Bayonetta 2 was released back in 2014 (on Wii U), which means it’s been 8 years since the last new Bayonetta game was released. While fans of the series are eagerly awaiting the release of Bayonetta 3 (out this Friday worldwide!), there’s also many newcomers who may have heard of the series but have never played one (either because they’re not sure what the games are about, how they play, or even if they’re for them or not).
In order to entice those newcomers (and further whet the appetite of Bayonetta fans who have to wait until Friday to play the game!), Nintendo have partnered with two prominents Japanese YouTubers to promote Bayonetta 3: Elu (a Vtuber affiliated with Nijisanji) and EIKO!GO!!.
They didn’t pick up just anybody, though, as Elu has already played Bayonetta games before, while EIKO!GO!! is a complete newbie. That way, people not familiar with the series will be able to discover the series as played by both an experienced and inexperienced player.
The videos will go live on October 27th at the following times:
Elu (Nijisanji) [livestream]
- Europe: 1PM
- UK: 12PM
- North America (ET): 7AM
- North America (PT): 4AM

EIKO!GO!! [pre-recorded, will go live as premiere]
- Europe: 2PM
- UK: 1PM
