Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Apr 262017

The April 11 Bayonetta announcement turned out to be a sudden release of the first game for PC (which itself seems to be teasing Vanquish on PC next).

But now fans have new reason to hope for a Bayonetta 3 announcement.

PlatinumGames recently updated its Japanese blog with a new post about English lessons led by Bayonetta.

Bayonetta English lessons are as absurd as you might expect, but what caught people’s attention is that the blog post is split into three lessons, each of which uses video clips of Bayonetta saying an English line that is looped three times.

Three lessons? Three loops?

It might feel like a Half-Life 3 conspiracy, but we can’t help but hope this is a hint of Bayonetta 3. Of course, repetition fits the theme of it being a lesson, but why is PlatinumGames posting Bayonetta English lessons on their blog in the first place?

If Bayonetta 3 does exist, everyone’s next question is whether it will be an exclusive or a multiplatform title.

This has once again ignited claims that it was a “mistake” to put Bayonetta 2 on the Wii U, even though the options were that or no Bayonetta 2 at all. If you want a multiplatform Bayonetta 2, you better hope another publisher has realized the game could be profitable.

But whether it’s a multiplatform game, a Switch-exclusive, or something else, maybe more Bayonetta isn’t a pipe dream for this E3.

Do you think this is a tease for Bayonetta 3, or is it just a coincidence?

(Today is Alien Day, so I wanted to address the rumors of an Alien Isolation sequel, but apparently those rumors have already been declared false.)

  1. I think learning is done in Rule of 3.
