PlatinumGames vice chairman Hideki Kamiya has mentioned he “can’t conceive the Bayonetta series ever ending” in a brand new interview.
The action-adventure sport sequence was created by Kamiya and launched in 2009. The third sport, Bayonetta 3, was launched in October, whereas a spin-off known as Bayonetta Origins: Cereza And The Lost Demon is because of arrive subsequent March.
Speaking to IGN Japan, Kamiya mentioned sport creators’ have to construct video games primarily based on “their own convictions” slightly than second-guessing what gamers need. “Taking the Bayonetta IP as an example, while I have a structure in mind for where the story is going to go far into the future, players are only able to pass judgment on the story that they have at the moment,” he mentioned.
He continued to share some gamers’ assumptions that the Bayonetta sequence will finish as a result of “the creators have no love for it” and challenged that concept. “How could I not love Cereza and all the other characters I’ve fostered for this long?” he requested, referencing the sport’s protagonist, who’s often known as Bayonetta.
When he was requested if there could be extra Bayonetta video games produced sooner or later, Kamiya replied: “I personally can’t conceive the Bayonetta series ever ending. I want to make a Bayonetta 4 and Bayonetta 5, and I intend on pitching them to the company. We often talk internally about how we could make nine of them.”
He added: “I want people who love the Bayonetta series to believe me when I say I’m not going to do anything that will betray the player.”
In a four-star overview, EpicGames News mentioned of Bayonetta 3: “For long-time fans of the series, it’s a big sigh of relief – it was more than worth the long wait. For newcomers, it’s a surprisingly forgiving story to drop into – you might not know the characters at first, but it’s easy to pick up. No matter which side you fall on, Bayonetta 3 is a crowning gem for PlatinumGames and a ridiculously good time for all.”
Meanwhile, the sport sequence has been embroiled in controversy just lately. One of its authentic voice actors known as on followers to boycott the third sport after feeling the payment she was supplied for the job was an “insult”. Hellena Taylor later responded to being known as “a liar and gold digger”, saying she felt the necessity to defend her repute.
