Bayonetta 3

Platinum Games Head Confirms New Gameplay Elements In Bayonetta 3

Bayonetta 3 has sadly become a bit of a running joke on the Nintendo Switch. Because it was revealed all the way back in the systems first year during The Game Awards, and it wasn’t until 2021 via a Nintendo Direct that we got our first look at it. But even then, we didn’t know when it would come out, and the most recent Nintendo Direct didn’t reveal that either. So as such, fans are left wanting more info.

Thankfully, we have gotten a little bit of that. Platinum Games, and Bayonetta, head Hideki Kamiya spoke with IGN about Bayonetta 3 and he outlined a bit of what fans can expect:

“If you look at the [trailer we released in September], hopefully, that should reassure you that we have been hard at work on development, and it should also show you that there are a lot of new elements in this game that were not in Bayonetta 1 and 2. I hope the footage released so far will fuel your expectations for this game.”

“At the beginning of the trailer, viewers might have been confused about what game it was for, and then we introduced some enemies, and still it was kept unclear, and then Bayonetta appeared. I think the fact that we were able to pull off this misdirection in the trailer shows that the new game has its own color. Bayonetta 3 looks a little different, and it includes some new types of gameplay, so I hope players will find it fresh.”

He also reiterated that the game would be “unrestricted” as Nintendo gave the team free reign once again to do what they do best. Make an over-the-top action game.
