When Will Bayonetta 3 Come Out? Release Date of Bayonetta 3 Revealed

Bayonetta 3 will be available on the Nintendo Store eShop immediately as a preorder after the Nintendo Direct stream. The current price is set at $59.99, and buying it now allows you to pre-load the game to your Nintendo Switch and launch it on the official release date as soon as it is unlocked for play. Getting a head start is always a good thing when you are rushing to be one of the first people playing a new video game title as servers can often be slower when everyone’s trying to download it at once.

You can also preorder a physical copy at most popular retailers, including GameStop and Amazon, if you prefer that over a digital download.

The official release date for Bayonetta 3 is October 28th, 2022, so it is just a month and a half from now. The popular hack-and-slash sequel is coming out exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
