The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu contains a special interview with Platinum Games Hideki Kamiya and Atsushi Inaba. The team got together to discuss the recent Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle and of course they had to be quizzed about Bayonetta 3 for the Nintendo Switch. Speaking about the game, Kamiya said that development is currently going smoothly. Here’s some choice quotes from the issue:

  • Atsushi Inaba, game designer: “The first game I was involved in development with at Platinum was Bayonetta.”
  • Hideki Kamiya, director: “Bayonetta was originally developed for Xbox 360, and we didn’t even think about developing it for PlayStation 3.”
  • Inaba: “We didn’t know which console’s players would enjoy our games more, so we prioritized the console that was easier to develop for. We couldn’t afford to think about a multiplatform release.
  • Kamiya: “I remember there was a great big cheer at the development studio when we tested out Bayonetta summoning demons and losing her clothes.”
  • Inaba: “Not in a dirty way. It was a joyous cheer to celebrate that our ideas all fit together well.”
  • Kamiya: “I hope Viewtiful Joe will also get some focus. That was the first game I included slow motion in. We added Dante on the PS2 version.”
  • Kamiya: “Bayonetta 3‘s development is progressing smoothly. Actually, there’s a lot of info hidden in the teaser announcement in 2017.”

  1. Good to hear. Really looking forward to finally seeing it once they finally have enough where they feel comfortable doing so. I know they’ve had a lot of different games on their plat lately.

    1. They are saying the same thing for 2 years.

  2. Ok but can we see something? We know they are developing the game but can they show at least a gameplay trailer? I don’t want to see another MP4 treatment.

      1. I’m personally tired to always read “The development team is doing great and is making the game really good”. At this point it was better to not announce the game so early. They announced it in 2017 and we are in 2020 without a single gameplay video.

  3. Who cares. The game’s in development hell and not coming out until 2077 as far as I’m concerned, since they apparently are physically unable to show us any gameplay after 3 YEARS!!!

    1. In what way is 3 years ( its was two years btw if you’re gonna complain like a dumb child at least be accurate)development hell?

      1. Because they haven’t even shown any gameplay after all this time…which isn’t exactly a great display of confidence for your upcoming videogame now is it

  4. Could this be something they’re trying to self-publish now? That’s what they’re doing with the Wonderful 101 Kickstarter, testing the waters. Was this their plan all along?

    1. W101 was a special case… Bayonetta2+3 and astral chain was confirmed nintendo exclusive nintendo allowed them to port their w101 ip to other systems since it was a flop in every way meamwhile bayo2 wasnt

  5. I know there’s alot of people bitching here but I honestly don’t care. I’d rather they just wait until the games ready

    1. What? If you have a cancelled games theres literally zero reason to not come out and say it isnt cancelled. What are you even talking about?
