A surprise physical release for a surprise game!
Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon was announced for Switch during The Game Awards, but Nintendo has since shared a few more details. Most importantly, we now know the game will be getting a physical release alongside the already-mentioned digital option.
Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon is a new take on the Bayonetta series starring Cereza, a young apprentice witch before she would come to be called Bayonetta. The game launches for Switch on March 17, 2023.
In Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon, players take on the role of Cereza, a young apprentice witch, and start a fateful journey into a forbidden forest to gain the power to save her mother. In addition to sporting a striking and distinct storybook-inspired art style of its own, this new title also features gameplay never before seen in the Bayonetta series. Controlling both Cereza and her infernal demon partner, Cheshire, players will focus on exploration, combat and puzzle solving to help Cereza go deeper into the forest.
Players who want a sneak peek of the game won’t have to wait long at all! In fact, a brief playable teaser for Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon can be accessed within the Bayonetta 3 game! Players who purchased the Old Picture Book at Rodin’s shop, The Gates of Hell, using in-game currency and unlocked it with three keys will be able to access the teaser.
