The Nintendo of Europe Twitter account offered another look at the new Bayonetta spin-off. A video clip shows off a cutscene in which Cereza meets the demon Cheshire for the first time in Bayonetta Origins. It also explains why the demon looks like the stuffed animal her mother made her and offers a look at how the story is conveyed throughout the game.
The video is set in the Avalon Forest. In Bayonetta Origins, Cereza heads off there after a dream of a young boy telling her she can find the power to save her mother inside. Once there, she ends up summoning the demon that becomes Cheshire. They end up inhabiting the body of the stuffed cat her mom made for her.
In this Bayonetta Origins cutscene, we see Cereza and Cheshire properly introducing themselves to each other. The demon that will become known as Cheshire noted that it didn’t have a name prior to that. Cereza then asks if she call them by the same name as her toy. The interaction sets the stage for their relationship as they follow the white wolf deeper into the forest.
