The Bayonetta Origins demo is out now

The full game is still out on March 17

Bayonetta Origins, otherwise known as Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon, is slated for release on March 17. Before that, you can test out this interesting spinoff in demo form. It’s actually out today, and will pick up from the opening moments of the game through “the early chapters.”

Here’s the full rundown of the demo from Nintendo:

“This is your lucky day. Or unlucky day, depending on how you play your cards, for the Avalon Forest is just as beautiful as it is beastly, and it has an appetite for wandering witches. In the Nintendo eShop demo, you can try out the early chapters of the Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon game. As a bonus, save data will transfer over to the full version of the game, when purchased, which launches on March 17.”

Yes, you can transfer save data from the demo over to the full version of the game. It seems like it’s a given for most larger IP these days (especially Nintendo games), but you never know! Also, there are accessibility options in tow: “The game also features accessibility options, such as reducing damage or automating some controls, that can help anyone (newcomers and Bayonetta fans alike) enjoy the game.”
