The Bayonetta 3 release date has been set for 2022 in the long-awaited sequel’s first gameplay trailer.
Nintendo and Platinum Games dropped the trailer during today’s Nintendo Direct showcase. The third-person action combat that the series is known for turned up in brief snippets, complete with flashy gun attacks and a combo meter, but it took a backseat to over-the-top boss fights featuring Godzilla-sized behemoths.
By summoning her own giant monsters, and in some cases riding them, Bayonetta can match these giants pound for pound, landing colossal blows and treating buildings like playthings. She conjures up dragon, spider, and bird summons in the trailer, and these seem to be tied to a new resource and interface found in the bottom-left of the screen.
