Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon – Demo version, overview trailer, and story trailer

Next week (on March 17th to be precise), Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon will be released on Nintendo Switch worldwide. For those of you who are curious about the game, and want to find out more about Cereza before she became Bayonetta, a demo version is now available on the Nintendo eShop worldwide.

Thanks to this demo, you can discover the first 2 chapters of the game. And if you’re convinced, and want to check out the rest of Cereza’s story, you will be able to transfer your progress to the full version of the game. That way, you will be able to pick up exactly where the demo left off, without having to replay through the first 2 chapters!

The demo for Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon offers some pretty in-depth settings, allowing you to adjust the difficulty to your liking. For example, those who aren’t too good at action games can set damage received from enemies to 0, so that they can focus on the story and puzzles. And of course, those same settings are also available in the full version of the game!

And alongside this demo, Nintendo also shared a brand new trailer for the game, which focuses on the story (English and Japanese versions are available):

And that’s not all! Nintendo also shared the usual overview trailer for the game. Right now, it’s only available in Japanese, but the English version will be added to this post as soon as it goes live!

Here it is:

Finally, Nintendo shared some details about a key element of the game: Tír na nÓg, the Realm of Illusions. Those are special spaces created by fairies, with different rules and mechanisms than the rest of the Avalon forest. You have to make full use of Cereza and Cheshire’s abilities to progress through those spaces, which can be found throughout the game.

In the deepest reaches of each Tír na nÓg, there’s a core for you to destroy. Doing so causes the Tír na nÓg itself to collapse, which has a neat benefit: it unlocks nearby areas, allowing you to explore more of the Avalon forest!

Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon (Switch) comes out on March 17th worldwide!
