Bayonetta And Platinum Games Were Discussed In Latest Famitsu Issue

Japanese magazine Famitsu celebrated the tenth anniversary of Platinum Games by interviewing some of the studio’s staff members in its latest issue. Among those interviewed were Hideki Kamiya, Yusuke Hashimoto, Tatsuya Minami and Atsushi Inaba.

The interview touched upon Bayonetta‘s directing process. Hideki Kamiya’s style in directing was so harsh and tense that many employees felt they didn’t want to work with him again. However, he wasn’t the only one. Most of the directors for Platinum would say similar things.

Star Fox Zero was briefly mentioned when the group discussed about Platinum Games collaborating on existing IPs with others. The IP holders let Platinum handle the action gameplay and this enables the studio to have plenty of freedom in developing the games. Tatsuya Minami said he felt that this is the case because the IP holders trust the developing power that Platinum Games has. The original plan was to make original IPs, but Platinum has gotten so many offers to make collaboration games that they now work on those too. In fact, the interview revealed that they are at work with collaborations that have yet to be announced at this time.

Platinum has four titles lined up for 2016, including the Nintendo Wii U titles Star Fox Zero and Project Guard.

    1. You’re just one of the few who have missed out on thr LIMITED EDITION. If you were smart enough to buy it day one, there wouldn’t be a problem. Be happy that Bayonetta 2 is coming back to store shelves in North America next week. The original Bayonetta HD is still available now at the eShop.

      1. ~*Let the shackles be released!*~ Chains of Lucifer X3 ~*Or fall forever!*~

        ~*You’d have a point… if it was even called a Limited Edition when it was first released. You get an E for Effort in trying to damage control for Nintendo, though. Now if you got an article somewhere where they specifically warned us it was going to be a limited edition thing & it was an article widely posted on multiple websites, I’ll give you an A for successfully defending Nintendo.*~

        1. Damage control my ass, Narutard’s sloppy seconds. I don’t defend… I speak the truth. You have to be level headed human being to get it day one.

          1. ~*Let the shackles be released!*~ Chains of Lucifer X3 ~*Or fall forever!*~

            ~*I thought you’d be civil & actually try to prove me wrong with facts but since you only got assumptions about who I am while claiming to “speak the truth”, I think it’s safe to say you can’t prove me wrong because you have no facts behind your words. Are you sure you aren’t just confused because they released a UK only Limited Edition of Bayonetta 2 with Bayonetta 1 included?*~

    1. Same. I’d love to have another game made by Platinum on the Wii U, or maybe as a launch title for the NX. They seem to have a pretty good relationship with Nintendo, it’s not out of the realm of possibility.
      Then again, they seem to be on good terms with Microsoft and Activision too.

  1. Bayonetta 2 was released as standard edition, believe me this game has stunning visuals, top gameplay, epic boss battles nothing good as this game on any platform, I own this game myself and trust me it is a awesome game on Wiiu.
