Bayonetta's next release isn't already well-known on the Switch as it's already been with titles like Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
The Australian Classification Board has given us some information about what's in store for the Umbra witch, and it's evident that this description "may contain spoilers." There'll be lots of fantasy, violence, and online interaction (with the game rated MA15+).
Bayonetta 3 is a fantasy adventure game in which human characters travel through a series of imaginary worlds, battling monsters called Homunculi and a cursed entity known as Singularity. Players must navigate to a remote island, Thule, in order to avoid Singularity from destroying the known worlds.
Themes The game includes fantasy characters, such as demons and supernatural beings. There is a brief sequence where a character removes her own heart in order to increase her abilities.
Violence Violence is a melee combat style used in fantasy settings, using rifles, knives, and other weapons. Blood detail is sometimes included in gameplay and cutscenes.
The same rating mentions online interaction in the form of shared leaderboards. This apparently includes the ability to upload scores for "specific chapters" within the third game. It's not known if the game will support additional online features.
Bayonetta 3 was also rated by the ESRB last month, highlighting the game's maturity and in-game purchases:
