Bayonetta 3 Not Cancelled, Kamiya: “Take Any Concerns and Throw Them Out The Window”
The highly anticipated Bayonetta 3 is still coming, according to Platinum Games' Hideki Kamiya, and "hasn’t been cancelled by any means."
In a recent interview with PlatinumGames’ Hideki Kamiya, the director reassured fans that Bayonetta 3 was not cancelled. After being asked by the interviewer “Finally, Kamiya-san, are you bored of being asked about where Bayonetta 3 is yet?” Kamiya replied:
“I’m on Twitter so I see a lot of comments every day. I’m happy that there’s still anticipation for the title, but one thing I would like to address is the trend I’m seeing which is people who are starting to ask if the game has been cancelled. I want you guys to take any concerns you have like that and throw them out the window immediately because we’re still hard at work on it and it hasn’t been cancelled by any means. Please look forward to it!”
Hopefully Kamiya’s reassurances can sate fans highly anticipating Bayonetta 3. But considering the quality of the previous entries, I can understand the impatience.
In February, the Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle released for Xbox One and PS4. We reviewed it and “other than a nice, steelbook case for the physical edition, the Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle doesn’t have much else to offer.”
PlatinumGames also announced earlier this year that four big announcements, the Platinum 4, were coming and three of them already happened. The Wonderful 101 Remaster Kickstarter. The reveal of Project G.G., a new game directed by Hideki Kamiya and in the line of Viewtiful Joe and The Wonderful 101. And the launch of a new PlatinumGames studio in Tokyo. The fourth and last announcement wasn’t shared yet but PlatinumGames’ Hideki Kamiya and Atsushi Inaba teased that it’s coming soon and it’ll be something awesome.
In more lighthearted news, PlatinumGames and Hideki Kamiya published on April 1st their own April Fools’ 2020 joke as the fourth and final Platinum 4 announcement. Through a video posted on their official Twitter account, PlatinumGames reveals its new arcade system, the Neo-Classic Arcade, and its first game, Sol Presta, seemingly developed in collaboration with Hamster Corp.
