“This one, no one saw it coming“, as the other would say. Indeed, if a few leaks took place before the Game Awards 2022 were held, on the other hand, no insider had predicted the announcement of Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon. As we can easily guess, it will be a prequel which will therefore return to Bayonetta’s past before she became the witch we know. But unlike the beat’em up approach to which the series has accustomed us since its advent in 2009, this time it will be an adventure game taking place in the forbidden forest of Avalon. Accompanied by her demon Cheshire, she decided to go in search of a mysterious power supposed to save her mother.
According to what we are told, Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon put the main emphasis on cooperation, Bayonetta (with the left Joy-Con) and her sidekick (with the right Joy-Con) having to collaborate to fight the enemies and solve the puzzles. We let you watch the first trailer quietly, specifying that the release of the game is already scheduled for March 17, 2023, the same day as a certain Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
