Once upon a time, there was a young witch named Cereza…

Long before this trainee of the dark arts would come to be called Bayonetta, she took a fateful journey into the forbidden Avalon Forest. Alongside her was Cheshire, her very first demon, possessing Cereza’s stuffed toy. Play as both Cereza and Cheshire and search through the treacherous forest to look for the power to save Cereza’s mother.

Guide their fates

Control both Cereza and Cheshire simultaneously using the left and right sides of the controller.



This lonely young girl was born from a bond between the Lumen Sages of light and the Umbra Witches of dark. As relations between these two clans are strictly forbidden, Cereza has been labelled an outcast. Her greatest wish is to become strong enough to one day help her imprisoned mother, Rosa.



A demon summoned by Cereza on the night of a full moon who somehow found himself channeled into her stuffed toy. Reluctantly, he agrees to accompany her until they find a way to send him back to Inferno.

Solve puzzles together

Smartly balance Cereza’s and Cheshire’s individual strengths to solve puzzles and create safe passage through this enchanted world.

Magical might

Cereza’s Witch Pulse can transform the environment, and her magic also has the power to dispel devious illusions. She can walk through the patches of rosemary that Cheshire cannot.

Cut through clutter

Cheshire’s sharp claws excel at cutting through the rough of the forest to create pathways.

Hug Mode

Cheshire can safely retreat into the cuddly doll hosting him. Cereza can then carry, extend, and toss Cheshire in this form—helpful for reaching spaces the unleashed Cheshire might not otherwise be able to.

Fend off fiends

While Cereza has a few spells up her sleeve and Cheshire has sharp claws, the two will need to combine forces if they are to defeat the dangers lurking in Avalon Forest.

Fight as Cereza

Using the left side of the controller, Cereza can bind enemies with her magic and uncork helpful potions. Her magic gauge allows her to use Umbran Arts.

Fight as Cheshire

Using the right side of the controller, Cheshire can slash and chomp foes, as well as change forms. His magic gauge allows him to unleash powerful abilities more often.

Elemental, my dear

Cheshire can acquire different elemental forms. While exploring, these powers can allow the young witch and her demon companion access to new areas. In battle, they can be used to devastating effect.

Explore a fantastical world

Avalon Forest is as beautiful as it is beastly. Be sure to stop and smell the roses in this whimsical world, but don’t tarry too long—the forest has a taste for lost witches.

Learn useful skills

Apply certain collected materials to the Skill Tree to upgrade your abilities or acquire new ones. Collect Vitality Petals to increase Cereza’s maximum health.

Discover its secrets

The mysterious Avalon Forest is full of hidden treasures. Explore every nook and enrich your adventure.

Fairy-tale figures

Meet some of the fantastical characters that Cereza and Cheshire encounter on their journey together.
