This week’s eShop update can be summed up in two words: Bayonetta 3.
What else do you need? The series has been marked by crazy action since it debuted in 2009, and this entry looks like it will hit all of the same boxes.
There are obviously a ton of other games featured in this week’s update, but the return of the Umber Witch is easily the highlight. See the full list below, and also check out Nintendo’s updated Game Store listing, here.
This week’s Nintendo download includes the following content:

- bayonet 3 – Get ready to have a devilishly good time in one of Bayonetta’s most full-bodied adventures to date! In this new over-the-top climactic action game, everyone’s favorite witch, the fabulous Bayonetta, must take on a mysterious group of man-made evil bioweapons using her signature weapons and the time-slowing ability Witch Time. She harnesses new powers like Demon Masquerade, which lets you channel one of Bayonetta’s demons and save the day in new locations like the streets of Tokyo and the mountains of China. Additionally, she plays as new character Viola, who fights with a sword and a wayward demon sidekick named Cheshire. You’ll also meet a virtual coven of other Bayonettas, each more fabulous than the last. bayonet 3 will be available on October 28 on the Nintendo eShop.
