Bayonetta 3 2022 release confirmed, thanks to Nintendo! The trailer for Bayonetta 3 did not disappoint, and the whole internet is abuzz with excitement. The gun-wielding Umbra Witch is coming back, and we may not know a lot about it, we do know it got a gorgeous, intense trailer, and that PlatinumGames’ upcoming hit is finally coming to us. We first got a tease of it back in 2017, and nary a word since. We can only imagine it will feature similar gun-fu, as Bayonetta sports a similar look with a new hairstyle. Best of all, it will be on the Switch.

Bayonetta 3 Is Coming, And We Can’t Wait For It:

It’s been years, and some of us – this writer included, began to think that Bayonetta 3 was never going to happen but we finally have a release window of 2022. The first two games really changed how the high-speed beat ‘em ups were played. It was a world different from games in the genre, like Devil May Cry. Both are stylish and awesome, but Bayonetta brings something different. Between her Umbra Witch powers and the guns on her boots, she just brings a special something

She’s iconic, she’s icy, and she’s powerful. The trailer, revealed by Nintendo tells quite a bit. The war isn’t over, and there are huge, intimidating monsters yet to fight. Who better than Bayonetta? She shows up at the absolute last second to save the day, leaping out of nowhere, dropping a huge fist on the attacking demon. She retains the sleek black bodysuit, and the thick pigtails are a welcome change to her look. Bayonetta’s got sick dance moves, and isn’t afraid to summon a titanic dragon to fight for her. That was probably the coolest part of the trailer for me. 

It also briefly featured the Astral Chain mascot, who is saved by Bayonetta, and it was a surprisingly wholesome moment. We may not know the exact date, but we do know that Bayonetta 3 will release in 2022, and that’s good enough for now. The gameplay looks fun, and the visuals look amazing for the Nintendo Switch. What a great Nintendo Direct, right? It does not look like it will disappoint, but once we know more, we’ll keep you up-to-date.
