Help Cereza and Chesire on their exciting journey.
You’re here because you haven’t started Bayonetta Origins yet, and you want to be as ready as possible. Or you’ve already finished the game and are now just hanging out to see if other people have the same feelings and regrets as you.
No matter what, there are some things you wish you had known before you started if it would have saved you time. From working out the map to knowing where to put your skill points, there are probably some choices you wish you could make again to make your second trip through the Avalon Forest much easier.
You Don’t Need To Play The Other Games
If you put this prequel on hold because you wanted to play the other Bayonetta games first, you’ll be glad to hear that you don’t need to know anything about the other games to enjoy this one. In fact, it’s a good place to start for anyone who wants to learn more about Bayonetta and her world.
Almost everything about this spin-off is different, from how you fight to how the art looks. Not only that, but Bayonetta fans will be surprised to see that Cereza hasn’t always been the powerful witch they’ve known since the first Bayonetta game. Even the strongest can have humble roots.
Don’t Rush, Except When In Tir Na Nog
This game is all about taking in the beautiful scenery around you, so there’s no need to rush — unless you’ve stumbled into a Tir na Nog location by chance. All of the rewards are worth getting platinum time records for these tasks.
If you can beat them all in platinum, it won’t take you long to finish the map, assuming you also looked for every item drop and wisp in the area. Still, it’s a good idea to take your time and look around each level to see if you missed anything.
Tinker With The Environment
If you want to move through the forest, you’ll need the heart of an explorer, especially when you’re dealing with a layered environment. Some of the maps in this game can be as simple as Leafy Nook, which doesn’t have as many entrances, exits, or parts.
Then there’s Sunspeckled Grove, which has many ways in and out and even parts that will make you feel dizzy. You just need to be interested and use Cereza and Cheshire’s magic to connect with the world, but be careful about putting Cereza in deeper water without lily pads.
Elements Are Essential
As you move through the game, you’ll be able to use different elemental skills that can help you and your demon plush friend. But these things aren’t just for killing enemies; they are also important for getting around easily.
Getting power over You can drink water and move around on lily pads by moving through the water. Getting the stone part can make it easier to find things that are buried underground. It’s important to know how to use them to get around Avalon Forest.
Potions are great, and if you’re a good gamer, you’ll save up a good buff and use it when you need it. That means you’re probably making potions to stock up, which isn’t a bad idea, but it’s not necessary either, so you might want to save that baked gecko for something else.
There are many chests all over the bush where you can find many of these potions. Making too many potions isn’t the best use of your resources unless you suddenly run out of a certain type.
Take Care Of Cheshire
If you’ve been a Bayonetta fan for a while, you’re used to beating the game by mashing buttons and sometimes avoiding attacks by pure luck. If not, you probably already know how to dodge and how to use Cereza’s attacks from the first game to the third.
But you should be careful when you play with Cereza and Cheshire. If Cheshire takes too much damage, he will lose his strength and turn back into a stuffed animal. Even though Cheshire gets stronger as your trip goes on, it’s still best to be careful around him.
Don’t Ignore Wisps
Here, good deeds are always repaid, so you might as well help the poor wisps who are stuck underwater or behind big sheets of ice.On the way, you can see a lot of these wisps just hanging out by a fairy device. Helping out takes less than a minute, and they’ll give you all kinds of things in return.
Some of the wisps are out of the way, but exploring the map to get them helps you find other goodies you haven’t gotten yet and shows you places you didn’t know about before.
Collect As You Go
It goes without saying that you shouldn’t just leave the inferno fruit or moon pearl you found and think you’ll get them later. The same goes for chests that are in your way, since they will help you get better and improve your skills.
You might not be able to finish the map on your first trip to a place because you don’t have access to the right things. But if you can clear a way, destroy roots, or even grow a flower to reach an item on a level you haven’t been to before, you should.
Invest On The Right Skills
Onyx Roses and Moon Pearls are hard to get, so you should use them on the best skills you can. Still, many skills don’t come cheap. This is especially true of the best skills, which you can check out here.
These skills are useful not only in battle, but also when you are exploring and have to solve problems that require Cereza and Cheshire to work well together. You wouldn’t want to spend all of your Onyx Roses and Moon Pearls on skills that don’t help the duo as much as other skills.
Re-Explore Areas After The Main Story
If you think you’re finished, you’re not. You’ll want to go to extra places to learn more about the story, and there are also places you’ll want to go to just to finish Drive Mad game. Not only that, but you can’t really go to some places until you’ve finished the main story.
If you want to get more outfits, you should go back to other places to either finish time challenges faster or get more outfits. It’s fun to go back to places you’ve already been to see if you missed anything. You might save a wisp or two by chance.
