Bayonetta 2 is a classic, and one of the finest, most wonderfully insane action games ever made.

The core of Bayonetta remains as solid and frustrating as it was when it first released. It lacks the polish, semi-coherent story, and rich color palette of its superior sequel, sure, but it's so masterfully designed and brazen in its direction that it's still a must play for every action game fanatic.

Bayonetta 1 & 2 are the perfect choice if you have not had the chance to play them previously. Its style fits perfectly with the Nintendo Switch controls and the quality of both games is still amazing.

While these might boil down to being relatively straightforward ports from Wii U to Switch, that doesn't make them any less essential for fans of the action game genre and Platinum Games' work… unless you've already played them both on Wii U. Either way, with Bayonetta 3 in the works, the Switch is now the witch's new home.

A classic that now is becoming portable without losing anything on its way. Bayonetta 2 is still an essential game despite the time since its launch on Wii U. This version may not provide excessive improvements or novelties, but if you didn't play at the time, you are facing the perfect opportunity to do so.

Bayonetta on the Switch is a fantastic port for handheld mode but there's not much improved for TV gamers aside from load times. Bayonetta 2 remains one of Platinum's best games, and is a treat on Switch just as it was on Wii U.

Two amazing action games make their way to the Nintendo Switch - and they're just as good as before. However, we really wish there was some kind of graphical improvements compared to the Wii U versions, even though the improved framerate in docked mode is worth a lot.

[Bayonneta] can be appreciated wherever you want, with a solid and granitic 60 fps, and a better visual experience on the go. The remastered version of Bayonetta 2 is a moral imperative for every owner of the Nintendo Switch who didn't play the most stylish and crazy action series of all time.

There's a good reason action game fans will be looking to buy Bayonetta 1 for the fourth time and Bayonetta 2 for the second time. To create a series that includes an incredibly deep combat system, an absolutely insane story with the characters, music and gameplay to match the insanity, all while managing to satisfy both the casual and hardcore crowd is certainly no easy task. Bayonetta 1 & 2 rank as two of the best action games of all time, and now you can play them on the go. What's not to love?

Bayonetta deservedly made a real sensation in the world of action games. An insanely charismatic heroine, a fascinating gameplay with spectacular cutscenes, energetic battles, an interesting story with jokes, brutal fights with bosses really wowed us. Now two these amazing games available on Switch. And we can't to wait to play Bayonetta 3.

When the Witch of Umbra decides to dance under the pale light of the full moon, we will extend her hand to dance with her. And now, with the hybrid version of Kyoto, we can stand by it at any time, always ready to brandish our weapons and torture the divine army. On Switch, bayonetta's two chapters find their ideal refuge, adapting appropriately to the pace of portability and maintaining considerable fluidity during the action.

Cereza continues to age well as "Bayonetta 1 + 2: Switch Collection" brings Platinum's high-octane franchise to Nintendo's latest system for new players and series fans alike. Folks who already own both games might not have much reason to get it unless they want to experience the Bayonetta series again on the go. For action game lovers who never played either game before, getting this is pretty much a no-brainer. Now bring on Bayonetta 3.
