After the first Bayonetta released to tepid sales on the PS3 and Xbox 360, Nintendo leapt in to bring the sequel, Bayonetta 2, exclusively to the Wii U. Now, Platinum’s Hideki Kamiya is thinking about Bayonetta 3, and he’s got a plan in place if the developer ever gets a chance to do it.
Here’s what Kamiya told Polygon about the possibility of a third Bayonetta game at this year’s E3 Expo:
“To answer your question straightly, yes,” Kamiya said. “It’s actually something I’ve been thinking a lot about. We’ve talked a lot about it internally at the company and I’ve written some outlines for what the game would be. And I feel really confident it would be cool if we got the chance to make it.”
“Right now, we’re looking at opportunities… If that opportunity ever came up to make Bayonetta 3, that would be really, really cool.”
If we were discussing a congressional bill, this is the point where I’d tell you to call your congressman. But we’re not, we’re talking about a video game. However, in Bayonetta’s case, contacting your favorite publisher and asking for Bayonetta 3 might not be a bad idea. After all, Platinum was able to port the original Bayonetta to the Wii U alongside its sequel thanks to the devoted dedication of its fans.
