Platinum Games Possibly Teases The Wonderful 101 on Nintendo Switch, and Maybe More

In a series of illustrations featuring characters from The Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta, Platinum Games seems to be teasing potential Switch ports.

Known for their eclectic action titles and more, Platinum Games has released a wide variety of titles on Nintendo’s previous consoles such as The Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2, and now new teases from the studio may hint at what’s to come from them on the Nintendo Switch.

If you’ve had an eye on Twitter in the past few days, Platinum Games launched a new Japanese account for the company that has been accompanied by different illustrations and art from several of its titles. However, some of the images have more than winking nods towards what might (potentially) be Switch versions of some of their titles.

In particular, the most obvious one has come from an illustration of the characters from The Wonderful 101, which previously released on the Wii U back in 2013. Here though, several of the characters are using Wonderful 101-style Joy-Con controllers, which has many speculating on the idea of a Switch version of the game, down the line.

This was also backed by a similar teaser that Platinum Games did to kick off the announcement of the company’s Japanese Twitter account, which features two illustrations of Bayonetta from her iterations in both the original game and Bayonetta 2. However, a closer look reveals that the images (and background colors) happen to be similar with the Nintendo Switch neon Joy-Con colors, perhaps giving fans another wink and a nod.

While neither of these are confirmations in any way (other than being teasers), the idea of getting some of Platinum Games’ acclaimed titles on the Nintendo Switch is certainly appealing, and hopefully these might become a reality. In the meantime, you can check out both images below and ponder for yourself:
