Pinch yourself – yeah, we really got our first look at the Bayonetta 3 yesterday. actually. It has real gameplay. and relax…
It’s no secret that the big reveal of Bayonetta 3 has taken so long – the fact that the game was first announced nearly four years ago was thrown up with an apology during Nintendo Direct yesterday – so finally seeing it in action was really welcome.
The first trailer for the game featured massive battles between skyscraper-sized demons, as well as rapid ground swarms, and in a new message shared to fans, game CEO Hideki Kamiya said the team can “finally breathe a sigh of relief” knowing fans have savored. Finally a taste of this game for the first time.
It also promises to “deliver an experience that surpasses all else [player expectations]And that’s exactly the statement. Here’s Kamiya’s full message:
“Sorry to keep you all waiting. It’s been four years since the announcement in 2017…we really made you wait.
During those four years, I’m sure people had a lot of concerns like “What’s going on with Bayonetta 3?” and “Are they really working on it?” and “When will we hear from you?” But as much as everyone wants to see Bayonetta 3 ASAP, we’ve all worked on showing it just as badly, and without being able to hear the cheers of the fans, we hung out and worked for four years.
Now we are finally able to show the fruits of our labor and the team can finally breathe a sigh of relief, and we can focus more on our work. It’s been four long years for us too.
The impressions of everyone who saw the ad will surely invigorate us. There are still a lot of secrets about Bayonetta 3, but for now, we’d like everyone to let their imaginations run wild on this trailer and get excited.
With Bayonetta 3, I’m still overseeing the world and the story, but in order to breathe new life into the game, I chose Yusuke Miyata, an old and trusted (though he can be a bit silly) fellow, as director.
We also have the talents of directors Yuji Shimomura and Masaki Suzumura who help us bring unprecedented amounts of smiles, years, drama, humor and sensuality to movie scenes.
And of course, Bayonetta’s look was handled by someone you might call her personal designer, Marie Shimazaki. This time, Bayonetta dances into battle, and she’s more fashionable and more elegant than ever.
So don’t worry everyone, Bayonetta 3 is real, and the day you can hold it in your hands and play is definitely here! Sit back and look forward to more information in the future, because whatever your expectations may be, I promise we will give you an experience that will surpass them all.”
