Bayonetta goes big for the series’ most stupendous adventure yet, but also its scrappiest.

Oct 25, 2022 |

If all you care about is button-ramming combat that’s similar to Devil May Cry, you’ll have a ball. But if you ever wanted to believe that there was something deeper to Bayonetta’s story — some grander statement about femininity and sexuality and power dynamics — you’ll find the truth to be quite a disappointment.

Bayonetta struts through multiple locations in an all-new, over-the-top climax action game.

This time, invading manmade bioweapons called Homunculi find themselves in Bayonetta’s crosshairs.
