Platinum's New Project Is Vanquish
Platinum Games has stated that a Bayonetta sequel or spin-off is a distinct possibility but for now, they're focusing on their latest project.
It's entirely different from the super fast-paced, straight-up action title, and it's likely to appeal to a wider demographic. Why? Because it's a shooter. As revealed last night on GameTrailers TV, Geoff Keighley made good on his promise to announce the mystery title and its name is Vanquish. Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami is at the helm for this one and although we didn't see much (just a futuristic soldier facing down other similar foes and a giant mech), it still looks pretty darn good. Even in the superior Xbox 360 version, the graphics weren't exactly a high point for Bayonetta, which is why we're happy to see a bit more visual effort being put forth in this new project. Earlier, it was rumored that Platinum might be teaming up with Epic Games but instead, the reality is that Platinum has adopted a legend in gaming to assist. That's almost never a bad idea, you know? And as for those hoping for a Bayonetta sequel, we imagine it can still arrive but not until after Vanquish hits store shelves. If you want to check out an early slideshow, visit Examiner.com.
We still can't help putting Bayonetta into Resident Evil 5 somehow. What might be the fastest-moving action game on earth with one of the slowest...how the hell would that even work?
