Bayonetta is an action adventure game series by Platinum Games. The original game was originally launched by PlatinumGames in 2009 and its sequel was released in 2014. Then, in 2017, a teaser trailer for Bayonetta 3 was revealed, which after 5 years will be released next month.
Earlier this year we got a full trailer for the game. Now for the Nintendo Direct that happened today, we got a brand new gameplay trailer.
Nintendo revealed a 7-minute gameplay trailer for Bayonetta 3, which gives a deeper look at how the game will work.
According to today’s Nintendo Direct, Bayonetta will battle bioweapons created by humans known as Homunculi. Favorites from the series Luka, Jeanne and the new ally Viola will be at her side. Another major inclusion in the fight are the infernal demons.
Bayonetta could summon demons for boss battles in previous games. They will now instantly join her in battle and be especially helpful when it’s witch time. However, during the summoning, Bayonetta is exposed and vulnerable to attacks.
There will also be a couple of new moves called Wink Slave and Demon Masquerade. The former can help Bayonetta block combos and finishers. Demon Masquerade helps her channel demonic powers into her weapons. Besides, Bayonetta can also change her appearance and gain new skills. These skills can also help with traversal.
We also get a look at Viola, who will be the other main character in the game. She is not an experienced witch like Bayonetta, instead she is still in training. However, she will still have abilities like witch time (when someone attacks her) and channeling demonic powers into her weapons.
Viola’s weapons of choice are a sword and arrows. She is also tagged to ‘Hold the key to this story. This suggests that Viola is an essential part of the game. Similarly, other new elements of the game have also been shown in the trailer.
Bayonetta 3 after almost 5 years since the first trailer is set to launch on October 28th for Nintendo Switch. You can also pre-order the game on Nintendo’s official site. Expectations for the game are high and we really hope it delivers.
