There are already plenty of Nintendo Switch games with female characters and Bayonetta 3 will be a welcome addition to the list.

Developer PlatinumGames and Nintendo have announced Bayonetta 3 for the Nintendo Switch alongside a re-release of Bayonetta 1 and 2 on Nintendo's new hybrid platform. To my mind, it's one of the best action games ever made, and I say that as someone who skipped the original Bayonetta the first time around.

The critically acclaimed Bayonetta 2 game, originally a Wii U exclusive, will be launching for Nintendo Switch on February 16.

Of course, being a Nintendo IP now that means Bayonetta 3 will be a Switch exclusive, not that Switch owners will complain about that.

Kimery has also been charged with obstruction of justice, second-degree burglary, larceny and possession of stolen property. Daniel Bober, investigator Vincent Hill, syndicated radio talk host Dave Mack, and child advocate lawyer Ashley Willcott.

Europe is getting a similar package, but it appears the original Bayonetta won't be included physically, but as a download from the Nintendo eShop. Players can also take part in online co-op. If you missed out on your chance to shoot up all manner of witchess, demons, and other mystical beings before, you can pick up the Bayonetta collection on the Nintendo Switch starting February 16, 2018. Reggie also dropped the news that Bayonetta 3 is in development exclusively for the Nintendo Switch and we got a brief trailer.

How Much Does Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 Cost on Switch? Nintendo has also promised a Bayonetta 2 physical copy while the first game will only be available digitally.

That wasn't the only surprise announcement we got last night though.
