Bayonetta 3 Is A Possibility

Developer Platinum Games has revealed that Bayonetta 3 is a possibility, despite the second entry in the series not being out yet. As expected, the third game will be a Nintendo exclusive if it were to ever exist.

Game director Yusuke Hashimoto, while speaking with CVG, explained that he’d be every interested in creating the third installment in the zany series.

“Should the opportunity arise I’d definitely like to keep nurturing this franchise,” he said. “In terms of nurturing the content of this game, there’s a lot that we learned from Nintendo and if possible we would love to do it again and keep nurturing our child.

“I feel that it’s important to let your creativity flow and Nintendo has been able to provide us with the freedom to create what we had originally envisioned. We were able to have a lot of back-and-forth and they were able to provide objective feedback. I feel that was really good and helped push Bayonetta 2 to even higher quality.

“We started out with a fundamental freedom, with Nintendo telling us to go and create the game as we saw fit. But as the game started to take shape and we were starting to put all the pieces together, they were able to point out some things that we didn’t realise ourselves. That was really helpful for us.”

Bayonetta 2 will release in October exclusively on the Wii U, and will come packed with the original game.
