Naive Angel Mode, which can be activated to lower the amount of violence and sexual content, can now be used in more scenes. Also, Naive Angel Mode can now be activated when starting the game for the first time.

After starting the game, you can change the Naive Angel Mode setting from “Options > “Screen Display”. However, you cannot do so while in the middle of a chapter. You can change it either from the Title Screen or from “Options” in “Chapter Menu”.

The Bayonetta 3 day one update also introduces Online functionality and makes some unspecified general and balance adjustments.


High-scores and best times can now be uploaded in the “Online Leaderboards” section.
Here’s the various ways to upload your high-scores and best times:
Press the + button on the result screen after clearing a chapter
Select a chapter you’ve cleared as well as the difficulty level in “Chapter Menu” → “Online Leaderboards” and press the + button
Select a chapter you’ve cleared in “Chapter Menu” → “Play History” and press the + button
If you obtain a “Platinum” rating for your score or time before downloading this update, the score or time will be adjusted to match the target value of the “Platinum” rating
The “Total Time” for each chapter will be revised if your time is faster than the target value.


Game balance has been adjusted.
Other adjustments were made to improve the game play experience.

Bayonetta 3 launches on Nintendo Switch on October 28th worldwide. Learn more about the game by checking out Nathan's review.

Bayonetta 3 is the series’ best entry yet, offering an engaging universe-hopping story, bombastic cinematic moments, and refined action that’s both accessible and deeper than ever before. The game can feel slightly hemmed in on the Switch, but Platinum pummels every bit of possible performance out of the hardware. Whether you and Bayonetta have history or not, this is an engagement not to be missed.
