“BAYONETTA will receive a TRILOGY edition with its three main games in one pack for the Switch 2.

The games will bring visual (HDR confirmed) and performance improvements.

In a reply, a gamer asked about the potential announcement date of Nintendo Switch 2. To which NWeedle replied, “From Switch 2 we should know something before the end of the fiscal year, personally I think it will be soon, but Nintendo changes the plans so much that I don’t want to burn myself anymore.”

However, take this rumor with a grain of salt, because these are all speculations at this point. It’s worth noting, though, that Nintendo often launches new consoles with ports of popular existing games, especially from their own franchises. The Nintendo Switch itself received re-releases of several Wii U titles like Bayonetta 2 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Several analysts and industry insiders have predicted a release window for the Nintendo Switch 2 between late 2024 and early 2025, suggesting Nintendo is gearing up for a new console. If you look at the past pattern, Nintendo has released new consoles roughly every 5-6 years. The original Switch launched in 2017, so a release in 2024-2025 aligns with this.

Speaking of the Bayonetta series – it enjoys a dedicated fanbase and critical acclaim over the years and it also has a spot in our list of the best Nintendo Switch games you should play. A Switch 2 launch with the trilogy could bring in a new-found interest in the franchise and attract new players.

Nintendo has not made any official announcement about a Bayonetta Trilogy for Switch 2 and there’s no information yet about potential performance enhancements or additional features for the rumored Switch 2 version. If there’s any update, we will keep you posted right here.
