What can we expect from Bayonetta 3? What is Platinum Games trying to do different with it?
Platinum Games surprised the world with the depth and quality of their two Bayonetta titles. The second of which came out exclusively on the Wii U. Now, Bayonetta 3 is coming, possibly even before the end of this year. However, during a convention, a translator for one of the producers of the game, Atsushi Inaba, noted that Platinum Games has some personal investment in this title:
“Obviously when they announced that they were doing Bayonetta 3, they got an incredibly kind, supportive reactions about that title. Inaba-san himself is producing that. Obviously Kamiya-san is going to provide some feedback from the Bayonetta 1 angle, since he was the director on that. But for Inaba-san, Bayonetta 3 represents a turning point for the company in how they make games. And so Bayonetta 3, for taking a linear forward progression action game, they really want to do something new, add in new gimmicks, new ways to play the game, and then he walked it back a bit, and said, ‘Wait a second, I can’t even really talk about the job for us.’ So let’s pretend you didn’t hear that, because right now we don’t know, maybe it will be something different. However, for them, they see this as a key point to design the game because obviously Bayonetta 2 was a fantastic title, but they need to make sure this is leaps and bounds above that even.”
