Hideki Kamiya Reveals Fifth Platinum 4 Reveal is “Smaller in Scale”

Hideki Kamiya Reveals Fifth Platinum 4 Reveal is “Smaller in Scale”

In a new interview with Video Game Chronicle, Hideki Kamiya revealed a few important details about the fifth "Platinum 4" announcement.

In February 2020, PlatinumGames kicked off the marketing campaign known as the “Platinum 4.” What followed was a series of announcements the revealed a Kickstarter campaign for The Wonderful 101: Remastered, the start of a new project, and the creation of a new studio. However, we’ve known for a while that at least one more announcement was forthcoming. Today, Hideki Kamiya spoke to Video Game Chronicle and revealed a few important bits about that upcoming announcement.

Of course, Kamiya wasn’t able to share when exactly the announcement will go live. Instead, he used the interview more to set fans’ expectations. He called the reveal something “smaller in scale” to the others. However, he was clear that they’ve “had (this) in the works for a while.” So, expect a smaller surprise, but it still to be more than worth your time.

Kamiya also let VGC know that the reveal was initially set for earlier. However, like so many things in the past year, it was pushed back due to the coronavirus. At this point, that’s far from surprising, but it does make you wonder exactly what they have up their sleeves.

The one thing I think we can assume is that this won’t be Bayonetta 3-related. Kamiya has been on record saying Platinum wants to get an update for that game out this year, but that’s not something you’d call “smaller in scale.” That announcement will break the internet when it comes. So, don’t expect the fifth Platinum 4 reveal to be related to that franchise.

Regardless, be sure to keep your eyes locked to DualShockers for the news. No matter what comes out of PlatinumGames, you can rest assured that we’ll have it for you as soon as possible. For now though, just pop on that Bayonetta remake.
