In a coffin submerged at the bottom of a murky lake, a witch is reborn. Discover or relive the epic Bayonetta, available as part of the Bayonetta 2 Special Edition and also as a download from Nintendo eShop on Wii U.

Originally released in 2010, the unforgettable first chapter of the Bayonetta saga introduced the world to "climax action", an explosive blend of dynamic action and saucy style. Armed with a gun in each hand and one on each foot, Bayonetta destroys her opponents with combo attacks that are as beautiful as they are brutal. Dodge enemy attacks with perfect timing to activate Witch Time, leaving your slowed-down opponents defenceless against your barrage of kicks, blows and bullets, then finish them off with a devastating Torture Attack. No angel will stand in Bayonetta’s way.

After remembering her name and her ability to summon demons, Bayonetta travels through the remote European city of Vigrid while staving off the armies of Paradiso and uncovering the truth of her long-lost past. As Bayonetta dispatches ever more powerful angels, meet unforgettable characters like the famed Demon-smith Rodin, information sniffer Enzo and many more.

Enhancements to the original game include the addition of several Nintendo-themed costumes for Bayonetta – whether donning a memorable green tunic or rolling around dropping bombs like a famous bounty hunter, the Umbra Witch has never looked better. And with touch controls on the Wii U GamePad and off-TV play for the whole adventure, you can get closer to Bayonetta than ever before.

There are two ways to get the game: as a Game Disc included with the Bayonetta 2 Special Edition, or as a standalone download from Nintendo eShop. And if you purchase Bayonetta or Bayonetta 2 from Nintendo eShop, you can get a discount on the other title – perfect if you prefer to download your games.

Packed with a cast of unforgettable characters, an epic story, and both English and Japanese voice acting for the first time, Bayonetta is a truly bewitching experience.

  • Dress Bayonetta in cosplay costumes based on Nintendo heroes and heroines
  • Get closer to the action than ever with touch controls and off-TV play
  • Available as part of the Bayonetta 2 Special Edition, or as a standalone download from Nintendo eShop
