This article contains major Bayonetta 3 spoilers.

around the entirety Bayonetta 3, multiple personalities indicate that they are on a quest to discover the truth. However, by the time the game runs its course, it is well established that the truth – especially in a world abundant in alternate universes and timelines – is subjective and personal. For these dimensions, Luca, the “truth” is that he exists “to get Bayonetta where you want it to be.” Bayonetta’s fact is not explicitly stated. However, in her last encounter with the Big Bad Game, she made a powerful sentence after realizing what led her to her pursuit of truth: “I’d rather make my own truth.”

Now play: Bayonetta 3 video review

In Bayonetta 3, truth is perception. In researching the truth about who Bayonetta is – a hotly debated topic in gaming media – I would argue that the same can be said.

Upon its launch, the Bayonetta series was met with criticism from feminist media critics such as Anita Sarkissian (as seen in this video archived by bad reviews) to create a protagonist who appealed to the masculine outlook. However, as noted before ribbedIt didn’t take long for LGBTQ+ circles to claim the adorable lady who began heralded as an exotic icon and a woman in complete control of her sexuality. For those who are part of these communities, it’s not hard to see why: much of the game’s and theatrical nature appears as a kind of performance about sexuality, creating parallels between serial and gritty in musicals or drag shows. . As such, there has always been tension and interesting conversation about Bayonetta and which community has, for lack of a better phrase, demanded more – which is at all A statement that would make her roll her eyes and unleash some demonic beast at us.

In Bayonetta 3, this conversation resurfaced as enthusiastically as Polygon’s Bayonetta 3 review, which She expressed her dissatisfaction with her journey down a heterogeneous pathIt started to spread. You see, in Bayonetta 3 we come to the discovery that in some universe Bayonetta fell in love with Luka, which leads to the emergence of the newest character in the series, Viola. In the last two chapters of the game, this family and their love for each other come to the fore as the world begins to collapse around them. In the end, Bayonetta and Luca died to save their daughter’s life. As their bodies slowly covered the fire of Hell, Luca told Bayoneta, “Destiny has brought us together and it will never tear us apart. We will always be together, Syriza.” Bayonetta then smiles sweetly at Luca, and says, “No, Luca. We’ve always been together. The beautiful idiot who will forever be in my heart,” before we finally perish at his side.

Luca hits a wall during the game’s final battle.

This interaction has led to some fans of the series expressing their frustration and heartbreak over Bayonetta’s choice to be with a man after she developed a reputation for being hypersexual, independent and flirtatious – especially towards women. Some find it contradictory to her character, while others see her as a slight to Bayonetta’s best friend and somewhat sacred love interest Jane. The idea, at least deduced, that fate would bring Bayonetta and Luca together over and over again led some to feel as if their sexuality had been erased. However, all of this seems a bit on the wane.

As a bisexual woman in a relationship with a man, I enjoy a great deal of privilege that women in relationships with other women cannot claim. On the surface, my sex life seems heterogeneous. My relationship is monogamous, and our child seems – in the eyes of those who scrutinize it – irrefutable evidence that we have adhered to a standard way of living. However, even though I’ve escaped the wrath of conservative thinkers, I’ve had to contend with a lot of not-so-cool situations on androgynous women settling down with men. Was it just a stage? Have you been in actual relationships with women? Did you have sex with them? Sometimes it feels like you’re applying for a pretty crazy job with the most extensive background check imaginable, and your exits are the only people you can list as references.

Among some bisexual women, there is a kind of unspoken rule that even if you are with a man, you need to not enjoy them as a group – you have to resent the fact that you can’t get rid of that much attraction and stick to the fairer sex. Treating men with tenderness can be seen as a weakness, proving that you are not really in line with where you need to be. This reinforces two scary notions: that men do not need or deserve affection from partners, and that bisexual women must eschew softness and romance in order to embrace being a powerful sexual force. And while the latter can sometimes feel empowering, it can easily feel like profiling or, worse yet, profiling.

So, as Bayonetta gently teases and expresses affection for Luca, comically remarking, “I can imagine worse men to spend my moments with,” and their story ends, I see a much healthier way of this dynamic – as it becomes an inside joke and Luca doesn’t dare say “Not all men are.” Because he knows better, even if he is a clumsy idiot. Seeing the comments I make to my husband, who, like Luka and Bayonetta, I would like to imagine I would find and love in every world, even if I also had relationships with women.

However, it’s also important to acknowledge that these moments of romance are these Bayonetta and Luka feelings – not all of them. Throughout the game, there seem to be worlds that aren’t together, and that wouldn’t be the way you wanted these particular variants to be, though other versions wouldn’t know better than that. In the universe of Egypt, Jane and Bayonetta are clearly together. With that version of Bayonetta dying, Jane calls out to be proud of her accomplishments – to be proud of her “princess.” And this isn’t the first time Jen and Bayonetta have been portrayed as a married couple. As noted before office On Twitter, there is an official artwork depicting their union. Regardless of what Bayonetta’s relationship in this universe might look like, there is enough evidence that – as a multidimensional character – she has feelings and attraction towards women as well, making her likely bisexual.

There have also been claims on Twitter and Kotaku review It’s from Bayonetta 3 that Luka – a character who wasn’t so important in the previous entries – has been outmaneuvered to attract men and act as a backup for the common man, which serves as proof that they can get an untamable woman like Bayonetta. However, I don’t find this to be true. Luca does not save the situation, nor does he feel that he alone takes center stage in any part of the game’s finale. As one of Luka’s last works, he has openly stated that he will dedicate his efforts to getting Bayonetta to where she must take care of things herself and will always strive to protect their daughter. Additionally, there are two alternate dimensions Bayonettas – poignantly portrayed as the game’s previous protagonists – and Viola who ultimately provide the most help. Luca never feels like a man who takes him particularly seriously, or like someone with inexplicable and unexplained power. This Bayonetta, while admitting his feelings for Luca, isn’t even with him, in keeping with creator Hideki Kamiya’s previous comment that they likely won’t be a couple because Bayonetta will pretty much live after him.

All three types of Bayonetta prepare for battle.

However, I think the sheer importance of what this story does and how this debate overcame it is even more troubling. For years, we’ve been asking for more AAA games around motherhood. In series like God of War and The Last of Us, we’ve seen strong and sometimes morally questionable men become strong paternal characters, but there’s still a shortage of women in that role. First and foremost, Bayonetta is a story about motherhood, and it’s a good story at that.

Too often, motherhood is portrayed in a sterile fashion. Mothers are not sexual, perverted, violent or dark. However, Bayonetta is all of those things while also being a character she still cherishes and a “mother” that her daughter absolutely adores. And not only do we see Bayonetta interacting with Viola and treating her as a mother, we also see Bayonetta as a little girl and daughter who is the same. While the parts of the game where you briefly play as Bayonetta solving puzzles frozen in time may seem a bit out of place, it does seem like a great way to draw attention to Bayonetta as a woman who was once a little girl and not just a confident sexual force to be reckoned with. out. We also meet Bayonetta’s mother, who shares her daughter a sweet moment before the two had to separate. Hearing Bayonetta calling “The Mummy”, with unparalleled vulnerability, adds to her a major dimension while also evoking strong feelings in the player.

There seems to be such an emphasis on finding out what Bayonetta likes – what she likes and whether her lascivious nature is something she has or is forced to keep. People seem to strive to put her in a box while she has always been a woman, as she puts it, creating her own reality. I’m hungry to see more lesbian relationships portrayed in the media, especially within games. I am frustrated seeing so many characters coded as gay that I don’t have the opportunity to confirm or commit to them. But bringing that fight into this game is wrong.

I don’t know the right way to interpret Bayonetta and I wouldn’t dare tell you how it feels or the events of the last game. Hell, I have misgivings about the absolute lack of harmony between the game duo. But I also have my own “truth” which gives me a deep connection to it after the events of Bayonetta 3, and you really have. Bayonetta is a character designed for absolutely anyone, and as such, is for everyone.
