Bayonetta is a cinematic and stylish action game from the creative mind of Hideki Kamiya. As a gun-wielding witch with powers beyond the comprehension of mere mortals, Bayonetta NINTENDO SWITCH faces-off against countless enemies in a game of 100% pure all-out action. Outlandish finishing moves are performed with acrobatic grace as Bayonetta flows from one fight to another.
Bayonetta pushes the limits of the action genre with magnificent over-the-top action and fast-paced, dynamic climax combat.
Bayonetta is also available on PC.
Eight years after its first appearance on PS3 and Xbox 360, the wild and exuberant Bayonetta lands on Nintendo Switch, and it hasn't lost a bit of its sexy charm. This new release can be appreciated wherever you want, with a solid and granitic 60 fps, and a better visual experience on the go.
Bayonetta is a stellar action-adventure game oozing with style and substance from start to finish. Newcomers may be put off by the portrayal of its title character, and the visuals are definitely starting to show their age, but the gameplay remains consistently brilliant throughout. A must-buy.
If you ever thought about playing either Bayonetta or Bayonetta 2, now is the time. [Issue #32 – March/April 2018, p. 67]
Bayonetta on the Switch is a fantastic port for handheld mode but there’s not much improved for TV gamers aside from load times.
While not as essential a port as Bayonetta 2, the first chapter in the series remains an incredible milestone in the action genre, and a must play for anyone who loves fast-paced and spectacular combat.
Bayonetta on Switch is a satisfying experience even today, despite the years on the shoulders of the beautiful witch. The portable version, even if with some smudging, manages to keep the fun in the massacre host of angels ready to war.
Bayonetta for Switch might not be the best version, but it's well worth playing for the first time.
