Bayonetta developer, Platinum Games, is hard at work on a top secret AAA action game that’ll turn the genre “on its head” according to its founders.
Speakng at the Bitsummer panel in Kyoto, Japan, PlatinumGames founders Atsushi Inaba and Hideki Kamiya spoke about what’s in store for the future of the studio (translated by DualShockers). Without saying too much, they said that they’re working on a top secret action game, so secretive most of the studios employees don’t know about it yet.
What they said for sure though is that this new top secret game will “turn the action genre on its head”. It’s a pretty wild claim, but not one Platinum Games wouldn’t be able to achieve, that’s for sure.
As for other titles in Platinum’s archive, they discussed the possibility of bringing The Wonderful 101 to Nintendo Switch as well as their design philosophy which focuses more on bite-sized games with strong gameplay, rather than larger projects with big budgets – likely the reason why Scalebound never happened.
Bayonetta 3 is the next title from Platinum Games which is set to hit the Nintendo Switch.
