Sega Launches New Teaser Site, Possibly Related To Bayonetta

What are you hoping to see?

40 Comments

Sega appears to be teasing something. The developer and publisher has launched a new teaser site that features a countdown clock that ends in seven days, three hours, and five minutes, as of this writing.

People on Reddit believe the teaser may be related to the Bayonetta series, as the character's foot can be seen in the dimly lit background on the teaser page.

No Caption Provided

The header for the teaser site only says, "Coming Soon."

On April Fool's Day (April 1), Sega released an 8-bit version of Bayonetta for free on Steam; you can grab the game right here.

The last entry in the mainline Bayonetta series was 2014's Bayonetta 2, which was exclusive to the Wii U. Both entries in the franchise have been made by Japanese studio PlatinumGames. The studio's new RPG Scalebound was recently canceled.

Last year at E3, designer Hideki Kamiya said he has been thinking "a lot" about Bayonetta 3.

"We've talked a lot about it internally at the company and I've written some outlines for what the game would be. And I feel really confident it would be cool if we got the chance to make it," he said.

What are you hoping to see Sega's countdown clock reveal? Let us know in the comments below!

My goodness !!!! Bayonetta 3 should be release in all platforms such as xb1 ps4 pc wii u nin switch .. Please don't make it a Nintendo exclusive like the 2nd one .... Well if that Happens ..... lemme tell you Now .... I F***CKING HATE YOU NINTENDO !!!!! Wish they release the Bayonetta 2 on PC too .... i'll be worth a shot SEGA !!! cause i do believe that many fans wants to play it too but the problem is that they don't own a Wii U Console (Like me oh! Poor Me)

Well....considering the darkened image, it is obviously a closeup of Bayonetta's foot and gun. I did an image search and i can confidently say it definitely is not her Bayonetta 2 gun. Looking at the gun design and shoe strap, it all pretty much looks like her first costume. The only thing throwing this off is it looks like there are three studs in the gun's handle but neither of the previous games' guns had that. So it may be a totally new design that just looks very similar to the first.

After thinking more on this, i think its obvious this teaser's purpose is to announce Bayonetta 3. Anything less would be pretty lame and not worth making a teaser site for it. I brought up the three studs in the gun handle and i think that is a clue for this being about the third game. Obviously they will have a completely new design for her but they wont want to use that in the teaser image because it'll give it away too easily.

Multi-platform. Multi-platform. I missed out on Bayonetta 2 because it was Wii U exclusive.

I seriously hope it's Bayonetta 3 with a Bayonetta 2 port for current gen systems, kind of like how they did Bayonetta 2 for the Wii U(seless). Bayonetta 1 is still one of my all-time favorite games and I'd reeeeeeally love to see more from this franchise on mainstream consoles. Heck, I'd even settle for just a port of Bayonetta 2 on PS4 at this point.

And speaking of Platinum Games, if you haven't played their severely underrated gem 'Vanquish', and still have a PS3 or XB1, do yourself a favor and go pick it up on tha cheap and start experiencing a game that will make you ask yourself why you didn't play it sooner......

@DETfaninATL: B2 is a second party game (I think). I can't see it going anywhere else.

@DETfaninATL: I doubt Bayonetta 2 will ever come to PS4, Nintendo helped finance the game, it would be like expecting Street Fighter V to come to another console. Maybe Platinum will make a Switch version of Bayonetta 2 but I wouldn't hold my breath for anything else.

SEGA is really getting their crap together. The PC game, 'Total War - Warhammer' is just fantastic. If there ever a time to get back into the console business it would be now.

Sadly, I think this will be the last generation of consoles, as they are just PCs now. Still, it would be awesome to see a new SEGA system. I would soooooo buy a new SEGA Master Genesis!

@Jag-T1000: True, but if you are nintendo, would you really want to compare a Switch version to PS4? The Switch is a mobile system, it cannot compete with the power of PS4 and xb0ne.

Given that they only released 8-bit Bayonetta on PC and it was based on designs from the first game I'd say it's a PC port of the first game, but who knows.

If there's anything Bayonetta happening, it's likely just the Wii U game coming to the Switch.

Bayonetta 2 port for Switch. Possibly Bayonetta 3, but I figure they'll want to sell a few more copies of Bayonetta 2 first. Heck, maybe they'll do what they did with 2 and include Bayonetta 2 with Bayonetta 3.

Please be Bayonetta 3. Don't even care which platform. I bought a Wii U for Bayonetta 2 -- I'd buy a Scorpio for Bayonetta 3.

Bayonetta 1 remaster or Bayo 3. Also to the people saying Bayo 2 on other plattforms? Not likely Nintendo owns that game,not the IP the game.

I just hope it's not Bayonetta 3 for Switch only. I don't think Bayo 2 can ever even come to other consoles, can it? I mean, I have it for WiiU but I'd love to see a 1 & 2 collection for PS4.

@djbusterwolf: it's timed, but probably like 5 years so not until 2019 or so. It might even be 10 years.

@fanboyman: Every licence ever is timed. It's licenced by nintendo which means it's timed.

Now how long i got no clue. But 5 or 10 years are good guesses.

Bayonetta 3 for Switch would be simply awesome.

But I'll take 1 on PC as well.

I thought it was stupid when Scalebound got cancelled, but if they now have to finally release Bayonetta on PC to make some extra cash then I guess it's all for the best.

I was discussing this a couple weeks ago with a friend but I wouldn't be surprised if they announce Bayonetta 3 for the Switch or even other consoles/platforms
