You don’t necessarily need to have played the first Bayonetta to get a grasp of the sequel’s plot. There are concepts and ideas that the two share, but generally speaking, you can go into Bayonetta 2 fresh knowing the basics. Firstly, there are three worlds: Human World, Paradiso (Heaven) and Inferno (Hell). Each world is disturbing in their own right with battles that seem to be endless. Our protagonist, Bayonetta, is an Umbral Witch who uses the dark arts to do her bidding. After her friend Jeanne is sucked into Inferno, she is off to save her, all while discovering a larger plot with the newly-introduced Loki. She travels to the Holy Mountain of Fimbulventr to drop into Inferno and save her friend, all while fighting off Angels and Demons.
