During this year’s Game Awards ceremony, Nintendo debuted two global first trailers for upcoming games on the nintendo switch system. The first was the revelation of Origins of Bayonetta: Cereza and the Lost Demon, a new version of the Bayonetta series featuring Cereza, a young apprentice witch before she was called Bayonetta. The game will launch for Nintendo Switch on March 17, 2023. The second trailer focused on the Fire Emblem Engage Expansion Passthe next paid DLC for the latest entry in the strategy RPG series. Fire Emblem Engage will launch for Nintendo Switch on January 20, 2023, with the first wave of the Expansion Pass* releasing at launch, followed by three additional waves releasing by the end of 2023.
Along with these new trailers, Nintendo also scooped up a few awards at the annual Game Awards event. It was a celebration of Bayonetta in many ways, like Bayonet 3 won Best Action Game, while Kirby and the Forgotten Land won the award for best family game, Splaton 3 won the award for best multiplayer and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom won the Most Anticipated Game award.
In Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon, players take on the role of Cereza, a young apprentice witch, and embark on a fateful journey through a forbidden forest to gain the power to save her mother. Along with sporting a striking and distinct storybook-inspired art style, this new title also features gameplay never seen before 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 a preview of the game won’t have to wait long at all! In fact, a brief playable teaser for Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon can be accessed in the game Bayonetta 3! Players who purchased the old picture book from Rodin’s shop, The Gates of Hell, using in-game currency and unlocked it with three keys will be able to access the teaser.
In another trailer that debuted during The Game Awards, the paid Fire Emblem Engage Expansion Pass DLC was introduced for the upcoming Fire Emblem Engage game. The first of four waves of DLC will be released when the game launches 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 an in-game emblem, as well as Tiki from Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light as another emblem. Emblems can be summoned in Fire Emblem Engage to fight alongside the main heroes, helping to improve their stats and aiding them in battle.
