Nintendo Japan has posted a new promotional trailer for the Switch ports of Bayonetta and its Wii U sequel, launching February 16th. While the audio is mostly Japanese, it does give a refresher for players who missed the game’s original release. It also gives a quick glimpse of Bayonetta 2‘s promised amiibo functionality, which ties amiibo like Fox and Samus to instantly unlock the sequel’s Nintendo costumes.

Bayonetta 1 and 2 launch on Nintendo Switch practically worldwide on February 16th. Japan gets the ports one day later on the 17th. The retail package comes with the sequel in physical form only, while the original is strictly a download.
