Bayonetta 2 is available now for the Nintendo Switch and interestingly, the game contains easter eggs that are not found in the original Wii U version.
There are a lot of new things with Bayonetta 2 for the Nintendo Switch, including visual upgrades and touchscreen support. Also new to the game are easter eggs that are possibly teasing Bayonetta 3 and the new Super Smash Bros., two of Nintendo Switch owners' highly anticipated titles.
Bayonetta 2 Easter Eggs: Here's What They Might Mean
Bayonetta 2 for the Nintendo Switch comes with amiibo support, and scanning the figurines will allow players to unlock costumes for Bayonetta. Rodin, the game's weapons dealer, will have a message every time players scan an amiibo, and these messages allegedly contain references to Bayonetta 3 and Super Smash Bros.
The messages, which were compiled by YouTuber GameXplain, are as follows:
The first two messages are apparently referring to Bayonetta 3, where everyone's favorite Umbra Witch will be "back in action." Rodin added that he just wants to see what Bayonetta's hair will do next, which is a sentiment shared by all of the franchise's fans.
Bayonetta is not looking too good in the Bayonetta 3 teaser trailer, though. Accordingly, this might mean that she will get a completely new hairstyle and new powers in the third installment of the series.
Meanwhile, the third message, with terms such as "fight club" and "all-stars," clearly alludes the Super Smash Bros. series. The question here is whether this is in reference to the old versions of the game, or if this is a hint that the Super Smash Bros. Nintendo Switch version is coming soon.
"Bring me along next time, huh?" said Rodin in the message, which may even mean that the weapons dealer could find his way into the next Super Smash Bros. game, possibly as a playable character.
Some 'Bayonetta 2' Copies Come With Faulty 'Bayonetta' Codes
Unfortunately, the easter eggs were not the only surprises for Bayonetta 2. The game comes with a digital download code for Bayonetta, the first game in the series. However, some copies of Bayonetta 2 with faulty download codes were shipped.
Nintendo of America has learned of the matter and responded by directing customers affected by the issue to Nintendo's official support page. Nintendo did not go into detail on how many Bayonetta 2 copies are affected and what caused the problem. Gamers who report the issue, however, will acquire their Bayonetta download codes after a few hours or less.
