Platinum Games director, Hideki Kamiya, has said on Twitter that despite contrary reports, Nintendo has never explicitly mentioned censorship for any of the Bayonetta series of games on the Nintendo Switch family of systems. He said that there have been times when they occasionally butt heads about other things, but that’s usually about the development side of things. The company has produced Bayonetta, Bayonetta 2 and long-awaited Bayonetta 3 for the Nintendo Switch, which arrives in October.
“I see a lot of people bring up Nintendo when discussing the nudity in Bayonetta, but during our time with the Bayonetta 1 port, Bayonetta 2 and Bayonetta 3, the only suggestion we received was regarding the Link costume in Bayonetta 1 and 2, and how it should have been a little bit more revealing. No bias influenced that aspect of the game, and I think players can enjoy the game without worrying that it may have been. As Iwacchi mentioned, Nintendo isn’t just a giant company with red tape around every corner, and after working with them for such a long time, I get the impression that although there are times where we may butt heads, they’re surprisingly open to direct discussions around development and sales.Bayonetta creator, Hideki Kamiya.
