Nintendo eShop update puts Bayonetta 3 fans on high alert

The Nintendo Store had serious problems yesterday, much to the chagrin of Xenoblade Chronicles Fans. Now it is updated and put Bayonet fans on high alert in the process. Bayonet fans have been waiting for a long time Bayonet 3, which Nintendo continues to claim will finally release this year. When exactly this year remains a mystery, but it looks like that mystery is coming to an end soon. Amid rumors that a new Nintendo Direct is imminent, the Nintendo Store has updated and all of a sudden Bayonet 3 is on the front page, which is odd unless it’s about to get a release date and a big pre-order push.

Now, could that be a mistake? Sure, but the timing suggests that’s not the case. If the game is due out this year, it will be dated very soon. And with rumors that a new Nintendo Direct could take place as soon as next week, the circumstances seem too great to be a mere coincidence.

All that said, for now, everything here is speculative. And so far, Nintendo hasn’t addressed this speculation in any capacity. We don’t anticipate this change for various reasons, but if it does, we’ll make sure to update the story accordingly.
