Bayonetta was released 10 years ago, on October 29th, 2009. Thanks to the continual support of fans over the years, the series has flourished on a variety of platforms and is still going strong a decade later.
Bayonetta was going to be included in the Sega crossover kart-racing game Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed as a playable character, but according to a forum post from the developers, she was scrapped because the developers had trouble trying to keep her in-character without the ESRB/PEGI rating potentially going up. Funny how Bayonetta was able to be included in SSB4 & SSBU. Nintendo somehow managed to get Sega’s character into their own crossover before Sega themselves. Hell Nintendo even somehow managed to get their own characters into Project X Zone 2. a crossover primarily featuring Namco, Capcom, and Sega characters before Sega could include their own Bayonetta. I wish Sega would include her in more of their crossover titles. Dx2 Shin Megami Tensei: Liberation is a start at least.
