A rumour has recently surfaced that suggests Nintendo are funding the Beyond Good and Evil sequel. The rumour also suggests that Nintendo have secured the title as an NX exclusive for 2017.
The rumour was submitted to Destructoid, with an initial source as Alexander Maier, a writer for Dual Pixels that published Geno’s NX rumours last weekend. Alexander was provided with a large document from Geno that was then passed on to Destructoid to assess. Destructoid also reached out to a second source who gave similar information with some of the bullet pointed information crossing over the two sources.
According to the rumour, the game’s current title is Beyond Good and Evil: The Prejudices of Philosophers. Apparently Nintendo is looking to follow similar footsteps of the way Bayonetta 2 was handled, putting money into the production and development of a title that has been in limbo for a long time and securing it for the NX, the same way Bayonetta 2 was secured for the Wii U.
Destructoid also pointed out that in a Dev’s Play video for Beyond Good and Evil, Miyamoto’s name was dropped a couple of times when talking about the development of Beyond Good and Evil 2, with the mention of “it’s good enough for Miyamoto” amongst other comments, this discussion takes place after the 48 minute point in the clip.
