She is one of ‘the witches’ – a huntress of Angels – and this is her only memory of the past. When she receives information that a clue may lie in waiting in the sacred city of Vigrid, Bayonetta sets out on a perilous journey. En route, Bayonetta experiences a series of strange encounters with a mysterious lady who holds cryptic hints about her past, a male journalist who implicates Bayonetta in the death of his father and a young girl who openly adores her, referring to her as ‘mommy’. What secrets do Bayonetta’s lost memory hold and what fate lies in waiting?
