Bayonetta & Bayonetta 2 Now Available For Switch

Just a friendly reminder (like you need it) that Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 are now available as individual downloads on the Nintendo Switch eShop. You can also buy Bayonetta 2 on cartridge for $59.99 and the code for the original Bayonetta is included for free. Practice up on those skills while you wait for the announcement of a release date for Bayonetta 3!


Time to check your style and hone your reflexes. Both the original Bayonetta™ and the Bayonetta 2™ games are now available for the Nintendo Switch™ system. The deadly witch is back and ready to dispatch her enemies in creatively devastating ways.

See how the saga started! Bayonetta has lost her memory after being asleep at the bottom of a lake for 500 years. The Umbran Witch must now summon Infernal Demons, dodge enemy attacks to slow down time, and defend against the armies of Paradiso as she uncovers the truth of her long-lost past. Deftly change weapons to take out your foes in the most stylish way possible!

Bayonetta 2
Bayonetta sets on a quest to save her friend’s soul, and it will take all the pistols, whips, hammers, flamethrowers, and poison bows at her disposal to do it. This sequel takes the original game’s stylized action and massive scale and amplifies them to ridiculous levels. You’ll also be able to team up with other Umbra Witches in a two-player cooperative mode that can be played via local wireless* or online.**

Purchasing Info:
There are a few ways to purchase both games for one low price. Buying the retail version of the Bayonetta 2 game will also grant you a download code for the original Bayonetta game. Or, if you decide to buy digitally, buying the digital version of one game will automatically grant you a discount on the other game.
