Platinum Games has repeatedly mentioned that they wish to own their IPs and it seems that the Bayonetta games are the next on their list. The company’s head Atsushi Inaba says that Platinum Games has a desired interest in self publishing the Bayonetta video game series. With their recent investment from Chinese behemoth Tencent it will be interesting to see what happens in the future with the series.
But noted that it is purely a desire, and not a statement on whether or not the company could actually do it. He added that Nintendo and Sega currently both own half of the intellectual property rights for the series, and that if Platinum Games were to self-publish Bayonetta through crowdfunding, it would require a high amount of money compared to the company’s recently-launched Kickstarter campaign for The Wonderful 101: Remastered game.anime news network
