Bayonetta 1 and 2 Coming to Nintendo Switch on February 16, 2018

Nintendo has announced both the original Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 are heading to the Nintendo Switch.

Both games are hitting the hybrid console on February 16th of next year, with the actual package including Bayonetta 2 on a cartridge, and a download code for the original Bayonetta. Both games can naturally be purchased separately, via the eShop.

The new Switch versions of the games include some new features:

  • Local wireless cooperative play – The previously online-only coop Tag Climax is going local! Team up with a friend to take it on – online or off.
  • Amiibo support – Bayonetta 2 for Nintendo Switch will support amiibo, including the Bayonetta amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series.
  • Video capture support – Record gameplay videos, starting up to thirty seconds before you press the capture button. Share videos from your Switch’s Album to Facebook and Twitter to show the world your skills!

Featured above, you can view new trailer for the new Switch release of both games. Here’s a look at the western box art:

A Japan-only Nintendo Switch hardware bundle was also announced, it includes both original Bayonetta games in a steelbook case, 22 art cards, and three sticker sheets.
