Bayonetta Origins is unlike any other Bayonetta you’ve ever played, save for a handful of key elements. Cereza is still our protagonist, and as Metroidvania, exploration is still at the heart of the game.
However, the 100 hours spent beating Rodin won’t help you here. Origins has a completely different style of play, complete with an open world and a completely new style of combat. Here are some tricks to make it easier for you to launch and experience Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon.
take your time
Even if you’re an experienced gamer, there’s a chance that the controls used by Bayonetta Origins are something you’ve never seen before. In fact, Cereza is controlled with the left half of the controller, while the Cheshire demon with the right or a Joy-Con on each side.
Often it’s necessary to move both characters independently at the same time to position themselves and avoid damage, and it’s not the easiest thing to master. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with the controls and how to interact with both characters at once – you’ll thank us.
It takes two
Cereza can only bind and heal enemies, and cannot deal damage. You might be tempted and mistaken to take her to a safe location and then do all the work with Cheshire, but there’s a much easier way to complete the battles. In fact, you can unlock mastery levels for each element at the skill trees in the shrines.
These are extremely strong combos, and also the easiest way to take down waves of enemies in just a few hits. Bind an enemy with Cereza and hold ZR to attack. A blue X will appear on Cheshire’s face asking you to press ZR again. By doing so, you’ll deal massive splash damage that will greatly speed up combat.
Bayonetta Origins has a beautiful open world with multiple paths and opportunities to explore. However, the in-game map is rather stingy with details: it doesn’t report any entrances or exits, and it’s often possible to see areas from a distance without having any idea how to get there.
The best way to get around this problem is to grab a pen and paper. Draw your own map and mark the places of interest, where each route leads and where you want to return later. It may seem like a hassle, but it will actually save you a lot of time when you try to remember where that area is that you wanted to explore.
Follow the main path
Bayonetta Origins is full of interconnected levels that you could get lost in. Most Metroidvanias encourage you to go back often to explore other areas while unlocking new powers, Origins does the exact opposite.
It’s better to wait until you reach a tipping point when you have all the powers at your disposal, and only then go back and collect your treasures. Thoroughly explore areas as you go through them, but if you can’t access something, save it for later.
