After the most recent Nintendo Direct, we learned a lot of new information about upcoming games. One of those games was Bayonetta 3, and we got a brand new gameplay trailer for the game.
Was it Dante in Bayonetta 3?
The new Bayonetta 3 gameplay trailer showed us a lot of gameplay from the latest installment in the series which will be exclusive to Nintendo Switch. The most notable thing, however, happened at the end of the trailer. We saw a mysterious character that would be Dante from the Devil May Cry franchise.
