The developer for Bayonetta 3 tweeted this right before the Nintendo Direct. So here's where the plot thickens - he made the "demand" for getting a new Joycon with a D-Pad.... and then BOOM! Not even an entire month goes by and HORI announces on their website they're releasing a new Left-side Joycon with a D-Pad for the Switch.
Nintendo Switch won't get Sega's precious gems in up-coming release. The solution to this problem can be Nintendo's Virtual Console.
