Platinum Will Make Bayonetta Sequel "When The Time Is Right"
Although the PlayStation 3 version suffered - a mistake the developers likely won't make twice - Bayonetta remains one of the most critically acclaimed action titles of the generation.
And for all the fans hoping for a sequel, Platinum Games has hinted that it's a definite possibility. In speaking to Eurogamer, studio co-founder Atsushi Inaba said they "would love to make Bayonetta 2," and they do plan to embark on the project "when the time is right." Inaba is producing the team's stylish new shooter, Vanquish, and was responding to questions involving a Tweet from fellow co-founder Hideki Kamiya. When Kamiya was asked if there would be a sequel, the DMC creator simply replied, "I believe so." But Inaba has also clarified that "there is no concrete plan or schedule" they can talk about; it's just a vague plan that should come together in the future.
"But Bayonetta is definitely a special IP for us. We loved creating that game. We think it was a really good game. We would love to make a sequel to it when the time is right. That's all we can say."
Bayonetta averages 90% in review scores based on the GameRankings tally, even though the PS3 version lags a little behind at 86%. Vanquish appears to be almost identical on both platforms, though, so if Platinum did bring back the leggy vixen, PS3 owners probably wouldn't be left out in the cold. Just a guess.
