Bayonetta 3 Scheduled To Launch Later In 2019

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.

During the February 13 Nintendo Direct, Nintendo Switch pioneer Yoshiaki Koizumi announced PlatinumGames was still working hard on the game.

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.

What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

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.”
