About Bayonetta

About this game

Developed by PlatinumGames and published by SEGA.

Bayonetta is a hack-'n'-slash title in which you'll take control of a witch named Bayonetta who awakens after 500 years of sleep with no memories of who or what she is. Developed by Hideki Kamiya, the brilliant mind behind Resident Evil and Devil May Cry's booming fame, this fan-favourite title had a fantastic release with its PC port for Steam!

500-Year Slumber

After 500 years of slumber, Bayonetta wakes up to a strange world that she does not recognise, with no prior recollection of who or what she is. Accompany her as she slowly gains recollection of her memories and learns about the two warring factions, the Umbra Witches and the Lumen Sages, and how their predicament connects to her sleep.

Genre-defining Combat

Experience Bayonetta's signature combat with fast-paced combos and fantastic abilities as you fight through the forces of light. Use her weapons, including her guns, heels, magic, and hair demons, to bring down the Angel threat. Choose between five different difficulties — Very Easy, Easy, Normal, Hard, and Non-Stop Infinite Climax — and use her entire arsenal, such as Wicked Weave, Torture Attacks, and Witch Time, to secure your victory!

Full Steam Support

Perfectly ported for the PC with Steam, Bayonetta takes all of Steam's features into account to make a brand-new experience: Steam achievements, Cloud save, trading cards, and experience PC-exclusive upgrades to take full advantage of the strength of a computer, with 4K resolution, anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering, SSAO lighting, scalable texture and shadow quality, and much more!

Bayonetta is a fantastic game with a lot of action, very well placed quick time events and a story that will keep you coming back for more! The rich and very in-depth backgrounds will leave you in shock and awe, the action will keep you coming back for more, the moves are out of this world and the combat is very fluent! The boss fights are some of the best I have ever experience!

If Dante was a woman he would be Bayonetta, need I say more? This game is very reminiscent of Devil May Cry 4 both in its gameplay and stage-to-stage format. The MC "Bayonetta" is extremely entertaining to play as and I'm not just talking about her gameplay. overall this is a great game that you will remember fondly. Give it a go!

A brutal hack 'n slash adventure, the dazzling combos look effortless with the brilliant frame rate. Taking heavy inspiration from Hideki Kamiya's other highly acclaimed titles such as Resident Evil and Devil May Cry, Bayonetta features a captivating story and highly enjoyable gameplay.

I never played this on my ps3, but I definitely enjoyed this. I hope to find 2 and 3 at a good price, but the switch exclusivity is gonna have me spend $100 plus.

Tl;dr if you like Devil May Cry then you will like this game

The game oozes atmosphere and has charm and love and care showing from all the corners of the game. The game is developed by old DMC developers so if you like devil may cry then you will like this, if you don’t like it or don’t know how the combat is, it is a 3D combo fighter where honestly it gets a little stale but is enjoyable enough to keep you going. Would still recommend
