Nintendo Investor Report Reaffirms Bayonetta 3 2022 Release Date

May 10, 2022

Bayonetta 3 fans are quite anxious about a delay, but it seems like the game is still on track for a 2022 release date according to Nintendo.

In its annual report, Nintendo has revealed quite a bit of information about its games and revenue. While the annual net sales have become slightly lesser than Financial Year ’21 with a 3.6% reduction, the operating profit has taken an even bigger hit with a 7.5% drop.

Considering that Financial Year ’21 was quite a big year for the Nintendo Switch as sales skyrocketed due to the launch of Animal Crossing: New Horizons and the massive demand for the console amidst the pandemic, it isn’t quite surprising to see a slight drop in the revenue of the company.

There is a stock shortage as well which has refused to get better despite demand being slightly lesser, thanks to the chip shortage. The Nintendo Switch is not the only console that is a victim of chip shortage, as the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 are facing a similar fate as well.

One of the most interesting revelations in the report is the release date of some of the upcoming games Nintendo has in store for the Switch.

Nintendo has reiterated the release date of Mario Strikers Super League Fire Emblem Three Hopes, Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, and Splatoon 3. Along with that, Nintendo has further stated that Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will be coming in Late 2022, while Bayonetta 3 will also be coming in 2022 as well.

The release window for Bayonetta 3 hasn’t been mentioned, but it is expected that we will likely not be getting it anytime before the second half of the year. However, what is interesting is the fact that Nintendo is still planning to release Bayonetta 3 in 2022 itself, amidst growing fears of a possible delay.

Nintendo recently announced that the Breath of the Wild sequel has been delayed to Spring 2023, so fans were quite skeptical about Bayonetta 3 as well. It remains to be seen when Nintendo announces the release date for Bayonetta 3.
