Nintendo's Bill Trinen: Bayonetta 3 Coming 'Sooner Than Anticipated' - News

Nintendo of America’s senior product marketing manager Bill Trinen speaking on the Nintendo Power podcast revealed Bayonetta 3 is coming "sooner than anticipated." 

"This is what I think is so great about the partnership between Nintendo and Platinum Games," said Trinen. "Because to me, I look at [Astral Chain] and I see the kind of intense action game that historically you haven’t seen a lot of on Nintendo platforms.

"With this collaboration with Platinum Games, being able to bring stuff like that… and knowing that they mentioned, of course, Bayonetta 3, [which is] still in the works, it really helps to round out the library overall of what’s available on Switch.

"And of course, that’s another game that’s maybe coming a little bit sooner than people anticipated, later this year."

Bayonetta 3 is coming exclusively to the Nintendo Switch.

I'll keep my expectations in check but, goddang, Nintendo has just been on a roll with announcements this year! If Bayonetta 3 came out this year, I don't think there would be *any* argument over this being the best year in Switch's library ... if there is still any now, that is. Also, some of this praise for Platinum and their relationship sounds like acquisition talk. : )

It is way too early in the year to call this the best year in switch's history. Will need to see if all of the announced games actually a launch this year.

I'm not sure if Nintendos offerings are ultra amazing right now.... but when compared to what the competition has coming this year, after seeing Crackdown 3 stumble at the starting blocks and fall on its face it's down to Sony to put up competition in the console space and so far their major news is that they're not doing E3 this year.

Sure those systems will have EA sports titles and Call of Duty which the Switch will likely miss out on... but I doubt there is many on here that would suggest a systems lineup is made or broken depending on a yearly cod update or the 60th version of Fifa Ultimate Casino front edition.

Something like that, but I still think it was Regginator that fired him (just because he dropped some water on his head and stopped him).

Possible late 2019 release, or early 2020.
