Rocking the oujo ringlets this time. The new Demon Slave ability looks neat, like the Legion from Astral Chain or V's familiars in DMC 5 on steroids. And it looks like we got another Vergil-type character. Really looking forward to this

Microsoft execs after seeing the end of the trailer: "What on Earth is this!?"

Platinum: "It's the game you cancelled, but even better."

Still so mad at the tease of Astral Chain. I so thought that was the game they were announcing lol.

A lot of people seem happy with this reveal, and maybe it is because I never played 2, but this just feels off. Bayonetta's style just seems kind of generic and not at all like she was from the first game.

Weird flex especially when Bayonetta isn’t even a new game.

Nice to see some gameplay. I was a bit concerned when it starts out with "not actual gameplay" in the the trailer since it wouldn't have inspired confidence for a game that for years has been in a status of Platinum saying they are working on it and have nothing more to add.

Bayonetta's new hairdo is an interesting call back to the first game. It also looks like the player might control the summons a fair amount, instead of button mashing at a prompt, so it seems like they are going to try some new mechanics or integrating mechanics from Astral Chain into it.

looks kinda... meh? I know switch is a very weak piece of hardware, but I feel like the art style isn't helping either, I guess I would've expected more color instead of the same muted gray of the ps3 era when Bayonetta debuted, also idk if this character is Bayonetta or another, but her design is a step down from the original Bayonetta
