Bayonetta 3 Announced as a Nintendo Switch Exclusive Game

Bayonetta 2 for Nintendo Switch will support amiibo, including the Bayonetta amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series. There's also no word on whether writer Hideki Kamiya will return as writer for "Bayonetta 3", as his absence in sequel was quite noticeable.

Since no gameplay video or trailer was shown (apart from the teaser trailer published at the end of this article), we assume that Bayonetta 3 is at an early stage of development. But with the Nintendo Switch selling as well as it has, we doubt too many will have a problem with Bayonetta 3 being exclusive to it.

There hasn't been a Bayonetta game out since Bayonetta 2 came out exclusively for the Wii U in 2014, three years ago. At the Game awards today, Reggie Fills-Aime came out and announced that the first two Bayonetta games will be coming to the Nintendo Switch in February of next year.

Developed by PlatinumGames, Bayonetta released to critical acclaim on the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2009. Players can purchase the two-game physical edition for $60 or opt for the digital copy from the Nintendo Switch eShop. The previously online-only Tag Climax mode can be played either online or off in the Switch re-release.

Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 (together in one package) costs $49.99 at retail.

Very little is known about Bayonetta 3, with Nintendo only releasing a trailer at The Game Awards which revealed next to nothing.

That's all we know about Bayonetta 3 and Bayonetta 2 for Switch.
