Platinum Games are developing Bayonetta 3 exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. The reveal trailer showcased during the 2017 Game Awards didn’t show much more than some vague visual cues and the reveal of the official logo. As such, drawing any substantial information from it – such as its release date or plot details – is especially difficult and somewhat irresponsible at this early date.
If you still haven’t had the honor of being a first-time Bayonetta player, you should first know that Platinum Games’ franchise is arguably the best action experience of its kind since the glory days of the Devil May Cry series. The second game in the series was released exclusively for Wii U in 2014. It was one of the most critically acclaimed games of the year and is widely considered to be among the finest action titles ever made.
Can Platinum do it again? Well, based on their history of meeting and surpassing expectations, we have a pretty good feeling that they’ll find a way to live up their promises of delivering a game that raises the bar.
