UPDATE: Some people claim Trinen was referring to Astral Chain. We’re listening to the podcast to double confirm and will issue an update later.
Big news, Bayonetta fans – Nintendo of America has announced a launch window for Bayonetta 3.
Adding on to this, Nintendo of America’s Bill Trinen revealed during the latest Nintendo Power podcast that Bayonetta 3 will launch before 2019 ends. Here are his exact words:
“Bayonetta 3 is still in the works…and of course that’s another game that’s maybe coming a little bit sooner than people anticipated. Later this year,”
Now that we know Bayonetta 3 is coming in 2019, 2019 is shaping up to be an even better year for Nintendo Switch fans. This would also mean PlatinumGames will release two exclusive Switch games this year – Astral Chain and Bayonetta 3.

UPDATE – Full transcript (via):
“This is what I think is so great about the partnership between Nintendo and Platinum Games,” said Trinen speaking about the recently announced Astral Chain, another Switch joint from PlatinumGames. “Because to me, I look at [Astral Chain] and I see the kind of intense action game that historically you haven’t seen a lot of on Nintendo platforms. With this collaboration with PlatinumGames, being able to bring stuff like that… and knowing that they mentioned, of course,Bayonetta 3, [which is] still in the works, it really helps to round out the library overall of what’s available on Switch. And of course, that’s another game that’s maybe coming a little bit sooner than people anticipated, later this year.”
