Platinum Games Says Bayonetta 3 Development Still on Track

Bayonetta's developers claim fans haven't seen all there is to see in the Bayonetta 3 reveal trailer.

It’s been over two years since Platinum Games first treated us to teaser footage for the upcoming Bayonetta 3. The lack of any solid updates in that time led many to wonder whether the demon-slaying witch’s latest outing would suffer from delay like so many others. In short, everything’s going according to plan.

Platinum’s Hideki Kamiya and Atsushi Inaba set the record straight in a brief Famitsu interview, telling the Japanese magazine development was fine. Unfortunately, Kamiya and Inaba didn’t provide much more information about Bayonetta 3, but Kamiya did say fans have yet to discover all the secrets hidden away in the Bayonetta 3 reveal trailer.

Which is pretty intriguing because it doesn’t show much on the surface. Bayonetta faces off against a powerful foe capable of stopping the witch in her tracks — and then what? Her guns fall, and Bayonetta herself possibly vanishes. Maybe we’re looking at multiple playable characters this time around or two-player co-op play? We don’t know right now. 

Hopefully, we don’t have to wait long until we find out. Kamiya noted this year marks the series’ 10th anniversary, so even if we don’t see a release date for Bayonetta 3, maybe we’ll at least get another trailer or some more satisfying news.

Meanwhile, we’ve got another Platinum announcement to look forward to later this week and the promise of The Wonderful 101 coming to new platforms after its wildly successful Kickstarter. So that’s something at least.
