As promised Video Games Chronicle has published its interview with Platinum Games and of course the topic of the highly anticipated Bayonetta 3 has come up. Speaking to the publication Hideki Kamiya, the director at Platinum Games, suggested that fans should forget about the upcoming Switch game and then when information surfaces it will come as a nice surprise. Here’s what Mr. Kamiya said:
Kamiya, here’s the inevitable Bayonetta 3 question: You were recently quoted as saying you’d like to provide a public update on the game this year. Is that right?
Kamiya: It’s not really our position to say, but… it’s January. We’ve got to have something come out, right? I guess it’s safe to expect that something will come out. There’s still a lot of the year left is what I’m saying.
By “update”, do you mean something more substantial than another CGI logo?
Kamiya: (Laughs) I understand it’s driving the fans crazy! In light of that, my suggestion would be that maybe we should all reset and forget about Bayonetta 3. Then when something finally does happen, it will be a nice surprise, won’t it?
Anything happening would’ve already been a surprise
Anything can happen soon. Only time will tell.
It sounds as though they probably may of wished they didn’t have the reveal so, so long ago as it’s one of those games that’s just gotta be right.
Best to wait though, so that when it is ready it’ll be awesome. There’s a fair challenge in there to better the previous entries.
This has always been my one of my few problems with platinum and Japanese game development as a whole, the total lack of transparency. If the game not coming out or being shown off anytime soon, that’s totally fine, JUST COME OUT AND SAY IT. You get alot less questions on” when” if you tell people “hey we revealed it way to early and we wanna take our time so we won’t have anything show anytime soon.
It’s almost like Nintendo when they revealed prime 4 at e3, but then they had the decency to say that it was pretty much scrapped and going back to retro ( which is actually a good thing).
I don’t know, platinum isn’t quite the workforce of Nintendo so a game that’s got a lot of living up to do is gona take time I spose
Wholeheartedly agree. Their communication is atrocious
