Nintendo revealed Bayonetta 3 is currently in development exclusively for the Nintendo Switch last month during The Game Awards. The announcement did not come with a release date or any further details on the upcoming game.
A Reddit user has confirmed with site moderators that they have a ‘reliable source’ telling them that Bayonetta 3 will be releasing this year. It is possible that the game might even see a summer release if there are no troubles with development.
The release date for Bayonetta 3 will likely be revealed during the rumored upcoming Nintendo Direct. Lending some credence to this Bayonetta 3 focused rumor, a previous rumor for the upcoming direct detailed that a Bayonetta 3 trailer would be revealed.
Bayonetta 1 and 2 are set to release on the Nintendo Switch on February 16th, 2018.
