Choosing your character in any fighting game is a special process. To get successful, you should know your virtual guy or a girl perfectly, practice their every move and combo notoriously. In fact, your choice defines the general playing experience in the future and somewhat describes you as a personality. This is true for most fighting games (such as Tekken, for example). But for the Super Smash Bros. series, the process of choosing your character is even more significant.
The variety of fighters here is absolutely breathtaking. You can take Sonic and have that specific atmosphere around the blue hedgehog. Or you can take Ryu and bring the power of Street Fighter games into SSBU. And your experience will change drastically! Would you like to choose Smash Ultimate Bayonetta? Then be ready to delve into the unique hack-and-slash action from the original games with this powerful girl!
Our Smash Bros. Ultimate Bayonetta guide describes the story behind this character and highlights the basic Bayonetta moveset.
Recently, we published a similar guide on SSBU Banjo-Kazooie.
Her real name is Cereza but the world knows her as Bayonetta. She is a witch but not an ordinary one (are there ordinary witches?). Bayonetta belongs to the clan of Umbra Witches and performs powerful dark magic.
In her core games, Bayonetta uses lots of different weapons and participates in seemingly endless fights against all sorts of mystical creatures - with blood splashing all over the place and various over-the-top animations, such as creating a mighty demon out of her long hair.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate Bayonetta is not that aggressive. After all, the Nintendo fighting is fun entertainment, not an epic story of mythological battles. Still, many Bayonetta moves resemble the original animations from these two games:
- Bayonetta - 2009. The heroine tries to restore her memories by returning to her old home. On the way, Bayonetta fights angel warriors. You can play this game on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, Nintendo Switch and PC (that’s a lot of devices)
- Bayonetta 2 - 2014. The witch finds herself fighting angels again but then she is forced to explore other dimensions to save her friend Jeanne from Inferno. This installment is exclusive for the Nintendo consoles: Wii U and Switch.
Of course, it’s better to explore the story directly in the games - but the plot here is not so important as an excellent battling system.
- Bayonetta 3 is an upcoming game, planned for the Nintendo Switch.
