In a new interview with our friends at VGC, Hideki Kamiya stated fans should “forget” about it for the time being and later stated, “It’s not really our position to say, but… it’s January. We’ve got to have something come out. I guess it’s safe to expect that something will come out. There’s still a lot of the year left, is what I’m saying.” when he was asked to provide an update so it’s most likely that we might be able to see Bayonetta 3 later this year.
He also stated, “In light of that, my suggestion would be that maybe we should all reset and forget about Bayonetta 3. Then when something finally does happen, it will be a nice surprise, won’t it?”
Kamiya also talked about Project G.G and said, “We really are going to start making way with Project G.G, which we announced last year. We want to start making good progress with that this year. We need to get things in motion with that, which is going to require a lot of time and dedication.”
This means that we might be getting an update on it this year, but it is not confirmed since they have just started making progress.
He later stated, “ Also, since we’re self-publishing, there are no publishers to get mad at me this time, so I’ll be sharing things online, putting up screenshots whenever I like.” You can read the full interview here for more information
Platinum Games have also stated that the next “Platinum 4” announcement would be smaller in scale compared to the previous announcements. You can check out all of the announcements that have been made by Platinum Games here (including that April fools prank)
They recently added a Bonus Stage, and Hideki Kamiya has finally spoken about it; here is what he said: “We want to reveal it at the right time, but what we can say at the moment is that this was always intended as the ‘Platinum Four,’ so I think that the expectations should be for something extra, That being said, this is something that we’ve had in the works for a while.”
I’m really excited to see what this announcement is. I think it is about Babylon’s Fall since it has been in the works for a while, which basically fits the description of what Kamiya said. When Kamiya was asked if the fans should expect a significant reveal or something, he replied with “Asked if fans should expect a major reveal, Kamiya replied: “If we had to choose one end of the spectrum, then I’d probably say it’s something a little smaller in scale. But it’s still something I’m hoping fans will get a kick out of.”
Just like I mentioned before, I’m speculating that this is some release date trailer for their upcoming game Babylon’s Fall, which looks amazing. I have been looking forward to it. We will keep you updated as soon as Platinum Games announce something.
