As long as Nintendo is introducing Bayonetta to Switch audiences, The Game Awards felt like a good time to keep her party going.
Nintendo of America's Reggie Fils-Aime took the Game Awards stage to announce that Bayonetta 3 is in development. Platinum Games will return for Bayonetta's third adventure and it will be coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch. No word on how soon it's set to come out, nor was there an estimated window given. While 2018 may be a bit optimistic, at the very least, there is a Bayonetta 3 indeed in the works. This is a positive sign for the franchise, which saw its second chapter receive critical acclaim (including from Shacknews), but also saw its sales wane largely because of the Wii U's limited install base.
For an idea of what's ahead, check out the teaser below.
