Is Bayonetta 1 getting a physical release?

Bayonetta is back and ready for action.

The first Bayonetta started it all, and PlatinumGames' series has taken off since its initial release in 2014. Since then, fans have received a sequel in Bayonetta 2, and Bayonetta 3 now has an official release date. But some other news for the Bayonetta series may have fans wondering if Bayonetta is getting a physical release on the Nintendo Switch.

The answer is yes—after all this time, Bayonetta 1 is officially getting a physical Switch release. It was initially ported to the Switch as a code bundled with Bayonetta 2. With this new release, fans will finally be able to own all three Bayonetta's physically.
