Bayonetta 3 live update, patch notes released

A new update has been released for bayonet 3 in Nintendo Switch, bringing the game to version 1.2.0. This update is quite substantial and actually makes some parts of the game easier than they were before. In particular, the difficulty level of several Nifelheim stages has been lowered; in some cases, that translates to an increased time limit, while in other cases players have more lives to complete each stage. There are also a handful of bug fixes, which should make things run a bit better! Full Nintendo Patch Notes official Web site can be found below:
