"Experience Being a Umbra Witch with Bayonetta Online"
Bayonetta Online is a new Nintendo MMO dungeon crawler which revolves around Umbra Witches and Wizards cooperating.
Years ago, before the events of Bayonetta 2, Lord Morklin has discovered the legendary relic, the Halo of Otherworldy Powers, which asks for the owner to wish whatever he wants to do. Discovering this, squads consisting of Umbra Witches and Wizards are formed to take action against the Espen Witches. (the witches on the eastern region and study more on engineering)
At first, when you start the game, you get to create your Umbran Witch/Wizard. First it asks you if you want a boy or girl. Then it asks you what color your hair wants to be, then you choose your hairstyle, and then you set off into the world of Bayonetta Online.
You start off on the Umbran City. At here, there's a Mission Lobby, where you take missions there to ascend on ranks. When you ascend on ranks, you get to be able to use larger weapons and learn new skills from your skill tree. The missions could be dialogue, rescue missions, and some of them have bosses. There's a Umbran Forge, where players need to use to build larger weapons, and a Skill Lab, where you unlock more skills on your Skill Tree.
Combat is difference. Unlike other Bayonetta games, you can equip machine guns and sniper rifles. Guns are slower, and melee weapons have various combos inside. Guns, however do not have combos at all. Up to 3 weapons can be equipped. and you can use the L and R buttons to change your skills, and press A to charge, and launch your special attack.
You need to get halos and parts to build larger weapons, and you later on need to promote your witch/wizard to take on the more harder tasks.
On the missions, up to 6 players can join. Next to the players is the internet connection icon.
- Green: This player's connection is very well.

- Red: This player's connection is poor.
