The new Bayonetta 2 trailer gives some insight into the game's story, as Bayonetta plunges into the depths of Purgatorio, a land filled with large monsters, dragons, and machines. The game will also include the new Witch Time and Umbran Climax mechanics that allows her to deliver more punishment to surrounding enemies.
