Bayonetta is getting a fairytale prequel next year

The Bayonetta series is getting a prequel named Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon.

The game will introduce Cereza before she becomes the titular witch.

Fittingly, it has a childlike, fairytale visual style and will release on Switch on 17th March 2023.

Cereza will explore a mystical forest along with her beloved Cheshire cat who will fight on her behalf as she solves puzzles.

And all that to save her beloved mother.

It’s certainly a change of style from the main series and its over the top, somewhat sexualised image.

If you’re keen to give it a go, Bayonetta 3 players can access a playable teaser by purchasing the Old Picture Book at Rodin’s shop and unlocking it with three keys.

Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon is available to pre-order now.
