Bayonetta 3 Limited Edition, Bayonetta 1 Physical Release Detailed

Bayonetta 3 limited edition

Bayonetta 3 is coming in late October 2022, finally ending the years-long wait endured by fans of the Umbra Witch. Nintendo’s set to take advantage, of course, by offering a Bayonetta 3 limited edition package filled with goodies. Formally known as the “Trinity Masquerade Edition” of the game, the Bayonetta 3 limited edition package will be sold at select retailers and the My Nintendo Store.

Check out a preview of the pack below.

The Bayonetta 3 Trinity Masquerade Edition comes with the game in a standard-size Switch cartridge case. It also includes a 200-page art book and three special game case art inserts. Each art insert corresponds to one of the Bayonetta series titles, and the three combine to form a single panoramic work. A large box decorated with the Bayonetta 3 box art holds the goods.

You might be wondering why Nintendo would include box art for Bayonetta 1 in the package when the Switch version of Bayonetta was a digital-only release. Wonder no more, for Nintendo has also confirmed that there will be a separate physical release of Bayonetta on September 30, 2022.

Previously, the Switch port of the first Bayonetta game was download-only. Copies were included as codes with certain physical editions of Bayonetta 2 on Switch or sold via the Nintendo eShop. With a physical edition of the trilogy available, players can opt to use the custom art inserts on all three copies if they choose.

Bayonetta 3 and its limited edition go on sale on October 28, 2022. The physical release of Bayonetta is set for September 30, 2022. Bayonetta 2 is available physically and digitally on Switch.
