RUMOR: Bayonetta 3 Release Date Could Be Summer 2018

Bayonetta 3 Release Date may have been revealed by a member of the leak group that has been notoroious for a few industry leaks in the past, albeit this one is a bit bold, only time will tell.

Bayonetta was a massive succcess on the PS3 and Xbox 360 when it launched in 2009, but when Bayonetta 2 got a WiiU exclusive release many fans were puzzled and the truth was later revealed that Nintendo made it possibe for everyone’s favorite witch to continue her adventure.

A few weeks ago, Bayonetta 1 and 2 for the Switch were announced, with Bayonetta 2 being a physical release and Bayonetta 1 being a download code in the latter, while Bayonetta 3 was also confirmed to be coming to the Nintendo Switch, the company was hush on any mention of a release date or any further detail outside of a very ominous reveal trailer.

This is where redditor _darth_solo chimes in and claims that Bayonetta 3 can release as early as Summer 2018

I cannot personally reveal my source, but I have it on good authority from a reliable source that Bayonetta 3 will be released this year, maybe this summer. It will not be released later than 2018 barring a disaster.

I have confirmed my sources with the mods, u/FlapSnapple

gave me the go ahead for this, so they can vouch for it. I’m sorry but I can’t say much more other than watch out for the Nintendo Direct because Bayonetta 3 will be one of those placeholder games that Nintendo is preparing to release. This direct may be Nintendo’s E3 if what we’ve heard is true.

Many claiming Pokemon or Animal Crossing are literally piggybacking off of one person who has a track record but has only said Animal Crossing is probably coming this year, or rather “There is some kind of new Animal Crossing that they hope to release next year too.” :

Don’t trust Sellars, he is just piggybacking on this guy for his little moment of fame. Metroid will probably be 2019 with a small tease of footage.

You can see in his thread on the subreddit /r/nintendoswitch, and to help add to the credibility, we have a moderator of the sub who states there is adequate information provided to confirm some truth to the claim.

Considering that the creator also has links with u/FlapSnapple, a leaker who is renowned for leaking the Fighter Pack 3 for Injustice 2 and more recently, Soul Calibur VI. I would still recommend taking this news with some grain of salt.
