Bayonetta Origins Is Available Now - Snag It For Only $45

The Bayonetta spin-off game released today, March 17.


The latest big Nintendo Switch exclusive is here. Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon, a prequel spin-off to the popular action series, launched today, March 17. If you didn't preorder a copy and are interested in picking it up, you can save big on your order at Super Shop. The retailer is offering Bayonetta Origins for only $45 when using GameSpot's exclusive promo code GMSPTBYNT.

Editor's Note: Previously, this discount code dropped the price to $49. The deal is now even better at just $45. If you preordered at the $49 price point, Super Shop will refund the difference if you file a customer service ticket.

To cash in on the deal, head over to the Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon store page at Super Shop. You’ll see the game already listed at a discount ($55, down from $60), but if you click "Coupon/Gift Certificate" on the checkout page and enter promo code GMSPTBYNT, the price will drop all the way down to just $45. This is probably the best deal we'll see for at least a few months, so grab it while you can. Your order comes with free shipping, too.

Bayonetta Origins is quite the departure from the mainline series. You play as two characters, Cereza and Cheshire, simultaneously as you navigate a colorful world from an isometric perspective. There's still action combat, but Bayonetta Origins is more puzzle- and narrative-focused.

Despite big changes in style and tone, Bayonetta Origins is more than worthy of its name. It earned a 9/10 in our Bayonetta Origins review.

"Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and The Lost Demon is a testament to thinking outside the box," critic Jessica Howard wrote. "While I don't suspect Platinum Games will pivot to this new style of gameplay and storytelling in future Bayonetta games in the same way Breath of the Wild or God of War (2018) shifted the direction of their respective franchises, I cannot help but be thankful that the studio trusted the vision of its team enough to create this experience. Though with how fantastic every aspect of the game is, I understand why the developer did."

As a prequel, you can enjoy Bayonetta Origins even if you haven't played the other three games in the franchise. That said, we'd highly recommend playing all three of them. Bayonetta 3, which released last fall, is discounted to $45 at Amazon and Best Buy right now. Meanwhile, you can snag the first Bayonetta game on PC (Steam) for $5.79 at Fanatical.
