Bayonetta is a good game. Bayonetta 2 is a fantastic game. Odds are pretty good that Bayonetta 3 on Switch will continue this tradition of awesomeness. Thanks to recent comments made at a trade show; by the game’s developers, no less; we have support for that hope.
PlatinumGames’ members Hideki Kamiya and Atsushi Inaba shared some information regarding Bayonetta 3 at the aforementioned event. Exciting words were used to describe development: “on course,” “in sync,” and “very excited,” to name a few. In fact, the pair shared this wonderful tidbit with show attendees:
It’s nice to be able to tell you that everything is going very, very well. We’re all very excited about what we’re doing on that game.
Hype achieved, and a fun story shared
Needless to say, hearing that development on Bayonetta 3 is going smoothly made my day. Additionally, series creator Hideki Kamiya provided a funny story to the audience regarding the original Bayonetta. According to him, he wanted Bayonetta to have guns for both shooting and smacking enemies around. After presenting this idea to the game’s animator, the artist suggested that Bayonetta should be able to kick enemies with them, as well. Thus, heel guns were born, and continue to be a series staple.
In my opinion, Bayonetta is a great series. Kamiya laid the groundwork for combo-heavy action games when he worked on the original Devil May Cry, and he perfected his craft when he made Bayonetta. It’s also wonderful to see the series doing well with Nintendo after they saved Bayonetta 2 from being canned. The re-release of Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 on Switch even sold better than 2 did on the Wii U. Between everything I just mentioned, as well as Bayonetta’s fantastic inclusion in the Smash Bros. series, the future is looking bright for Bayonetta 3.
