What's happening, guys? Do you think that Bayonetta from the Bayonetta video game franchise will become a playable DLC guest character exclusively in the Nintendo Switch version of Mortal Kombat 11, but as part of a Kombat Pack? This is because Nintendo owns parts of content in Bayonetta 2 and 3, the video games that Nintendo published, and that Sega declined to publish and fund. If not, please let me know the reason why not?

Wait, MK is coming back to Nintendo? Hopefully they won't abandon it midway like they did with Injustice for the Wii U.

Well Mortal Kombat 11 is gonna be on the Switch April 23 (ww) and May 10 (Europe, delayed reasons).

As for the question itself, not sure. I haven't seen talk/speculation about her being in as DLC, except that Shaggy meme though lol.

I've heard that MK as a franchise is actually very unpopular in Japan, so I heavily doubt that would even happen.

Isn't that mostly due to the "extreme violence against humans" thing like what happens with God of War?

EDIT: Clarification.

Being a franchise of Western origin certainly doesn't help that, either (compare and contrast Devil May Cry, Soul Calibur, etc.) .

That's one factor. There's also other reasons ranging from: a perceived lack of authentic mythology/lore, people finding the gameplay and visuals not as complex as other fighters, to a downward spiral in quality after the third installment.
