The Release Date of Bayonetta 3 is Deciding ...

The Nintendo Switch continues to be a hit for the company, with a steady stream of quality releases being given to players. Kirby and the Forgotten Land has just launched, and Splatoon 3 will be released in September. However, for some gamers, Bayonetta 3 is the main attraction, as the threequel will continue to run sometime in 2022.

With the year approaching, Nintendo and PlatinumGames have yet to announce an actual release date for Bayonetta 3, and there is some reason for concern that it may end up being extended to 2023 in the end. However, taking a look at previous release strategies as well as the console''s upcoming lineup, may be helpful in giving an idea when Bayonetta 3 will be launched.

The Rest of Nintendo''''s 2022 Lineup

Nintendo plans to have expanded its many titles in September, while Pokemon: Scarlet and Pokemon: Violet are expected to launch in November, making them the major games going into the holiday season. Even before that is the Xenoblades Chronicles 3, which recently moved up from September to a launch in July, and Mario Strikers: Battle League, which will debut on the Switch in June.

This gives Switch owners a large choice to choose from and touches on nearly every genre and interest, ensuring that the month of October is noticeably empty, lacking a standout title to call its own. Nintendo could be launching that month after a September release, which really shows its 1 major game per month strategy.

Nintendo''''s Reveal/Release Strategy

Nintendo maintains things quiet on its upcoming projects until closer to the expected release date. There are certainly exceptions to this, as Breath of the Wild 2 is certainly revealed well before its launch, but the game is still a mystery at this point. Nintendo likes to have a huge blowout for information and gameplay reveals to build hype just a few months before its release in December of that year.

With that in mind, Bayonetta 3 has yet to complete a thorough dive into its many features, combat, and other aspects of the game. As of now, all gamers have had is a brief teaser in 2017 and a proper reveal trailer late last year. If October is the month that Nintendo is zeroing in on releasing Bayonetta 3, then then a full-on presentation might be right around the corner, depending on the Super Smash Bros Ultimate example below. However, October appears to be a better fit for

All of this should be treated with a pinch of salt, and nothing is confirmed until the Nintendo itself advises otherwise. Despite the fact that Bayonetta 3 will be available before 2022, time is running out, and there are only a few rules for when the game will be played in the near future. Nintendo or PlatinumGames hopes to shed some light on the date when the game is released.
