the Lost Demon will launch for Nintendo Switch on March 17, 2023.
