Bayonetta 3 is very important for PlatinumGames

Atsushi Inaba and Hideki Kamiya of PlatinumGames were present at Reboot Develop, where they were also interviewed. Here we also briefly considered Bayonetta 3, if only in general terms.

Inaba, the producer of the game, first discussed the way he sees Bayonetta 3 as a turning point for PlatinumGames and how the game has to surpass his two predecessors. Inaba said it was clear that when Bayonetta 3 was announced, the developers received very positive and supportive responses. Kamiya will mainly give feedback from the Bayonetta 1-angle, since he was the director of it.

Why Bayonetta 3 is very important

For Inaba Bayonetta 3 really means a very important thing for the company in regard to making games. So with Bayonetta 3 they want to do something new, as a linear action game, add new tricks and think up new ways to play the game. After saying this, Inaba took some gas back and said he could not say much more about the game.

As far as Kamiya is concerned, who directed the first Bayonetta, PlatinumGames is still “thinking internally” about his role for Bayonetta 3.

But just like Inaba, he is aware that the expectations are high for the Switch game. Fortunately support from fans helped push the team. Kamiya said that although he is aware that he will not make the game in the end, many fans will still have certain expectations from him. In accordance with these expectations, the bar for Bayonetta 3 will be set high.

Crazier, better and tighter

Kamiya and Inaba know that fans expect crazier, better and tighter action games from them. If Bayonetta 3 does not live up to these expectations, then the bar will have to be even higher. In this way, everyone’s support, all the reactions of the fans and the positive reaction to the disclosure have helped build the team’s confidence to the point that they know they will not disappoint anyone.

It is therefore clear that the players are still very important to the team and that they help them to improve themselves and perfect their craftsmanship.
