In the Q3 FY 2023 financial earnings report, Nintendo has finally announced how many copies Bayonetta 3 has sold! The title has sold over 1 million copies since it launched on October 28, 2022.
This is a bit lower than most were probably expecting, however, it has already matched the numbers of Bayonetta 2 on Nintendo Switch, with that title selling through 1.04 million copies in its lifetime.
The title was developed by PlatinumGames, who is known for their work on the Bayonetta series, NieR: Automata, and Metal Gear Rising, which is set to have a 10th anniversary special later this month.
A description of the title is available below:
The witch is back and more powerful than ever!
Bayonetta struts through multiple locations in an all-new, over-the-top climax action game. Sporting a wicked new ensemble and somehow familiar pigtails, the titular Umbra Witch must face a mysterious evil using her signature guns and time-slowing Witch Time ability. This time, invading manmade bioweapons called Homunculi find themselves in Bayonetta’s crosshairs.
Get ready for a devilishly good time
Tap into Bayonetta’s naughtier side with Demon Masquerade, a new ability that channels the demon linked to her weapon allowing for some exciting action options, not to mention some hair-raising combos. She can also summon her demonic darlings like Gomorrah, Malphas, and Phantasmaraneae during battle, unleashing their demonic powers in the heat of combat and in new, larger-than life battles where you directly control the action.
A bounty of Bayonettas
Fight your way through the streets of Tokyo, the mountains of China, and many other locales! Along the way you’ll meet a virtual coven of Bayonettas, each more fabulous than the last. You’ll also slash and slay as Viola, a feisty witch in training who fights with a sword and a capricious companion, the demon Cheshire. Find out what fate awaits Bayonetta, and if this arcane alliance can really save reality!
