Bayonetta 3 is a Nintendo Switch exclusive video game until Nintendo says otherwise. As in the second part, this new episode of the PlatinumGames saga is published and financed by Nintendo, so the chances of seeing the title on platforms other than the big N are very remote. Hideki Kamiya, one of the heads of the saga, this time acts as a supervisor of the story and his world (Yusuke Miyata is the director), he has commented on this circumstance on Twitter to dispel doubts. Product decisions are up to Nintendo.
“All decisions about the final product are up to Nintendo”
As with Bayonetta 2, we are developing Bayonetta 3 with funding from Nintendo. We only participate in development. All final product decisions are up to NintendoKamiya comments. Therefore, those who are interested in seeing Bayonet 3 on PS5 or Xbox should ask Nintendo, not PlatinumGames, because they cannot intervene in that decision.
“If Nintendo asks us to port the game to PS5, we may do so,” he clarifies in any case. In a consecutive message from the creative himself, he gives his opinion on this possibility; that although it is very small, he does not qualify it as impossible. “I guess the probability of Bayonetta 2 and 3 coming to PS5 and Xbox is not impossible, it is Nintendo’s decision. By that same logic, it is not impossible for games like Mario and Zelda to appear on PS5 or whatever, “he rightly comments.
Bayonetta 3 will arrive exclusively for Nintendo Switch in 2022
With the personality that characterizes him, Hideki Kamiya ends his reasoning with a comment that many will be able to read between the lines, taking into account the precedents (like that of Bayonetta 2): “So good luck sending passionate pleas to Nintendo trying to make it happen. … If I was you, I’d just buy myself a Switch”.
Bayonetta 3 hitting stores exclusively for Nintendo Switch sometime next year 2022.
