Bayonetta 3’s director tales about the new demonic kaiju ability

bayonetta 3

One of the biggest games shown during Thursday’s Nintendo Direct presentation was the full unveiling of Bayonetta 3 which is being developed by the talented team at Platinum Games. Talking in a recent interview with IGN, Bayonetta 3’s director Yusuke Miyata, talked a little about the newly unveiled Kaiju Ability. This intriguing new mode allows Bayonetta to take control of demonic creatures and fight a standoff in kaiju-like battles. Here’s what Mr. Miyata had to say about the new feature coming to Bayonetta 3 when it launches next year exclusively on Nintendo Switch.

“Unlike the Climax Summons of previous games that automatically defeated enemies and returned to Inferno, this mechanic lets players control demons during gameplay and unleash a host of intuitive actions Each demon’s abilities vary and the kinds of abilities that are advantageous in a certain situation can change at any time. Just how many are there? What else can you do? Well, there’s a lot more I’d like to tell you, but I have to stop here for now. However, there’s a lot of info hidden in the trailer that I didn’t go into here, so please consider watching it again until the next announcement.”

  1. I know it’s not going to happen, but it would be nice if we get a future Smash Bros update with a new skin option for Bayonetta’s 3rd design.

    1. I know, right? They distribute Mii Costumes that I will never buy, but give me some DLC alternate costumes for some characters (like Shulk’s new attire from Future Connected) and you can have my money.

      1. Yeah, the mii costumes are nice I guess, but I’ll never use them. I’ve always wanted to use samus’s fusion Suit, ped suit, light suit, etc but all she gets is color swaps. It’d be sick to use dark mewtwo’s design from Pokken or his mecha suit from the og pokemon show. Instant buy from me

      2. Maybe one day Nintendo will see that DLC alt outfits are a big thing for people & make them for their games. Unlike EA, Koei, etc, I doubt they’d make hundreds of dollars worth of these since Ninty is all about being affordable.

    2. I mean, Cloud got a new Final Smash for his Advent Children outfit when Sephiroth dropped so I suppose it’s not COMPLETELY outside the realm of possibility. Though I suppose Sakurai would likely want to keep palette options universally at 8…
      Ah well, one can dream. At least Smash 5 will practically be a shoe-in for it.
