Bayonetta 3 Story
Even though PlatinumGames have not given away many details about the storyline of the upcoming game Byanetta 3, there are a few elements of the story that are revealed. According to the official website of Bayonetta 3, the game is supposed to have the backdrop of the city of Tokyo.
Mysterious creatures, which are neither angels nor demons, attack the streets of the Shibuya area of Tokyo. It is where Bayonetta makes her graceful appearance. The description ends with two questions about why Bayonetta is in Tokyo and also what is the extent of the invasion by the new enemy.
The first installment of the game Bayonetta dealt with the story of a witch who has revived from the bottom of a lake twenty years ago. She wakes up with no information about her past and her origin. Bayonetta realizes the truth about her past and takes on the villains with the help of Jeanne, who is also an Umbra witch.
While the first installment established the friendship of the two characters Bayonetta and Jeanne, the second installment followed the journey of Bayonetta when she travels to the mountains to find the Gates of Hell to save her friend Jeanne.
With Hideki Kamiya as the executive director, the game takes its share from his previous works like the Devil May Cry series. The game is also a hack and slash where the angels known as Lumen Sages engage in a fight with the Umbra Witches.
The title character of the game Bayonetta is an Umbra witch who fights evil forces to save the world. The game received a sequel, Bayonetta 2 in the year 2014. This was a more enhanced version of the first story which included more new mythological characters.
The game was well appreciated for its creative art direction and also the development of rich characters. The added elements gave the game a huge fan base and ever since the announcement of the third part, fans had been eagerly waiting to see the changes and updates that will be put into Bayonetta 3.
