Bayonetta 3 has reportedly been “rated as a semi-open game”
Bayonetta 3 has reportedly been considered a “semi-open world game”.
That’s according to gaming journalist Imran Khan, who offered an insider’s peek at the long-delayed sequel on his Patreon, pondering why these open-world rumors won’t come to anything in the end.
“At some point in development, Bayonetta 3 was classified as a semi-open world game,” Khan wrote to the audience. Patreon Post. “The design would have attracted more Astral Chain than Nier Automata, but the idea was to send a big hub world Bayonetta (or someone else) into different worlds that would themselves be somewhat open. Super Mario 64 would probably be a good reference point for this.”
“There was a lot of work and experimentation on this idea, but it kept falling apart when it came to speed, and eventually Nintendo wanted to scale back. As I heard, it didn’t perform particularly well on Switch hardware either.”
Interestingly, Khan adds that “there are still a lot of semi-open world design remnants in the final game” and gives a pivotal world, Thule – which is “broken into smaller pieces that Bayonetta and Viola navigate to get to the next main game world” – as an example.
“The chests have been redesigned a bit to be hunted in larger areas and provide a lot of variety to take advantage of the environment. Even the different weapon transformations would have made a bit traversal” (thanks, NME).

“My opinion is that if it doesn’t work and the developers don’t think it works, then maybe we’re not missing anything huge,” he added. “However, platinum games tend not to throw off old ideas, so I wouldn’t be shocked if something else got this treatment later.”
Bayonetta 3 may not always be as great as its predecessors, but when it’s good, it’s next to the lord; playing as Bayonetta with her full unlocked collection of games is as exciting as ever, a scene of intense battles and a surplus of S&M that’s uniquely, challenging gaming Video, “Martin wrote in Eurogamer Bayonetta 3 . Review.
“It’s so exaggerated that trying to make sense of it would be a mistake, and while the jagged edges are disappointing if you embrace the chaos, there’s a lot to love here. Bayonetta 3 is exaggerated, in uncovered parts — but that’s rarely less than exciting.”
