Bayonetta is part of a massive content-drop set to release on the Nintendo Switch this week. This week’s updates and eShop buys also include new DLC for Fire Emblem Warriors, and the platformer “Fe”. Players can also pick-up some indie games to keep them busy over the next few weeks.

Bayonetta will come with some Nintendo-themed style, players can dress Bayonetta up with four Nintendo-themed costumes (Princess Peach, Princess Daisy, Link and Samus Aran). Bayonetta will be available on February 16th, and is the major title releasing on the platform over the weekend. In “Bayonetta 2,” Bayonetta’s back and more powerful than ever. Players will be able to wield wild weapons and execute deadly moves – like the powerful Umbran Climax – to take out angels and demons in the critically acclaimed actioner. The Bayonetta 2 game also features an online and local wireless two-player cooperative mode in which players bet halos on their performance and work together.

As previously announced, you can get both Bayonetta games at a discounted rate. Purchase Bayonetta or Bayonetta 2 on Nintendo.com or Nintendo eShop and you will get a discount on your purchase of the other game. Once you purchase Bayonetta or Bayonetta 2 from Nintendo.com or the Nintendo eShop, and you’ll get an automatic discount applied at checkout when you go to buy the other title.

As we mentioned earlier, another popular title hitting the Switch this week is “Fe”. The game i a new type of platform adventure where the story is up to you to discover, without handholding, told wordlessly through the discoveries you make during gameplay. Run, climb and glide your way through a dark Nordic forest and explore its living, breathing ecosystem filled with secrets and mystical creatures. Fe will also be available on Feb. 16.

As for DLC, the Fire Emblem Warriors Season Pass will bring new playable characters, History Maps, costumes and more. Here’s what’s in the Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon pack: three new characters, three new History Maps, four new costumes, new armor break models, new support conversations, new weapons and new weapon attributes. If you already purchased the Season Pass, this DLC Pack is available to you at no additional cost. The Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon DLC Pack can be purchased on the official site. Note: new costumes, character-exclusive weapons and weapon attributes must be unlocked as rewards from playing through the new History Maps.
