Set in a fictional city in Europe, the game centers on its title character, Bayonetta, who uses pistols and magical attacks to defeat enemies.
The game has five difficulty settings; its two easiest settings contain a game mode playable with only one button, similar to a mode used in Devil May Cry.
Its developers designed its characters with modern style and fashion in mind, and composed for it a largely upbeat soundtrack.
