Bayonetta 3 is another entry in a famous series of slashers developed by PlatinumGames studio. Just like with the second game, Nintendo funded the production and thus Bayonetta 3 has been released exclusively for Nintendo Switch.

Plot

Bayonetta 3 continues the story of previous games. We play as a titular witch and engage in deadly combat against forces of good.

Game mechanics

Bayonetta 3 uses the third-person perspective (TPP) and is based on the same concept as previous games. However, developers slightly changed the gameplay to bring it to yet another level. We traverse locations and fight various enemies, including powerful bosses, using both melee and ranged weapons (mainly handguns). The protagonist also wields magical powers, e.g. summoning demons to the battlefield.

While the game is relatively accessible at the beginning, soon players must juggle with Bayonetta’s arsenal and skills, as well as master complex combos and special attacks. It is important to note that every action is awarded points by a judging system, and one can return to already completed levels to get better scores.

Technical aspects

Graphics of Bayonetta 3 are good-looking, with higher quality textures, but also better visual effects during fights compared to the second entry in the series. The game works at 60 frames per second, as is the franchise’s custom.
