Bayonetta 3 Switch

At The Game Awards earlier this week, Nintendo was able to rake in a number of words, including Game of the Year for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. What's even more exciting was the announcement that Bayonetta 3 will be coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch and is currently in development. The game had not been previously announced, so it was delightful to hear that the Bayonetta series will continue to find a home with Nintendo. No information about a release date for Bayonetta 3 is currently known.

As many would expect, another opportunity to play Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 for those that missed out on the Wii U bundle will be coming to Switch. Bayonetta 2 will be getting a port to the Switch, and the physical version will include a download code for the original Bayonetta (which is an eshop-exclusive). The games will release February 16, 2018.

If you'd rather go all digital, a rather wonky pricing system has been setup, but you'll be able to grab both games for a total of $59.99 either way. You'll have the option of purchasing the original Bayonetta for $29.99 and then adding the sequel for $29.99, or if you'd rather you can grab Bayonetta 2 standalone for $49.99, and then add the original for only $9.99.

With all three Bayonetta games coming to Switch and Bayonetta included as DLC in the latest Super Smash Bros. game, it seems that Platinum Games doesn't intend to look for another partner for the series and Nintendo will continue to publish the games. We're hoping for a 2018 release of Bayonetta 3, if we even have time to play given all the great games coming to Switch in the coming year.
