Bayonetta 1 and 2 Heading to Switch + News of Bayonetta 3!

Announced at the Game Awards, two of my favourite games of all time are heading to the Nintendo switch.  For those of you who have never played these titles, think of them as a third person action game, akin slightly to Devil May Cry, but with the visuals ramped up from 10 to 12.5.  The stylish and charismatic protagonist is a witch who is fighting all the realms of Heaven, featuring silky smooth controls and a move-set which is constantly upgrading throughout the games, these are thrilling and replayable game experiences which border on being legendary.
