All the details on Bayonetta 3, coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch.

Bayonetta is one of the most loved action games of all time. While originally starting out on the Xbox 360 and PS3, the series is now very much associated with Nintendo, after Bayonetta 2 was developed and released exclusively for the Wii U. Now Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 have come to Switch, and a brand new game, Bayonetta 3, is on its way too. With Nintendo set to unveil their E3 2018 content, it's likely that we're about to hear some more news very soon. In the meantime, you can get all the details on Bayonetta 3 for Switch right here, including news on the Bayonetta 3 release date.

Bayonetta 3 Release Date

Bayonetta 3 was announced as a Nintendo Switch exclusive via a trailer at the Game Awards 2017. This continues the series’ Nintendo exclusivity following Bayonetta 2’s exclusive release on Wii U. There is currently no Bayonetta 3 release date for Nintendo Switch, with the trailer not even hinting at a release year. With Nintendo's E3 2018 events just around the corner, it's likely that we'll hear something very soon indeed.

All we know about Bayonetta 3 comes from the trailer seen above. It shows that developer Platinum Games is creating the game and that it will once again star the game’s namesake, Bayonetta.

Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 released on Nintendo Switch on February 16, 2018. This has only served to get the Bayonetta fan-base even more hungry for a new game.
