Bayonetta struts through multiple locations in an all-new, over-the-top climax action game. Sporting a wicked new ensemble and somehow familiar pigtails, the titular Umbra Witch must face a mysterious evil using her signature guns and time-slowing Witch Time ability. This time, invading manmade bioweapons called Homunculi find themselves in Bayonetta's crosshairs.

Get ready for a devilishly good time

Tap into Bayonetta's naughtier side with Demon Masquerade, a new ability that channels the demon linked to her weapon allowing for some exciting action options, not to mention some hair-raising combos. She can also summon her demonic darlings like Gomorrah, Malphas, and Phantasmaraneae during battle, unleashing their demonic powers in the heat of combat and in new, larger-than-life battles where you directly control the action.

A bounty of Bayonettas

Fight your way through the streets of Tokyo, the mountains of China, and many other locales! Along the way you’ll meet a virtual coven of Bayonettas, each more fabulous than the last. You’ll also slash and slay as Viola, a feisty witch in training who fights with a sword and a capricious companion, the demon Cheshire. Find out what fate awaits Bayonetta, and if this arcane alliance can really save reality!


Bayonetta 3 was initially revealed with a teaser trailer shown during The Game Awards 2017, immediately following the reveal of the Nintendo Switch ports of Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2.[7] The first proper gameplay trailer for the title would be shown during the Nintendo Direct on September 23, 2021.[8] Series producer Hideki Kamiya would explain that it had been decided from the beginning that Nintendo would fund development[9], and that Nintendo and SEGA had agreed that the game would be a console exclusive.[10]
