During a panel at Bitsummit, Bayonetta developer PlatinumGames’s Hideki Kamiya and Atsushi Inaba answered a few questions regarding the upcoming catalogue of releases from the company.
Between banter-filled questions and answers, some important revelations emerged regarding the future of the studio. Kamiya reiterated that his focus is on Bayonetta 3, but Inaba hinted at the goals and philosophy behind his currently unannounced project.
Inaba stated that Platinum is working on a variety of interesting titles, with one team in particular working on a project that will “turn the action genre on its head.” Genre defiance is the bread and butter for Platinum, so for someone of Inaba’s stature to make such a statement implies this title will be wholly groundbreaking.
Inaba stated that very few staff at PlatinumGames, barring the heads of the company, know of the project’s existence, signifying its secrecy.
