The Bayonetta Franchise Games Rated ESRB MATURE 17 and Older

The Bayonetta games, starring the titular witch, are well-known and loved for their over-the-top action setpieces and dramatic flair, as well as their brutal difficulty. As you kill angelic armies and ancient monsters with high-heel guns and guillotines made from your own hair, you need to string together increasingly complex strings of attacks and actions. As each game adds new and ever-more outrageous ways to dispatch your enemies, from supercharged moves to huge beasts controlled via dance, it's always the marriage of the strange and absurd with the high-skill combat that stands out.
