Bayonetta 3 revealed for Nintendo Switch

Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aimé took the stage at The Game Awards 2017 to debut the trailer of Bayonetta 3, which will be available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. It will be a Switch exclusive, not a real surprise considering Bayonetta 2 only came to the Wii U. However, it is a tremendous deal for Nintendo and should push sales of its handheld even further.

These remasters will fight and gun their way onto Nintendo Switch in 2018.

The Nintendo Switch has had quite a year and it looks like things are just getting started.

Platinum's stylish action game series, directed by Hideki Kamiya, made waves with its unforgettable main character and over-the-top set pieces when it debuted on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2009.

But it seems like both Platinum Games and Nintendo are invested in making Bayonetta a success, and the third time might be the charm.

A Special Edition box of Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 has been announced, also releasing on February 16.

But Nintendo and PlatinumGames aren't content with only doing things in half-measures; they've also announced Bayonetta 3. The previously online-only Tag Climax mode can be played either online or off in the Switch re-release.

It's not known when Bayonetta 3 will arrive, with the trailer simply stating that it's "in development". Nintendo is having massive success with their new console, the Nintendo Switch, and seem to slowly be bringing most of their Wii U exclusives over to it.
