Bayonetta is a havoc-wreaking witch, who wields sweet weapons, such as pistols, whips, hammers, flamethrowers, and poison bows. But it's not just about brawn - it's also about style. Bayonetta is deadly but sleek, with moves such as Witch Time that slows down time itself, and the all-new Umbran Climax, a special magic attack that summons infernal demons to devastate enemies.

Such a great game 10/10. Bayonetta is such a lovable character and her fighting mechanics are amazing in the sequel! Love how this comes with the first game which also doesn't need to be played to start off on 2, also can't wait for the 3rd game to come out in 2020!
Bayonetta is back and this game is just as enjoyable as the first game, and even better than that is the fact that this includes a download for the first game so you can play through it on your switch to get back into the series. Great game, I am really enjoying it.
As a HUGE Devil May Cry fan, BAYONETTA MORE than lives up to the feel of that particular style of gameplay. The best part? This series was actually created by the same man who created the Devil May Cry series. Ain't that something? With that said, this is TRULY the spiritual successor to Devil May Cry, not just because I said so, but because the creator, Hideki Kamiya, said so himself. If you're a fan of DMC AND you own a Switch, you surely owe it to yourself to get this, 2 games for the price of one. Just wait 'til you get to BAYONETTA 2 and you will be truly blown by the experience.
These two games (Bayo 2 and the free download, Bayo 1) are some of my favorites I've ever played. The core of gameplay is the combat, which is fast, responsive, and amazingly satisfying when you get it right. It can be demanding at the start, but once you get the hang of dodging and stringing together combos with Bayonetta's trademark 4 guns, it's pure stylish excitement. There are 10 or so unique weapons in each game for you to choose from, each with its own moveset and strengths for you to customize your style. These are deep, challenging games that reward multiple playthroughs.
The story is like the biggest, wackiest action movie you've ever seen. Cutscenes look terrific and are bursting with humor and personality. Bayonetta's badass confidence and cheeky one-liners make her easy to love. The emotional core of the series is the friendship between two powerful, very cool women which is heartening to see. And thanks to some time-travel shenanigans, you can play either of the two games first--the plot will make sense and have a few surprises either way. Bayo 2 is slightly easier so I recommend starting there for newcomers.
Overall I adore these games and can't wait for more of Bayonetta's adventures in the third installment. (Not recommended for players who are sensitive to religious or sexual humor. I think it's all in good fun, but not everyone might see it that way.)
This is a great deal and perfecr for anyone who wants to start the series from the begining. Bayonetta 1 sets the stage and pace which is fast paced. Bayonetta 2 brings more of the same with even more intense comboa weapons and over the top action! Can't wait for the 3rd installment now!
I love this game. Its fast paced, heavily focused on action, and has a way of making your engrossed that many games don't bring to the table. If you want a good 12 to 20 hours romp with tons of fights, interesting locals, and impossible sequences then buy this. Bayonetta 1 will still reduce in price on the eshop if you get Bayo 2 digital download off Best Buy. Im up to 35 hours and working on post game content.
A:AnswerBayonetta 1 for Switch is only available digitally via Nintendo eShop. However, purchasing the physical copy of Bayonetta 2 gives you a download code for the first one as well, so you get two games for the price of one.
A:AnswerThere is competitive-cooperative play in Bayonetta 2, although it is more a side mode, so the meat of the game is single-player. Unlocking stages in co-op require playing the main story. I wouldn't feel comfortable with a young kid playing these games, as there is a pretty high level of violence (albeit more fantasy rather than realistic) and sexual innuendo (Bayonetta's clothes are removed more as better combos are done. The naughty bits are always covered, but it's not exactly something I'd let a 10 year old play.) At the same time, it's not like something like GTA V where I'd only feel comfy with adults playing it; watching some gameplay footage will give a good idea for those on the fence about whether it's appropriate for a kid/teenager or not.
The game is organized in a linear fashion; there are levels that you play in a set order, and in those levels are a number of acts (basically fights) that you do. When in levels, there are opportunities to go explore a little bit to do special challenge missions, find secret items, and find weapons that you can use to kill enemies with in addition to your original arsenal. Bayonetta is similar to character action games like Devil May Cry, God of War 1-3 on PS2/3, and Ninja Gaiden. Defining these games is a little tough, but the best way for me to describe them is as a single-player fighting game with some exploration added in. So, players fight enemies by punching and kicking and using combos like in fighting games, and further hone their skills by playing through and learning more about how the game works. It is a lot of fun, and Bayonetta actually does a good job of appealing to people who are not very good at games to those who have a great deal of experience in games, not only with low and high difficulty levels, but also by rewarding those who wish to get better across multiple playthroughs of the game with additional weapons and powers. There are even touch screen controls if people would like to play the game without using buttons (although my preferred way of playing is with buttons).
A:AnswerAs long as it is a new copy and it features the includes Bayonetta 1 info graphic in the top corner, then you're good. You never know how long Nintendo will continue to publish something like this, though.
