Fans can now rejoice after 8 long years of waiting for the sequel to Bayonetta 2 will finally be theirs.
After what felt like a soul-crushing truth that there would never be a sequel to the first Bayonetta, Nintendo stepped in after Sega left its support for the project. Bayonetta 2 was in limbo for several years until Nintendo announced its revival in 2012. Since then another sequel seemed assured, it was only a matter of time. While Bayonetta 3 was announced only 3 years after the first sequel’s release, it took a lot of patience and bated breath to get to this point. Finally, however, the long wait and journey are almost over and soon the third installment will all be on our Nintendo Switches.
You can pre-order Bayonetta 3 now as it was announced during the Nintendo Direct. So if you want to make sure you absolutely have your digital or physical copy as soon as possible, be sure not to forget. As well as the standard physical and digital editions of the game, you can expect a box set special edition.
