We leave you with his words:
Hello everyone, my name is Hideki Kamiya and I am the Lead Game Designer at PlatinumGames and the Supervising Director of Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon. Wow, that seems like a lot! In a nutshell, I am the supervising director for the Bayonetta series, where I mainly oversee the game’s story and write the game’s scenario, among other things.
I am elated that Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon has finally been announced worldwide! I think many of our fans were surprised by this sudden announcement, as Bayonetta 3 had just been released. With that in mind, I’m sure you’ve all seen the magic word “Bayonetta” in the name of the title. And many of you will be surprised to see Bayonetta straying from her usual repertoire of weapons to visit a strange illusory world that looks like it’s straight out of a fairy tale!
Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon is something very new for PlatinumGames, created by a team of ambitious young developers with only a few veterans to help them along the way. Abebe Tinari is spearheading the project as Director for the first time, and Tomoko Nishii brings the game’s unique visual style to life as Art Director.
The protagonist of Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon is a young witch apprentice named Cereza. Yes you’re right. She is THAT Cherry. Our own Bayonetta (albeit in her childhood years).
I guess some of you may be intimidated by the word “Bayonetta” in the title name; maybe you are not experts in intense action games, or maybe you are not familiar with the history of Bayonetta because you have not played it. This game is a completely new gaming experience, unlike any other Bayonetta game so far. We created Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon in the hope that fans of the series to date will enjoy this unique take on their favorite badass heroine, and we also strive to provide an unforgettable experience for players who may not feel comfortable with it. with action games… or even players who are not familiar with the Bayonetta series.
I implore you to let your guard down and approach this title with a fresh and open mind, as you plunge into an adventure set deep within a mysterious forest, controlling the weird and wonderful duo of a somewhat shy and inexperienced young witch and a rude and unruly street demon.
Yes, you read that right! There is one more protagonist in this game! His name is Cheshire, a demon who roamed the human world. In a forest filled with danger, the raw power of this demon is essential to your survival. Players must combine Cherry’s magical abilities and Cheshire’s fierce power to progress through the game. The way you control these two is truly a unique experience and I’m sure you’ll love sinking your claws into the game.
The story is about two inexperienced souls who grow up and find out who they really are. Bayonetta Origins: Cherry and the Lost Demon is an opportunity for you to return to your childhood and see for yourself where Cherry and Cheshire’s adventure takes them as you turn each page of this enchantingly illustrated book.
Do not forget that the title will cost €59.99. We remind you of the premise of the game and its trailer in Spanish:
Long before this apprentice of the dark arts became Bayonetta, she embarked on a journey to the forest of Avalon that would mark her destiny forever. She was accompanied by Cheshire, a stuffed animal possessed by what would be her first demon. Playing as Cherry and Cheshire, she travels through this treacherous forest in search of the power to save Cherry’s mother.
