Bayonetta was released 10 years ago, on October 29th, 2009. Thanks to the continual support of fans over the years, the series has flourished on a variety of platforms and is still going strong a decade later. For this, we at PlatinumGames are extremely grateful.
The world of Bayonetta will continue to grow, and we’ll do our part to help it not only by working on the games, but by giving our seal of approval to cool merchandise and collaborations!
To that effect, we’d like to introduce some Bayonetta-related projects that are currently underway. There’s a lot of exclusive first looks here, so make sure you take it all in!!
It seems most fitting to start with a game…
It’s official! Bayonetta will be making an appearance in the iOS/Android game VALKYRIE ANATOMIA-THE ORIGIN!
Lenneth and Bayonetta team up!!!
An infernal rumbling heralds…
A ferocious demon! Bayonetta’s powers remain strong!!

You’ll have to wait for more information from Square Enix on just what role Bayonetta will play in this event, but remember that you heard about it here first! But don’t worry, everyone at Square Enix is fine with that… right? At any rate, with two pros at guiding souls working together, it’s going to be a hell of a good time!
*The Bayonetta event will only take place in the Japanese version of the game.
The story is being overseen by Bayonetta director Hideki Kamiya!

Next up is information about a new entry in the Nendoroid series of chibi anime and game characters made by Good Smile Company. That’s right–it’s Bayonetta!
