File this one under “WTF News.” As shown in the final Super Smash Bros. Video Presentation, Bayonetta will be joining the fray. Fast forward to 18:40 in the video to witness everyone’s favourite Umbra Witch in action. The video was shared in a tweet from Nintendo of America, which also featured the gorgeous artwork below.
Aside from Solid Snake, she’s the only character from an M-rated series to be featured as a fighter. I guess it makes sense, seeing as Nintendo acquired the Bayonetta franchise from Sega and all. And by the looks of it, she’s even getting her own stage, complete with a giant flouting snake demon. And just like in her own games, her hair can transform into a giant, er, hairy monster. “Don’t mess with a witch” indeed.

Her inclusion comes as a result of demand from fans, so it’s great to see how Nintendo clearly respects fan feedback.
Bayonetta will be coming to Super Smash Bros. in February.
