Bayonetta 3: The Devil May Cry Reference Only Hardcore Fans Noticed
After a long hiatus, the "Bayonetta" series is back with "Bayonetta 3." On top of providing the fast-paced combo-based combat fans know and love, "Bayonetta 3" also features a ton of fun Easter eggs for players to discover. Gamers recently identified one of these subtle "Bayonetta 3" secrets that only hardcore "Devil May Cry" fans will notice.
As showcased by Adorable Laurie on Twitter, the intro cutscene for the Phantom spider boss in "Devil May Cry" is strikingly similar to the spider boss intro in "Bayonetta 3." Not only do the cutscenes share similar shots, but some of the dialogue is also nearly identical, such as the boss referencing how small the character is compared to the ginormous spider.
Game developer Hideki Kamiya created Capcom's "Devil May Cry" series, as well as PlatinumGames' "Bayonetta" series. Kamiya left Capcom to form PlatinumGames in 2006, and it's easy to see how his time developing "Devil May Cry" impacted his vision for "Bayonetta" as the games feature many of the same mechanics.
