The Nintendo Switch exclusive was announced years ago, but no news has been shown since. It is not the first time that Hideki Kamiya, director of Bayonetta 3 (Nintendo Switch) and one of the PlatinumGames heavyweights, has stepped forward to reassure fans.
In May 2020, rumors of a possible cancellation were nipped in the bud. Now, in statements translated by Nintendo Life, the Japanese developer has once again come to the fore to confirm that the development of the title starring the witch “is going well”, all in the context of the coronavirus epidemic (COVID-19) that has spread throughout the world.
GameXplain asks the Japanese director about the impact that the pandemic is having on the development of the video game. Kamiya is cautious and maintains that it will have to be analyzed later. “We are working from home and trying to do what we can to adapt to this new style of work,” he comments in the interview. The creative sees it as a challenge, since the special circumstances are a test of adaptation to a new situation.
Nintendo Switch Exclusives Undated
Bayonetta 3 is one of the great Nintendo Switch exclusives that still doesn’t have a launch window. Other titles like Metroid Prime 4 or the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are in the same situation. While the catalog of the Kyoto hybrid has added great games in recent months, including Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition or Paper Mario: The Origami King, the calendar for the coming months It remains empty, waiting for Nintendo to uncover its entire plans.
For its part, PlatinumGames has an ambitious plan for the future that contemplates not only producing video games for third-party companies, but also editing their own products, with Project G.G. to the head. In addition, in collaboration with Square Enix, it will launch Babylon’s Fall, a new intellectual property.
