An intriguing new Bayonetta 3 theory is doing the rounds among fans, suggesting we might be playing as two versions of the same character.
Yesterday, a brand new Bayonetta 3 trailer surfaced through a Nintendo Direct, giving us our first look at the sequel from PlatinumGames in nearly four years. The titular umbral witch was sporting a slightly different look in the latest trailer, and some fans are linking this to a past character from the first game in the series.
Below, YouTuber Suzi Hunter does a good job of breaking down the theory. As Hunter explains, the original Bayonetta saw the protagonist literally saving her past self as a young child, when she bore the name Cereza. Hunter and others are theorizing that the character we saw in yesterday’s trailer for Bayonetta 3 actually isn’t the version of the character we knew, but a grown up version of Cereza.
