Nintendo is giving Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon fans a behind the scenes look with a recording video for the theme song. This is Le Chéile i bhForaois Sholas na Gealaí, otherwise known as Together in the Moonlit Forest.
The performance comes from Lauren McGlynn. Hitomi Kurokawa at PlatinumGames handled the music while Michael McGlynn wrote the lyrics. The recording took place at Abbey Road Studios.
Here’s some information about Bayonetta Origins:
Long before this trainee of the dark arts would come to be called Bayonetta, she took a fateful journey into the forbidden Avalon Forest. Alongside her was Cheshire, her very first demon, possessing Cereza’s stuffed toy. Play as both Cereza and Cheshire and search through the treacherous forest to look for the power to save Cereza’s mother.
Control both Cheshire and Cereza to solve puzzles and fend off fiends
Any good story has a lesson about teamwork, no? In this tale, Cereza and Cheshire coordinate their efforts to fight faeries and solve puzzles. Use the Left Joy-Con controller to move Cereza and bind enemies with her magic. With the Right Joy-Con controller, move Cheshire to slash and chomp foes.
Turn the pages of Cereza’s story as you explore the enchanting, storybook-inspired Avalon Forest
Avalon Forest is just as beautiful as it is beastly. Each new area looks like it has been painted carefully by hand. Fully narrated story scenes are told through the vibrantly illustrated pages of a storybook. Be sure to stop and smell the roses in this whimsical world, but don’t tarry too long—the forest has a taste for lost witches.
