If this year wasn’t already busy enough for the Switch with titles like Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and Pokemon Scarlet and Violetthere will also be Bayonetta’s next outing to look forward to this October.
If you want to learn more about the story of Conradh na Gaeilge Bayonetta 3, the Australian Classification Board has detailed the fate of the Umbra witch. Interestingly enough, the ACB even notes how this report may contain spoilers. There will be strong fantasy, violence and online interaction (with the game rated MA15+). Here’s another thing to look forward to:
Bayonetta 3 is an action adventure game where human characters travel through a series of fantasy environments, fighting against monsters called Homunculi and an evil called Singularity. Players must make their way to an island, Thule, to prevent the Singularity from destroying the known worlds.
Themes The game has fantasy themes, including monsters and supernatural beings. There is a short sequence where a character reaches out to her own heart to increase her powers.
Violence Violence consists of melee combat in fantasy settings, using guns, blades and other weapons. Gameplay and cutscenes sometimes involve blood details.
The same rating also refers to online interaction – in the form of shared leaderboards. This appears to include the ability to upload scores for “specific chapters” within the third game. It is currently unknown if the game will support additional online features.
The ESRB also rated Bayonetta 3 last month – highlighting the mature content and in-game purchases:
