PlatinumGames is back with another installment in their Bayonetta 3 dev blog series, and this time around we get the fourth installment in their character designs feature.

Designer Mari Shimazaki helms the feature this time around, and she’s the lead character designer and art director for Bayonetta 3. In this installment, Shimazaki shows off character designs and final models for the new “Demon Masquerade” system.

Shimazaki says that as the number of weapons and Infernal Demons continued to increase, it was starting to get a little difficult to remember which demons Bayonetta was contracted with. This was just one of the reasons PlatinumGames thought it could be a good idea to have the Infernal Demon’s power physically represented on Bayonetta herself. And thus the Demon Masquerade system was born.

Pikachu and Gengar Squishmallows back in stock at Walmart

Putting the squeeze on your wallet

It’s been a pretty wild ride for the Pikachu and Gengar Squishmallows. First, the duo hit the Pokemon Center website and instantly sold out. Then we saw these Squishmallows pop up at Walmart locations, only to be removed a few days later. Thankfully, the pair has now returned to Walmart, and you can head into your local location to pick them up.

For those who don’t know, when the Pikachu and Gengar Squishmallows first popped up in Walmart, they were put out on the floor earlier than intended. This led to Walmart pulling the duo from shelves and holding onto them until the originally-intended release date. Looks like that date ended up being February 1st, 2023.

These Squishmallows are sure to sell out quickly in stores, so if you want to snag a pair, it’s a good idea to rush out to your local Walmart as soon as possible.
