Bayonetta 2 (Feb. 16)

It’s a bit odd to think that Bayonetta of all things has become a key series for Nintendo, but it’s certainly gone that way as of late. After funding the development of Bayonetta 2, Nintendo then included Bayonetta in Super Smash Bros. as a DLC character. Now, one of the very best games on Wii U is coming to the Nintendo Switch, with the first game bundled in and some new amiibo features as well.

Bayonetta 2 takes place a few months after the first game, and finds the Umbra Witch trying to track down the Gates of Hell in order to save her friend Jeanne. The game’s intense, over-the-top action is some of the very best you can find in the genre. Bayonetta 2’s impressive 91 on Metacritic, with a 9.0 user score, is a testament to the quality of the Nintendo exclusive.

While Bayonetta 2 was indeed great, the limited reach of the Wii U meant the game could never really live up to its full potential. Now with the Switch’s popularity surging and tons of systems in people’s hands, the game could easily see a second life.
