Comparatively, Bayonetta 2 for the Nintendo Switch is only 12.4GB in size, whereas the first Bayonetta game on the hybrid Nintendo console is 8.6GB.
Bayonetta 3’s new setting, adversaries, characters, and gameplay elements, such as Bayonetta’s demonic disguise transformations, are all showcased in this teaser. It also featured returning figures, including Luka, Jeanne, Rodin, and Enzo.

A new witch named Viola was also announced to be a playable character; she platforms while utilizing a slingshot and a katana like Raiden from Metal Gear Rising.

Nintendo has released the game’s file size, giving players a sense of how much storage they’ll require with just over three months till release.

It’s not the largest game available for the Nintendo Switch; for instance, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy takes up 25 GB. The first Bayonetta game requires 8.6 GB more storage space than later Switch releases in the series.

On either side, the second game uses 12.4 GB of storage, so going from 15 GB to 20 GB makes the game seem to be marginally larger, especially in terms of assets. Keep in mind that Bayonetta 3 will launch on the Nintendo Switch this autumn.
