    It all adds up to one of the must-have games on the Switch, alongside Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Skyrim. Still need a reason to buy a Switch? You’re all out of them.

    Bayonetta herself is one of the sassiest characters in gaming and the combat is simply better than any hack and slash action game that I've ever played (and still is to this day). The game is only made better by the enhanced performance and portability provided by the Nintendo Switch and it's one that every Switch owner should have in their collection.

    The original Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 are still magnificent these days, and the Nintendo Switch version succeeds in allowing you to re-experience them on the latest console, even in a portable way. If you are a fan of action games but haven't tried the original version before, don't hesitate to buy the bundle. They might be the greatest action games until the releases of God of War or Bayonetta 3.

    Bayonetta 1+2 are spectacular entries in the hack-and-slash genre, and playing them on the go is a surreal experience that vastly diversifies the Switch's library. Rewarding skillful play with gorgeous, satisfying action while being thematically engrossing, these games are a breath of fresh air, even today.

    Bayonetta & Bayonetta 2 are a perfect witch’s brew of fun and functionality on the Switch.

    Though the first game’s starting to show its age as far as visuals go, the relentless action remains timeless. Fast, frantic and frivolously fun, it’s still worth playing. The sequel, however, improves upon everything; deliver a more focused, more nuanced and more refined. It’s a glorious masterclass in design and flow.

    Put simply, if you're a fan of the series, Bayonetta 1 & 2 are essential on the Nintendo Switch, especially if, like me, you only plan to play them in handheld mode. It's undeniably disappointing that they're less attractive in docked mode, but nevertheless they're still wildly enjoyable and engaging, just not as sharp as you'd probably expect.

    Maravilloso Juego que se re edita para nintendo switch, a fin de recibir el reconocimiento necesario de esta obra maestra de la acción, que noMaravilloso Juego que se re edita para nintendo switch, a fin de recibir el reconocimiento necesario de esta obra maestra de la acción, que no logro brillar en nintendos wiiu. El juego es pura acción frenética, una invitación constante a re jugar cada fase a fin de mejorar tu ranking, conseguir halos necesarios para deesbloquear un sinfín de habilidades, ataques y armas de Bayonetta, ademas de mejorar combos interminables hasta formar una danza de golpes, remates y ataques tortura contra ángeles y demonios, formidable. Ademas portátil! increíble experiencia que pareciera saltarse al menos 10 años de tecnología para llegar a este nivel de excelencia para un jugador. Ademas, con la edición de Bayonetta uno, sin mas que decir, uno de los mejores juegos de la historia y el referente por antonomasia de lo que es y será para próximos juegos un hack'and slash! Expand

    Bayonetta 2 is one of those games that hasn't been looked at by many fans, But I have to say this game is great.

    It may be stuck at 720p

    It may be stuck at 720p but who **** cares? Graphics don't make a game better, It just increases loading times..

    The Gameplay is great and if you can get it.
