Game news Nintendo Switch: a sequel for Bayonetta 3, is it possible? Devil May Cry’s father closes debate after controversies
The famous witch of the Umbra had, once again, a lot to face with the threat of this third part. However, there is another major concern that this dear Bayonetta did not see coming, and it contained even more twists and turns than the plot of this new adventure on Nintendo Switch: namely, the controversy surrounding her former voice actress, Helena Taylor. To this was added the frustration of the fans with the last hour of the game, a concern rectified in Bayonetta 4?
- Almost faultless for Bayonetta 3 on Nintendo Switch!
- Will Nintendo be able to count on Bayonetta again? Hideki Kamiya responds
Almost faultless for Bayonetta 3 on Nintendo Switch!
The fearsome witch may have built her reputation when the first part of her adventures was released on Sony and Microsoft consoles in the early 2010s, but she finally migrated to Nintendo to continue writing her legend. A risky but highly profitable decision since the second part was extremely well received by the press and by the fans! This success, Bayonetta 3 managed to reproduce it, at least on the critical side, but does not seem to be unanimous among players. It must be said that at the start, we feared the worst for the Nintendo Switch exclusivity as the game’s campaign gave way to a lunar soap opera following the statements of the witch’s former voice actress, Hellena Taylor.
If we had thus been able to fear for the success of the game, it was not so and the teams of Platinum Games, as well as Hideki Kamiya, famous figure of the video game at the origin, among others, of Devil May Cry, were able to blow. In the end, Bayonetta became even more popular than ever, even too coveted by Nintendo Switch playersbut his last adventures are not free from reproach according to the buyers, in particular about the last hour of the game. Did Hideki Kamiya come up with a wobbly conclusion to this trilogy, or does this all open the door to a still edgy, action-packed tetralogy? The director himself provided the answer!
Will Nintendo be able to count on Bayonetta again? Hideki Kamiya responds
We know Hideki Kamiya’s temperament on social networks, especially when it comes to talking about Bayonetta 3. Undoubtedly, this one must have been questioned many times about the last hour of the game and the end of the Nintendo exclusivity as it disconcerted the players, and this especially since we did not know the future of the license shortly after its release on Nintendo’s portable console. It will therefore have been necessary to wait a little less than a month to have a response from the director on social networks.
I didn’t think it was unexpected at all, but it seems that the ending of Bayo 3 was not properly communicated to all players, so I think Bayo 4 will be an unexpected creation for everyone ( …) After all, when Bayo 4 comes out, I’m sure there will be people who will say, “You added that after the fact”, so I’m saying it now.
In his November 18 post on Twitter, the director confirms that the adventures of Bayonetta will not be a trilogy and that there would be enough to set up a fourth episode. Those who feared that the adventures of the witch would be impacted by these controversies, whether it was the controversial end of Bayonetta 3 or the declarations of the former dubber, can be relieved: the powerful Bayonneta has not said its last word!
