Bayonetta Origins Discounted To Just $30, Best Price Yet

The new Bayonetta spin-off is available for only $30 right now.


Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon released just earlier this year, and although Nintendo-published games often take a while to be discounted, you can already get it for half price. Bayonetta Origins is on sale for only $30 right now at Woot--a great price for a game we awarded a 9/10.

Bayonetta Origins is quite the departure from the mainline series. You play as two characters, Cereza and Cheshire, simultaneously as you navigate a colorful world from an isometric perspective. There's still action combat, but Bayonetta Origins is more puzzle- and narrative-focused.

Despite big changes in style and tone, Bayonetta Origins is more than worthy of its name. As noted above, it earned a 9/10 in our Bayonetta Origins review.

"Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and The Lost Demon is a testament to thinking outside the box," critic Jessica Howard wrote. "While I don't suspect Platinum Games will pivot to this new style of gameplay and storytelling in future Bayonetta games in the same way Breath of the Wild or God of War (2018) shifted the direction of their respective franchises, I cannot help but be thankful that the studio trusted the vision of its team enough to create this experience. Though with how fantastic every aspect of the game is, I understand why the developer did."

As a prequel, you can enjoy Bayonetta Origins even if you haven't played the other three games in the franchise. That said, we'd highly recommend playing all three of them. Bayonetta 3, which released last fall, is discounted to $48 at Amazon.
