No big news yet on the new Bayonetta game, but Hideki Kamiya of PlatinumGames says it is still underway and “going very well.”
According to Kamiya, “First off, many people are worried about Bayonetta 3 considering there hasn’t been any new information since its announcement, but verifications of new systems have been going great and development is going very well, so please wait with peace of mind,” and that his motto for 2021 is to “do my best.”
The Bayonetta series was first released in the US on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 back in 2010. The sequel was originally halted when Sega stopped funding the game. The developers showed the half-finished game to different publishers who in turn showed little interest.
It was finally Nintendo who unexpectedly stepped in and saved the game. Bayonetta has been a Nintendo exclusive since. The first and second game are currently available on Switch.
