if you want Bayonet 3 Come Game console, Xbox or personal computer – Not just Nintendo Switch – Hideki Kamiya, Executive Director of PlatinumGames, wants you to let Nintendo know.
The first Bayonetta game was multi-platform when it launched in 2009: it landed on PlayStation and Xbox consoles (later on PC). However, since then, Nintendo has released the series, so “Knife Hunter 2” and “Devil Hunter 3” are unique to the Nintendo platform. Bayonetta 2 was originally released on the ill-fated Wii U and later re-released on Nintendo Switch.
The same exclusivity also applies to the upcoming Bayonetta 3. This makes some gamers feel uneasy, and they very much want to play games on their shiny new PS5 or Xbox Series X/S consoles.
Per Kamiya, if you want to try a new game away from the official home of Nintendo, you will have to tell the publisher itself.
“We are developing Bayonetta 3, just like we are developing Bayonetta 2, we got funding from Nintendo,” the outspoken director said In tweet“Since we are’only developing’, Nintendo has a complete say in the product.”
Interestingly, he went on to point out that the possibility of seeing this game and Bayonetta 2 on other platforms is actually not impossible.
“It seems that the possibility of Bayonetta 2 and Bayonetta 3 being ported to PS4 and Xbox is not zero,” He added.
Kamiya also said: “By [same logic], The possibility of Mario and Zelda [will come to other platforms] It’s not zero.” So the possibilities of all this remain to be seen.
Nonetheless, for players who want to buy the latest PlatinumGames games on hardware other than Nintendo Switch, this is a promise, right? It’s important to note that Kamiya is more known for being grumpy on Twitter than many other developers. Please keep this in mind.
Yesterday, we heard that Bayonetta 3 may “share a feature” with the cancelled PlatinumGames game Scalebound, according to the studio’s former developer.
Bayonetta 3 was announced in 2017 and will finally land on the Switch next year.
