The Bayonetta voice actress opens up about the shocking reason she’s not back for the threesome

BAYONETTA 3 is about to be released, but the original voice actress is calling on fans to boycott the game after revealing the reason she won’t appear in the new game.

Voice actress Hellena Taylor has played the role of Umbra Witch since the original game launched in 2009.

Bayonetta 3 will be released on October 28th.

This includes the voice lines for Bayonetta in other games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

However, she was replaced for the third game in the series, which fans have been waiting eight years to play.

Taking to Twitter, Taylor revealed that developer Platinum only offered her $4,000 (£3.5,000) to reprise her role.

SAGAFTRA, the guild for actors including voice actors in the United States, has compiled a list of the minimum wages they consider fair for their actors’ work.

The recommended minimum for a day’s work, around four hours in the studio, is $1,000 (£900).

While the first Bayonetta game only took four days to shoot, the sequel has many more voice lines and presumably lasted longer.

Platinum has said Bayonetta 3 will be the longest game in the series, meaning the pay should be above the offer Taylor claims she received.

Taylor was replaced by Jennifer Hale, one of the most prolific and highest-paid actresses in the industry.

We don’t know how much Hale was offered for the role, but it would be unusual for her to accept an offer like Taylor’s.

Bayonetta 3 Executive Director Hideki Kamiya tweeted about the incident following Taylor’s announcement.

He wrote: “Sad and deplorable for the attitude of untruth. That’s all I can say now.

“By the way, beware of my rules!”

The last part of the tweet refers to the director blocking fans on Twitter who repeat questions or don’t interact with him politely.

While Kamiya claims that what Taylor says isn’t true, he hasn’t since clarified which parts of her statement are false.
