FUNimation Entertainment has announced that the company has acquired the license for the Bayonetta: Bloody Fate anime film.
The story is described as:
Her name is Bayonetta. She is one of “the witches” – a huntress of Angels – and this is her only memory of the past. When she receives information that a clue may lie in waiting in the sacred city of Vigrid, Bayonetta sets out on a perilous journey.
En route, Bayonetta experiences a series of strange encounters with a mysterious lady who holds cryptic hints about her past, a male journalist who implicates Bayonetta in the death of his father and a young girl who openly adores her, referring to her as “mommy.”
What secrets do Bayonetta’s lost memory hold and what fate lies in waiting?
Fuminori Kizaki, the director of Bayonetta: Bloody Fate, will be a guest of honor at Anime Expo 2014, and will present a sneak peek of the English dub. The sneak peek will be followed a special Q&A session on July 5, 2014 at 8:15 p.m. PDT in Video 1.
