Nintendo recap: Truth behind Bayonetta cover-up and insight into Xenoblade Chronicles 3’s success

Hello everyone and welcome to this week’s Nintendo recap. After months of waiting, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 was finally released on Switch, and it’s proving to be a huge game with plenty of improvements over past entries in the series. In other news, we learned this week that it wasn’t Nintendo who told PlatinumGames to cover up our favorite witch, Bayonetta.

We also finally got a release date for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe — Booster Course Pass’s second wave, which brings additional courses, including a brand new one, to the game. There are plenty of other things to discuss, so let’s dive on in.

You’ll recall that a couple weeks ago, Nintendo released a new trailer for the upcoming Bayonetta 3 and explained that this adult game would have a new Naive Angel Mode that keeps the Umbra Witch covered up instead of having her be naked through her most powerful attacks. Many people on the internet didn’t respond well to this news, with some people blaming Nintendo for making PlatinumGames censor our leading lady.
