Bayonetta 2 received some fabulous review scores when it launched and was packed full of content so it’s no wonder that Bayonetta 2 director Yusuke Hashimoto says that he has plenty of ideas racking around his brain for the next game in the series. Hashimoto was asked by Games Master magazine which Platinum Games sequel he would most like to work on and he swiftly replied that it would have to be the Bayonetta series.
A sequel to a Platinum title… I’d have to say Bayonetta 3. I have all kinds of ideas in my head for how to expand the world of Bayonetta in even more sequels, or maybe a spin-off!
A Bayonetta and Devil May Cry crossover would probably be an action fans dream and Capcom producer Rey Jimenez totally agrees with this. Jimenez says that if it ever happens then it would be a truly mind blowing event. However, Jimenez says that this is his official stance and not that of the company. Would you like to see a Devil May Cry and Bayonetta crossover title?
As a developer and a gamer I would love to do that and how that would happen, well let me just say to you that would be the most insane gonzo action game you would ever see with tag-team, back-and-forth, switching and combos with stylish Dante or whoever coming in and doing stuff. It would actually be a dream come true.
I’m sure with Capcom it’s possible to do really cool things, but I don’t know if this would ever happen, but I can’t deny that the thought of it would be totally mind blowing and epic.
Platinum Games has confirmed that it is working on a new game. The Bayonetta studio’s unannounced project is in the early phase of development and the actual announcement is pretty far in the future, according to producer Akiko Kuroda. Kuroda also teased that something related to Bayonetta could be developed in 2015. Platinum recently unveiled a Bayonetta 2-themed calendar.
“I’ve actually got a new title in the works as we speak! We’re working really hard to make it something people will absolutely want to play for themselves, so we hope to keep having the support of our fans in 2015!”
We all got rather excited when Platinum Games teased they had some Bayonetta related news for today, but it turns out we could have gotten excited for nothing. The company just posted a Bayonetta calendar to FaceBook showing that once again they can be master trolls. Oh well, I guess a calendar is better than nothing.
Everyone’s favourite Japanese developer Platinum Games seem to be teasing something special for Bayonetta 2 fans on Christmas Day. The team have taken to Twitter and Facebook to announce that they will have a present for everyone tomorrow. What this present is remains to be seen. Some people are speculating additional downloadable content while others keeping their expectations down and suggesting it’s a Christmas card.
It maybe wasn’t the hit that Platinum Games and Nintendo were hoping for but that hasn’t stopped Platinum Games from thanking Wii U owners who picked up Bayonetta 2. The thanks comes directly from Akiko Kuroda, who is the producer of the game. Here’s what Kuroda had to say to Wii U owners.
I was very happy and relieved to see the game was being so warmly welcomed all over the world, so I’m very grateful to all of you who picked it up!
Bayonetta 2 is out this week on the Wii U and US magazine Playboy has taken some time out to pay respect to the beloved series. Playmate Pamela Horton has celebrated the launch by dressing up as the saucy Bayonetta complete with her famous pistols. The game gathered some great review scores and currently sits at 91.
