Platinum Games co-founder Hideki Kamiya recently chatted with Video Games Chronicle about the company’s yet to be revealed fifth announcement. Mr. Kamiya stressed that the announcement will be smaller in scale than previous announcements, but he hopes it will bring a big smile to fan’s faces. He also said that the announcement was meant to be made earlier, but the coronavirus pandemic has understandably interfered with the company’s plans.
“We want to reveal it at the right time, but what we can say at the moment is that this was always intended as the ‘Platinum Four’, so I think that the expectations should be for something extra,” he said. “That being said, this is something that we’ve had in the works for a while.
“We wanted to get this out a little sooner but then the coronavirus happened, which I know is a common excuse, but we hope that when we can start talking about it, it will bring a smile to our fans’ faces and we’ll get a good reaction like, ‘ah, we love those Platinum guys!’”
“If we had to choose one end of the spectrum, then I’d probably say it’s something a little smaller in scale. But it’s still something I’m hoping fans will get a kick out of.”
