This inclusion is definitely smart, as it should give fans an idea of what to expect from the spinoff. Bayonetta Origins it’s going to be very different from what players have seen from the rest of the series, and could be a hard sell as a result.

Of course, the first three Bayonetta games have been rated “M for Adults” by the ESRB, while Bayonetta Origins it has received a “T for Teen” rating. That rating could help introduce the series to younger Switch owners, or those who might have been less willing to give the older series entries a try. Bayonetta has always been quite a specialized series, so Bayonetta Origins it could be a great opportunity for Nintendo and PlatinumGames. Existing fans will have to see how that works, but they can at least get a taste of the spinoff right now!
