The ESRB rates Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon before to release

The Rating Summary section also included specific gameplay information for Bayonetta Origins, describing Cereza as she runs through a forest solving riddles and fighting not just demons but also fairies. It further mentions that Cereza throws spells on foes while Cheshire, the player-controlled melee assault character, handles battle. The synopsis mentions finishing manoeuvres that include trapping a monster within an Iron Maiden, which implies that torture assaults from the previous mainline entries will still be applicable in this spin-off despite its lighter tone. Another describes a scene in which a character’s body is dangling from a monster’s jaws while another describes a witch being impaled by a spear.

Although Bayonetta Origins centres on a younger Cereza, it seems that aspects from the mainstream games will still be present, in scaled-back ways that better match the game’s distinctive graphic style and direction. Despite the game’s tone and gameplay is quite different from the prior games, it seems to be a potential Switch exclusive.
