The third title of Bayonetta, the representative work of Platinum Games, is coming to the fans five years after its first release. The release date has been revealed along with a new trailer for Bayonetta 3.
On the 13th, Nintendo released the second trailer for Bayonet 3 on its official YouTube channel. This trailer contains a lot of new information related to the game, and among them, the release date has received a lot of attention. Bayonetta 3 will be released on October 28th, and it will officially support Korean subtitles for the first time in the series. In addition, the ‘Trinity Masquerade Edition’, which includes an art book, additional covers, and a special box to store the entire Bayonetta series, was also unveiled.
The released video contains detailed information about the main enemy forces of the work. Unlike the angels and demons that the protagonist has dealt with so far, the enemies of Episode 3 are homunculus, a biological weapon made by humans, whose purpose is to annihilate not only the human world, but also the demon realm and the heavenly realm. Previous enemies were invisible to the general public, but the homunculus appears directly in the human eye and harms them and causes great damage.
In addition, new characters were also revealed. One is a mysterious figure with the same face as Bayonetta, wearing a Chinese dress and colorful accessories, and the other is Viola, a playable character who works with a Japanese sword while serving the cat witch ‘Cheshire’. The former is presumed to be Bayonetta in the parallel world, and Viola asks Bayonetta to cooperate to prevent the world from disappearing. In addition, you can meet familiar characters such as Rodin, Enzo, Luca, and Jeanne, who worked throughout the series.
In addition, a naive angel mode that allows you to change the degree of exposure of the character is also installed. When the Naive Angel mode is turned on, the characters’ outfits and appearances change in scenes where Bayonetta summons a beast and takes off her clothes, or when the high-exposure Beast Lady Butterfly appears. It can be said to be a kind of retrospective mode.
On the other hand, with the news of support for Korean translation of Bayonetta 3, the Korean version of Bayonetta 1 and 2, the previous work, will also be re-released. Part 1 will be released on September 30th at 25,000 won as a package with download software and download number, and Part 2 will be available for purchase at a price of 15,000 won lower than before from the 13th. The two package versions are scheduled to be released this fall, and users who have purchased previously can play in Korean through the update as soon as the package version is released.
Bayonetta 3 main game and Trinity Masquerade Edition will be released on October 28th. You can enjoy it on the Nintendo Switch, and the main game costs 64,800 won, and the Trinity Masquerade Edition costs 94,800 won.
