Not a bad entry point against FIFA and Call of Duty (Bro).

3rd place was probably the realistic target for Bayonetta 3. However, only "up 4% over the Switch port of Bayonetta 2" is not great. Bayonetta 2 was a Wii U port, sales likely weren't that high to begin with. It released in the first year of Switch, Bayonetta 3, a new game released as the Switch approaches 6 years old. The Switch install base hasn't increased by 4% over that time. An install base of probably 118 million plus at this point versus 18 million after 1 year. That's a 555% increase, so a 4% increase in sales of Bayonetta 3 over 2, is a pittance.
