Is PlatinumGames Teasing Bayonetta 3 or just Trolling?

on April 27, 2017 12:09 PM

PlatinumGames is full of surprises and teases lately. Earlier this month you had the stealth-release of Bayonetta on PC. Then three days ago the developer appeared to be teasing something Vanquish related (like a PC port). And now the developer is at it again, with another new and pretty big tease, or maybe it’s just a big trolling…I can’t decide.

Nonetheless the intent, PlatinumGames — as spotted by Kotaku UK — recently uploaded five new videos that showcase various sequences from Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2. But that’s not the kicker, obviously. The kicker is: each video repeats three times. So the question is, why is PlatinumGames uploading these videos in the first place? And why does each repeat three times? Well, it’s pretty obvious, it’s a reference to Bayonetta 3. But is it a tease or a troll? This is still the ultimate question.

We know PlatinumGames likes to tease stuff — just look at the above mentioned Vanquish teasebut as Kotaku UK points out, Platinum is also known to troll its fans every once in awhile, as you would know if you followed the studio’s game designer Hideki Kamiya on Twitter.

What do you think? Is a Bayonetta 3 announcement on the horizon (maybe at E3)? Or is PlatinumGames just having some fun with fans desperate for a third game in the beloved series? Let us know in the comments.

Below, you can check out all five teasing videos for yourself
