Twenty years ago, from a coffin submerged beneath a gloomy lake, a mysterious woman awoke.
Unable to recall her past, or even her own name, only a single memory of her unknown origin was left impressed upon her: the horrifying "witches' power" to summon forth ferocious demons and annihilate the servants of heaven.
Returning to life in the modern world after centuries of absence, Bayonetta followed the clues of her hazy memories, eventually reaching the remote European city of Vigrid. Unimpeded by countless legions of angels assailing her...Fateful meetings drawing out lost memories...What lies ahead in wait for Bayonetta...?
Bayonetta: A mysterious witch returned to life in the modern world after hundreds of years of slumber. Wielding titanic magical powers, her battle against the forces of heaven continues, the reasons for doing so lost in the mists of her past. Armed with the Scarborough Fair, her favorite set of handguns equipped to both hands and feet, she practices the "bullet arts," a combination of gunfire and melee attacks. She can also perform the Wicked Weave - deadly attacks unleashed by summoning demonic entities through her magical hair that can easily devour entire hordes of angels.
Jeanne: A mysterious woman with a similar battle style and powers to Bayonetta. Often appearing along Bayonetta's course, she provokes her with an icy stare. She obviously holds some information about Bayonetta's past but her ultimate goal is unknown. Wielding her own set of four black handguns, she must be in pursuit of Bayonetta.
Luka: A journalist who is chasing Bayonetta to expose her true identity. His fate is tied closely to that of Bayonetta, which involves much ill feeling. Unlike most journalists, he has a special gadget under his sleeve which is capable of firing a grappling hook to access dangerous sites. His greater qualities derive from tremendous luck and an upbeat personality.
