Oh Hideki Kamiya, you're such a joker. The Platinum Games developer teased to a follower on Twitter that a sequel to Bayonetta 2 would be arriving in a game magazine this week - shortly before fellow producer Atsushi Inaba had to come in and calm the world down by saying it was false information.
Responding to a Tweet on when we may hear more about Bayonetta 2,
Kamiya replied (possibly with 'serious face') "This week... in a game magazine." Atsushi Inaba quickly jumped in to Tweet (via Andriasang
) "There is no such announcement!" Inaba added that Kamiya likes to joke a lot.
SEGA has published each of Platinum Games' titles with a great level of cult success. MadWorld
, Infinite Space
were games published under an original agreement, but that agreement seemed to be stretched when it was confirmed that SEGA was publishing multiplayer brawler Anarchy Reigns
. The publisher has also indicated that it would like a sequel to Bayonetta
We would bet our bottom dollar (which is currently $1 right now, sitting proudly next to our Mini Ninjas
figurine) that SEGA is doing everything in its power to order a sequel to Bayonetta
, and that Platinum would have no problems making such a title. But, until something's announced, it's not happening is it? Randy Pitchford told us so.
