Bayonetta 2 isn’t the only thing Bayonetta hitting store shelves next week: The awesomely over-the-top anime Bayonetta: Bloody Fate will be released as well—and we at Kotaku have an exclusive look at the film’s first nine minutes in English.

Bayonetta: Bloody Fate is a theatrical retelling of the first game’s plot and is pretty much exactly what you’d expect in a Bayonetta anime. For more info, be sure to check out our review.

Bayonetta: Bloody Fate was released in Japanese theaters on November 23, 2013. It can be watched dubbed or subbed on Funimation. It will be released digitally and on DVD and Blu-ray in the US on October 21, 2014.
