Bayonetta 3 Announcement Might Be Coming Soon
Since the last time we heard of Bayonetta, it has been so long that it almost feels like a dream. Platinum Games has fallen into silence since the announcement that Bayonetta 3 is in development and will be released for Nintendo Switch. Now, a new hack-n-slash IP is working in the studio. A new announcement of Bayonetta 3 might be just around the corner, though.
During a recent interview, Platinum Games CEO Kenichi Sato spoke about the plans for 2020 for his company and told fans that they will have great news for the start of the year. He said the following:
We arrived a little late, but we hope you will receive great news by the beginning of the new year. So be attentive. I always keep my promises.
We already know that Platinum for Playstation 4 and Steam is working on the Fall of Babylon. That doesn’t say, however, it Bayonetta 3 fell back. This year, Hideki Kamiya reported that his production “actually goes quite well.” If an announcement is just around the corner, it wouldn’t shock us.
Because Platinum Games expects 2020 to be a major year for them, we wouldn’t be shocked if we were to get a release date for late-year Bayonetta 3. To add shock value to the launch and introduce another console retailer to the Nintendo Switch list, the company could gain from an upcoming Nintendo Direct.
We still have more in store for the franchise until we get that much awaited announcement of the release date of Bayonetta 3. We find out, according to a recent leak, that we are likely to get Bayonetta and Vanquish remasters to celebrate their anniversaries on consoles and PC in a “Tenth Anniversary Pack.” On that note, we may also look at an announcement from Nier Automata, so 2020 is clearly the year of the Platinum Games.
There is no set release date for Bayonetta3 yet. We’re expecting it to drop this year, however. On Nintendo Switch, the game will be exclusive. As for the fall of Babylon, the game will also be released with no fixed date on PS4 and PC. During this summer, Platinum promises more details.
