I haven't played Three Houses. Just haven't gotten the to get around to it, really.
But I disagree a lot here. I think the combat is not clunky at all. It's actually very fluid. Mind you, this is not a Bayonetta game so of course the combat and game in general will be different. I think the combat, with controlling both your main and the Legions was dar smooth, crative and very exciting. I loved the story, but a sequel is welcomed of course. The music and atmosphere etc. But to each their on, of course.
Bayonetta 3 obviously needed more time. Platinum have said so themselves. I am prbably the one most exited about this game I know, but I can sure be excited that they might be taking a different approach in development but still keeping it Bayonetta (and Platinum, of course).
I'll probably jump through the roof when I finally get to see footage. But still very happy we got Astral Chain.
