It’s been awhile since Nintendo and Platinum Games announced Bayonetta 3, and we haven’t heard anything regarding the game since. However, a small update for the game will probably reassure fans that development is right on track.
The news comes from a stage event (via Dualshockers) at the Bitsummit Roadshow: Tokyo event, where PlatinumGames’ own Hideki Kamiya and Atsushi Inaba talked up the game’s development progress. The creators noted the game is “on course” and that everyone on their team is “in sync.”
“It’s nice to be able to tell you that everything is going very, very well. We’re all very excited about what we’re doing on that game,” the developers noted.
A fun tidbit from the panel was original director Kamiya noting the idea for the game came from his want to have a protagonist wield guns and be able to both shoot and hit enemies with their guns. He then proposed the idea to an animator, who then came up with the idea to have Bayonetta hit enemies with her guns by letting her kick with them too – thus gun heels were conceived.
Bayonetta 3 is currently in development for Nintendo Switch.
