Bayonetta fans have been waiting a long time to get their hands on Bayonetta 3 and now Nintendo has finally announced an official release date. Bayonetta 3 is scheduled to launch for Nintendo Switch, this upcoming October 28th, 2022. Along with this announcement, Nintendo has also put out a new trailer. Feel free to check out the trailer down below, though you’ll have to watch it directly on YouTube due to the video’s age restriction. Also down below, is some more info from the latest press release about both the game and a special edition which will be released at select retailers. Oh and one last thing before you watch the trailer, Nintendo has also mentioned that the original Bayonetta will be getting a stand-alone physical edition for Nintendo Switch on September 30th. They state that there will be a limited number of copies available for pre-order at select retailers and available in the My Nintendo Store at launch. This new physical edition for Switch will cost $29.99.

In this third installment of the Bayonetta series, the unstoppable Umbra Witch must join forces with some familiar faces, the mysterious Viola and a multitude of other Bayonettas to stop human-made Homunculi from wreaking havoc.

In the game, you’ll make use of Bayonetta’s wicked weapons and powerful new Demon Masquerade ability to blast, stomp and slam enemies with exciting over-the-top combos and demonic powers. Prove you’re the baddest witch around by battling an evil that’s bent on plunging humanity into the depths of chaos.

The new trailer for the game reveals additional details about Bayonetta’s latest bewitching adventure and some of the new characters she’ll meet:

  • A Bounty of Bayonettas: Meet a veritable coven of Bayonettas, each more fabulous than the last, while fighting through the streets of Tokyo, the mountains of China and beyond! Along the way, find out if this arcane alliance can really save humanity and what fate awaits this bunch of Bayonettas.
  • Rough Up Rivals as Viola: In addition to Bayonetta, players will also control the feisty witch-in-training Viola, who is ready to unleash hell on the Homunculi with her sword and her capricious companion, the feline demon Cheshire.

A Trinity Masquerade Edition will also be available via select retailers and the My Nintendo Store! Get up close and personal with the beauties and beasts of Bayonetta 3 with a full-color 200-page art book, and display the whole Bayonetta trilogy with three reversible game cases, one for each title*, that combine to form stunning panoramic artwork. More details about the Trinity Masquerade Edition and pre-orders will be revealed in the future.
