However, this article will serve as the hub of details, information, and the latest on this new character. So, be sure to keep checking back and read on below to see everything we know about Bayonetta 3’s Viola character in this guide which is packed with information.
Bayonetta 3 Viola character guide
In Bayonetta 3, Viola is a brand new playable character. Viola is a witch in training and she appears to have a greater sense of the threat the world is facing than Bayonetta. That threat is the new Homunculi enemies and large Infernal Demons.
In a scene from the trailer which introduces here, it also appears that Rodin knows or did know of Viola at some point in the past. Viola is also accompanied by her feline companion Chesire.
In addition to summoning Chesire to fight with here, Viola wields a sword and magical darts. Her approach to combat is different to Bayonetta as she can activate Witch Time by blocking attacks at the right time.
We still have a few months until the Bayonetta 3 release date in October, so we should see more of Viola before then. Hopefully, Platinum Games also expands upon her character and details how she will play as well!
