Bayonetta 2 hasn’t hit shelves yet, but Platinum would do another.
Nintendo’s exclusives, historically, have been either games made by Nintendo itself or family-friendly fare. There haven’t been many third-party, high-profile Nintendo exclusives since the days of the Nintendo 64. But Platinum Games’ Wii U exclusive Bayonetta 2 is an exception to the rule, and one that Platinum seems quite satisfied with.
Here’s game director Yusuke Hashimoto:
“Should the opportunity arise I’d definitely like to keep nurturing this franchise. In terms of nurturing the content of this game, there’s a lot that we learned from Nintendo and if possible we would love to do it again and keep nurturing our child.”
According to Hashimoto, Nintendo was a big help in realizing a final vision for Bayonetta 2. We’ll find out exactly what that means when the game lands on October 2. Maybe if it sells well we’ll find ourselves waiting on another Nintendo-backed Bayonetta title.
Thoughts? Would you pick up a Wii U for more Bayonetta?
