During this year’s Game Awards, Nintendo debuted two world premiere previews of games coming to the Nintendo Switch system. The first was Bayonetta Origins Reveals: Cereza and the Lost Demon, a remake of the Bayonetta series starring Cereza, a young witch apprentice before being called Bayonetta. The game launches for Nintendo Switch on March 17, 2023. The second trailer focused on the Fire Emblem Engage Expansion Pass, the upcoming paid DLC for the latest entry in the strategy RPG series. Fire Emblem Engage for Nintendo Switch launches on January 20, 2023, with the first wave of Expansion Pass* released at launch, followed by three additional waves to be released by the end of 2023.
In addition to these new trailers, Nintendo also won some awards during the annual Game Awards. It was a celebration of Bayonetta in many ways, with Bayonetta 3 taking home Best Action Game, Kirby and the Forgotten Land winning Best Family Game, Splatoon 3 winning Best Multiplayer and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom winning Best Multiplayer game. Most anticipated game award.
In Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon, players assume the role of Cereza, a young apprentice witch, who embarks on a fateful journey into a forbidden forest to gain the power to save her mother. In addition to its stunning and distinct storybook-inspired sports style, this new title also features gameplay never before seen in the Bayonetta series. Controlling both Cereza and her infernal demon partner, Cheshire, players will focus on exploration, combat, and puzzle-solving to help Cereza go deeper into the forest.
Players who want to catch a glimpse of the game won’t have to wait long at all! In fact, a short playable teaser for Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon can be accessed through the game Bayonetta 3! Players who purchased the old comic book from Rodin’s store, The Gates of Hell, using in-game currency and unlocked it with three keys, will have access to the teaser.
In another trailer that debuted during The Game Awards, the paid Fire Emblem Engage Expansion Pass bundle for the upcoming Fire Emblem Engage game was introduced. The first batch of four waves of downloadable content (DLC) will be released at the game’s launch for Nintendo Switch on January 20, 2023, and will add a variety of content, including Edelgard, Dimitri, and Claude from Fire Emblem: Three Houses as a single in-game banner, Plus Tiki from Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light as another emblem. Emblems in Fire Emblem Engage can be summoned to fight alongside main heroes, helping to boost their stats and assist them in combat.
