In response to a Peing question regarding Bayonetta 4, Hideki Kamiya posted on Twitter that an unexpected twist is in store. In a reply, he adds that he had thought it wouldn’t be unexpected. However, it seemed that many people did not properly understand the ending of Bayonetta 3.

Editor’s Note: Due to the nature of this article, it will discuss spoilers for Bayonetta 3.

Kamiya explained that he does not want fans to accuse him of adding things later. So he will say it now that if you got the ending of Bayonetta 3, then what will happen in Bayonetta 4 will not be a surprise. He already laid the groundwork for Bayonetta 4 with Bayonetta 3. It is unclear what he is referring to.

The Bayonetta 3 ending ended up introducing multiple different possibilities. It resulted in different Bayonettas appearing across the three games, rather than one Bayonetta who develops throughout the series. There is also the issue of Viola taking up the mantle of Bayonetta. The game ends with the implication that the series will focus on her now.

Kamiya didn’t discuss a possible future. The plot of Bayonetta 3 involved multiple Bayonettas. Kamiya stated before that PlatinumGames may need nine games to fully tell the story of Bayonetta.

Bayonetta 3 is readily available on the Nintendo Switch. You can read our review of it here.
