Nintendo said at The Game Awards that Platinum Games is developing Bayonetta 3 exclusively for the Switch.
It showed a brief pre-rendered trailer (above), and also said that Bayonettas 1 and 2 are coming to Switch in February.
Platinum’s stylish action game series, directed by Hideki Kamiya, made waves with its unforgettable main character and over-the-top set pieces when it debuted on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2009. Nintendo, in a surprise move, scooped up the series as a Wii U exclusive a few years later, taking publishing duties away from Sega and developing the sequel exclusively for its hardware.
In announcing Bayonetta 3 for Switch, Nintendo is showing that it’s doubling down on M-rated hardcore action games, its development relationship with Platinum, and the series itself. Nintendo hasn’t said when Bayonetta 3 will be available, so it will likely be a bit of a wait.
