Since Joker’s arrival in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo fans have been hungry for Persona content for Switch. On October 21, Persona 5 Royal joins the collection.
This is a release of the definitive edition of the game that comes bundled with lots of DLC – over 40 DLC items in total, we’re told. Fight for justice on the streets of Tokyo, unlock Personas, customize your own thieves’ den and much more. If you want to become the ultimate Phantom Thief, get a pre-order below.
Finally, at last Bayonetta 3 will be released on October 28th. We hope the years of waiting will pay off!
The game will receive both a standard and a special physical edition, with the latter already proving extremely difficult to obtain. We’ll keep track of all the links you need in our dedicated pre-order guide, but be sure to jump on any Trinity Masquerade Edition stock whenever you see it.
Bayonetta struts across multiple locations in an all-new over-the-top climax action game. With a wicked new ensemble and somehow familiar pigtails, the titular Umbra Witch must confront a mysterious evil using her signature weapons and the time-slowing Witch Age ability. This time, invading artificial bioweapons called homunculi find themselves caught in Bayonetta’s crosshairs.
One of the most intriguing Sonic titles in a long time is indeed racing to Switch very soon, with Sonic Frontiers launching for the system on November 8th.
With an all-new open-zone platforming system at its core, as well as a fancy combat system and skill tree to contend with, Frontiers takes Sonic in a very different direction than we’re used to. He’s stranded on an ancient island in search of missing Chaos Emeralds, but you must help him take on hordes of enemies as you explore the game’s five islands to find them.
