Bayonetta 3 pre-order bonuses - the witch is back on Switch

We've got an overview of all Bayonetta 3 pre-order bonuses, along with details about what to expect from the game for anybody thinking of buying

Bayonetta 3 pre-orders are now available and for fans who have been waiting eight years since Bayonetta 2 came out, this is absolutely delightful news. A fancy edition with tons of cool bonuses has also been revealed, which is sure to appeal to some gamers, so we’ve got an overview of everything we know about the game and its pre-order bonuses so far.

So why should you get a Bayonetta 3 pre-order? Well, one thing that seems to be exciting a lot of new fans is a gameplay mechanic that sees Bayonetta summoning large demons and then controlling them through the power of dance as they do battle against other equally large monstrosities. Meanwhile, we’ve seen that she’ll be joined by a new playable character named Viola for this adventure, and we know that they’ll be coming up against human-made bioweapons, while reuniting with familiar faces like Jeanne and Ronin.

It looks set to provide more of what made fans love the first two games, while also expanding its horizons with lots of new ideas. All in all, it sounds like exactly the kind of thing a fan might want from a sequel.
