AT THE INSISTENCE OF AN INTERVIEWER, DESIGNER HIDEKI KAMIYA SPOKE IN A PECULIAR WAY ABOUT BAYONETTA 3 FOR NINTENDO SWITCH
It is clear that since Bayonetta 3 was announced for Nintendo Switch at The Game Awards 2017, the information about the game has not been much.
For the same reason, players cannot be blamed for wanting to know more about this title, and it is a frequent topic whenever a PlatinumGames member is interviewed. Especially Hideki Kamiya, who is the creator of Bayonetta. Of that he spoke in a new meeting.
BAYONETTA 3 ANNOUNCED IN DECEMBER 2017
It should be noted that the talk was not itself about the game, but rather the interviewer brought it up. They asked Kamiya about certain statements that he made weeks ago, about the possibility that in 2021 there would be information on this title.
This designer replied ‘it’s not really our position to say it, but… it’s January. We have to share something, right? I guess it’s safe to wait for something to show up.
To the above, Hideki Kamiya added, “There is still a lot of the year left, that’s what I’m saying.” He seems to imply that there is enough left of 2021 for there to be more information about the game.
But the interviewer went further and made him see if he was referring to something other than a computer-generated logo. This designer laughed, and replied first, apparently very funny “I understand you are driving the fans crazy!”
HIDEKI KAMIYA SUGGESTS TO FORGET AND BE SURPRISED
Kamiya went on to say ‘in light of that, my suggestion would be that maybe we should reset everything and forget about Bayonetta 3’. Sounds a bit over the top, doesn’t it?
So, he finished off by saying ‘then when something finally happens, it will be a pleasant surprise, right?’ Understand the context in which the advice was given. Simply, this creative cannot speak, no matter how much he wants, about how the development of this game is going.
Nintendo funds its development, and only this company can authorize you to share details. So all he can do is talk about it in a general way.
We think that Hideki Kamiya must already be annoyed that they ask him about the matter all the time. It’s why he evasions over and over again. Hopefully this year there will be news of Bayonetta 3. Three years of development seems to be enough to show something more concrete.
