Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon – Review

Through the course of our Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon review content, we witness directly how Bayonetta was transformed into the entity it is today.

Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon is our new Bayonetta game that was an unexpected surprise following Bayonetta 3, which was launched last year and was the most action game of this year, in my opinion. It also has the style and gameplay that we could never have imagined.

Don’t be distracted by the hot people, the battle-hardened stance and the quick-paced action. The game Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon (I will only refer to it as Bayonetta Origins from now on) we’ll be immersed in the story of a young Cereza like a fairytale book set in a vivid world where we move between platforms through solving problems.

A Strange Adventure With Chesire

We’re going back to the time when the character we now know as Bayonetta was educated as a young girl named Cereza. The story follows one girl who is rejected due to her parents who belong to two opposing factions. Her father is exiled , and her mother is in prison. Cereza is a child who has nobody but the doll Chesire that was given to her by her mother. visited before she was transferred to a secure prison.

Living with Morgana who is an exiled witch, to learn how to train Umbra witch, Cereza isn’t even familiar with the most basic summoning methods. The girl who watches her struggle for her mom’s safety in the dreams of her gets a message from her mother that there’s a force waiting to be found in the forest that is forbidden to her.

In defiance of Morgana’s advice, Cereza goes to the woods. When she’s in trouble, she performs the demon summoning dance that she isn’t able to perform in a proper manner until now. The demon that is summoned is able to stop the enemies however, since it’s not in control it snatches Cereza’s doll Chesire and is unable to destroy it. She is actually planning to fight Cereza also but because of some reason she does not understand but she is aware that she is bonded to Cereza, and she is not able to fight him.

Looking for the strength for her to rescue her mom Cereza as well as the demon are in need of help to get returning to their Inferno from where she was born, begin to collaborate. We follow the tale of the unlikely partnership of both the monster and Cereza who got the name Chesire due to the toy it came in and their relationship due to the things they experienced together as they moved forward.

The story that is told with the aid of a storyteller can be very entertaining. The main story is already around 14 hours, which isn’t likely to be boring.

Controlling Two Characters Simultaneously

It is said that the Bayonetta game can be described as a show that is full of pure action, in which hair and bullets fly in the sky, while characters make impressive speeches when they are slamming their opponents. When you consider the character’s attitudes or speeches, as well as the use of their hair for clothing while casting spells, it’s evident that Bayonetta Origins is full of content that could be described as sexually attractive. Bayonetta Origins puts all this aside.

Cereza and the Lost Demon isn’t a typical action game instead, it’s a puzzle-platform style which Nintendo gamers are comfortable with. There are two characters that we can control, Cereza and Chesire. We also check both of them at the same time, not in a sequential manner. When the two characters appear spread too separated, the power of Chesire is exhausted, and they aren’t able to move too far from one another. We control Cereza using the left joycon, while Chesire is directed using his right-hand joycon.

Cereza The principal character in Bayonetta Origins Cereza is a novice who isn’t even aware of how to summon her summoned demon back. Naturally, it’s impossible for him to take on an active role in the wars. It is up to Chesire to fight off enemies and Cereza can use simple spells to keep them from attacking for a short period of time. When we defeat enemies using Chesire during battle however, we must be aware of not getting assaulted by Cereza. Similar to the areas where we summon demons Bayonetta 3, care is required.

In the absence of combat the Chesire is able transform into her doll appearance and thus traverse small areas that she would not normally traverse in our bodies. There are areas where there are plants (rosemary) that she will never cross, in these instances she is able to use alternate routes using Cereza. The puzzle-like part of the game is usually comprised of these elements. As we advance through the game, we acquire new elemental capabilities and can access areas we’ve never been before.

The game’s gameplay is a bit difficult at first however, once I got comfortable with controlling 2 characters simultaneously at simultaneously I had a lot of enjoyment. If you’ve ever played Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons previously it, you’ll be able to guess what’s in store for you. The characters that are controlled by various joycons allow you to play as two players. While the characters aren’t as effective when playing by themselves it is possible to have hilarious and controversial scenes like “help me, they are chasing me”. Also the creators believed that the game could be played by just one player with two characters and this is evident.

We stated that the narrative of the game takes around 14 hours. During the time, I didn’t have a self-repetition incident to the point that could make you exhausted from the game. Alongside the main plot it is possible to discover places hidden in the surroundings as well as rescue Wisp and play the illusion section (Tir the Na nOgs) to beat time, and receive numerous rewards. It’s possible to play for around 20 hours of gaming time by taking on everything. On the other side, I was unable to find time to purchase the extra components due to the fact that Octopath Traveler 2 was waiting.

Storybook Exclusive to Switch

Bayonetta Origins has done a excellent job with its visuals. We explore colorful forests, visit regions altered due to the magic that are fairies. We also visit dark dungeons. In each, you gain various abilities. The game gives the illusion of being in a storybook for children that has been that has been distorted by evil creatures. The animations are stunning and the cutscenes that are presented as book pages are gorgeous and the characters look adorable as well as scary. I also loved the little particulars, such as the animations that Chesire as well as Cereza are heard in the point of saving.

The game runs flawlessly in handheld mode as well as when docked. I played with ease without troubles with stuttering or slowing down. There’s no issue such like “graphics like mud in hand mode” which we see in certain games. This could be a pity to see to be a Nintendo Switch exclusive game anyway.

I typically play games using Japanese dubbing. I’m not a fan of English voices that fail to do a good job at voicing children’s characters. The idea behind this particular game was be playing Japanese and after I had forgotten to create the scene before starting this game I decided that I’d play small amount and then alter itlater. I’m happy I decided to do. The storyteller and Cereza as well as the storyteller created an extremely successful voiceover. Jenny Lee, who plays the role of storyteller is also the voice of Chesire and does very well and effectively.

The mood created by the graphics style and the effective voice-overs that I enjoy greatly, is complemented by excellent music. Music that is calm when you walk about or tense tunes while fighting off enemies, and a the short music of Zelda playing while opening chests. Chest music may even bring some pleasant surprises in some sections. Additionally there are some songs that are reinterpretations from the original music from the Bayonetta series. This gives an entirely different experience when you listen to these.
