Bayonetta 3 updated to version 1.2.0
The second half of Nintendo 2022 featured many game updates. Most of these were for their new game releases, but Nintendo even updated a few video games that haven’t received a single update in years.
Well, 2023 seems to be starting on a similar note. Nintendo and PlatinumGames have released an update for Bayonetta 3. After updating, Bayonetta 3 should be at version 1.2.0. It’s a big update, but its main purpose is to make fixes and fix issues. You can see the completed notes below.
Fixed Viola’s activation window for “Block” and the activation conditions for Witch Time. Added block activation window after Block is released (during the release animation). Added an additional animation when Witch Time takes effect, making its activation easier to accomplish. Witch Time’s set duration and activation window have been extended. Now, when the block activates when the player is attacked, the player will take the damage effect, but the block will succeed and activate Witch Time. Now, the combo can continue (with Dodge Offset) when the player uses Block to activate Witch Time. If the Block entry is used repeatedly, the granted duration of the Witch’s Time will decrease. Made adjustments to prevent Viola’s evasive input and Cheshire’s summoning input from activating Assault Slave while maintaining invincibility if they are used in quick succession. Simoon, Tartarus, and Viola’s Charge Attacks can now continue to charge, even if dodged or blocked. Wink Slave can now be activated by “PKP*” and “PKK*” combos for “G-Pillar”, “Dead End Express” and “Cassiopeia” weapons. *P is Punch and K is Kick When equipping the Infernal Communicator and Pulley’s Butterfly accessories to summon Devils and Butterflies, it is now possible to cancel the summoning move by dodging or blocking.
The following Niflheim stage conditions were changed to lower the difficulty:
Niflheim Stage Changed Conditions Chapter 2 Verse 5 (Casual to Expert) 120 second time limit changed to 150 second time limit Chapter 3 Verse 4 (Casual to Expert) Two lives increased to three lives Chapter 5 Verse 2 (Casual Time Limit to Expert）10 second 18) Second time limit Chapter 6 Verse 8 (Casual to Expert) Two lives increased to three lives Chapter 9 Verse 8 (Casual to Expert) 60 second time limit changed to 80 second time limit Chapter 10 Tier 1 (Random for Expert) 140 Second Timeline Changed to 160 Second Timeline Chapter 12 Tier 5 (Random for Expert) One life increased to two lives Conditions for obtaining the necessary “Tricolor Keys” to unseal the “Old Picture Book” have become easier. The “Tricolor Keys” will automatically be available in the chapter select screen once it becomes possible to enter the “Gates of Hell”. Even if the player already has access to the Gates of Hell, or has already received a key or two, a ta will automatically get the remaining keys when g on the chapter selection screen after applying the update. Made adjustments to Golem treasure chests found in stages. The time limits have increased and the difficulty has decreased. Fragmented Golem chest animation can now be fast-forwarded with the B button.Fixed to reduce situations with poor camera visibility. Adjusted game balance. Fixed a bug in chapter 7 verse 5 that prevented progress when certain actions were taken while controlling Cheshire. Fixed an issue with the Hymn of Durga accessory where its effect was not being applied to some attacks. Fixed an issue where using Alruna’s Bondage Whip (P or K*) ability in certain situations would cause enemies to instantly die. Fixed an issue where weapons using “Crow Within” (J* long press)” with “Scarborough Fair” and “Love is Blue” would cause the player to move forward significantly under certain conditions. Fixed an issue where Bayonetta’s animations would not play correctly when switching weapons immediately after using “Crow Within (J* long press)” with the “Scarborough Fair” and “Love is Blue” weapons Fixed a bug that caused the “Black Pearl Rain (Roll L stick + S*)” for Infernal Demon “Kraken” to trigger “Wink Slave” with extremely high attack power. Fixed a bug that caused “Devil Rodin” to get stuck for a while when using “After Hit of burning (↑K* in the air)” continuously, right after taking off with a previous “After hitting burning (J・K*)”. Fixed a bug in which Viola’s attack slave was able to summon the demons of infernalit in “areas forbidden by infernal demons.” Fixed a bug in the e symbol the hand seen in Cutie J’s transformation sequence that can be seen in the Side Chapter. Fixed other issues to make the game more enjoyable to play.
