Rumor: Bayonetta 3 was going to be a Super Mario 64 and Astral Chain style semi-open world game

We bring a new compilation that has been recently known and is related to one of the most outstanding titles in the catalog on the hybrid console. This time we are talking about Bayonetta 3.

Bayonetta 3

after knowing its new trailer and its release datebeside your special edition, now we bring a rumor that the game was going to be semi-open world. The information comes from imran khanwho points out that “At one point in development, Bayonetta 3 was considered to be a semi-open world game.”

These have been his words:

The design was going to take more advantage of Astral Chain than Nier Automata, but the idea was that one big hub world would send Bayonetta (or whoever) into different worlds that would be pretty open. Perhaps Super Mario 64 would be a good benchmark for this. There was a lot of work and experimentation on this idea, but it was falling apart pacing-wise and eventually Nintendo wanted them to scale back. I heard it didn’t perform particularly well on Switch hardware either.

What do you think about it? You have our complete coverage on the game here.

The premise of the game

  • This time around, Bayonetta will face off with man-made biological weapons called “homunculi.” He brings out Bayonetta’s more evil side with the new Demonic Mask ability, which allows her to channel the demon linked to his weapon for spectacular moves and combos.
  • He can also summon beloved demons like Gomorrah, Malphas, and Phantasmaraneae, unleashing their powers in combat or in colossal new showdowns where you directly control the action.
  • Multiple Bayonettas: Fight through the streets of Tokyo, the mountains of China, and beyond! During your journey, you will come across other Bayonettas, each one more fabulous than the last. You’ll also give the bad guys what they deserve as Viola, a sword-wielding apprentice witch who doesn’t mess around with the fickle demon Cheshire as her sidekick. Find out what fate has in store for Bayonetta, and if this arcane alliance will manage to save reality from destruction!

And these are her CARACTERISTICS:

  • Play as the bewitching Bayonetta in the third installment of this wild action game series.
  • Shoot, stomp, and dish out devastating blows across multiple locations, and meet other Bayonettas.
  • Channel the power of demons with the new Demonic Mask ability.
  • Unleash the infernal demons of Bayonetta in impressive battles.
  • Slash left and right as apprentice witch Viola, and harness the power of Cheshire, her feline demon.
