We’ve seen some trailers for Bayonetta: Bloody Fate before but they all featured Japanese voice work. This latest trailer is the first time that we’re hearing the English voice cast and it’s nice to hear that the original Bayonetta, Hellena Taylor, makes a return. Most of the originals return as well.
This trailer features a lot of action in it which is always nice. The animation is being handled by Gonzo and directed by Fuminori Kizaki who brought us Afro Samurai so it’s no surprise that it looks as sweet as it does.
This movie is an adaptation of sorts of the first Bayonetta game. It seems to be a bit more serious in tone than the original game but I’m hoping that some of the quirky humor makes it to the anime as well.
The movie will be released on October 21, around the same time as Bayonetta 2 for the Wii U. People can pre-order the Blu-ray from Funimation by following this link.
