Bayonetta 3 from PlatinumGames and Nintendo finally released last year worldwide on Nintendo Switch after its original announcement back in 2017. The wait was long, but PlatinumGames delivered in spades with this action game. We featured it as one of our best games of 2022. Read my review of it here. Since then, PlatinumGames released a spin-off prequel in the form of Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon earlier this year which I loved. Read my review here. Today, the developer has released the Bayonetta 3 Developer Diary Episode 1 focusing on the new and old for Bayonetta 3. Watch it below:
I’m interested to see what PlatinumGames has in store for the Bayonetta franchise going forward. If you’re curious about it, I’d recommend playing Bayonetta on any current platform and then grabbing Bayonetta 2 and 3 on Nintendo Switch. If Bayonetta Origins looks more up your alley, there’s a free demo that starts out very slow, but opens up nicely. I ended up liking both Bayonetta Origins and Bayonetta 3 more than most fans of the series. I’m also interested to see if we get more DLC or updates for Bayonetta Origins going forward.
Bayonetta 3 and Bayonetta Origins are both out now on Nintendo Switch.
