Bayonetta 3 pre-order

Unlike many games these days, Bayonetta 3 has only one edition. And, at least so far, pre-order bonuses aren’t available at any retail store. If it changed before the release date, you can find that information here.

What is Bayonetta 3?

Bayonetta 3 is the next entry in a series of action games starring a hero with a leather-covered title wearing glasses. The first game was released in 2009 and was followed up in 2014. Platinum announced its third game in 2017 with a simple teaser trailer. After that, until September 2021 Nintendo Direct, I hadn’t heard much about the game. I got the following trailer there.

At least in some trailer games, the setting is a city being attacked by giant monster-like creatures. Soldiers are trying to get rid of the beast, but little progress has been made. Enter Bayonetta, which comes hack and slash everywhere in the monsters. She can also use a variety of special abilities, including a new one called the Demon Slave (seen at the 2:30 mark) that allows you to summon your own monster for control.
