Bayonetta 2 will be arriving exclusively for the Nintendo Wii U and Platinum Games has been making a big deal about how fruitful its relationship with Nintendo has been. Director Yusuke Hashimoto actually spoke to CVG about how the developer would like to “keep nurturing” the franchise with Nintendo.
“In terms of nurturing the content of this game, there’s a lot that we learned from Nintendo and if possible we would love to do it again and keep nurturing our child.
“I feel that it’s important to let your creativity flow and Nintendo has been able to provide us with the freedom to create what we had originally envisioned. We were able to have a lot of back-and-forth and they were able to provide objective feedback. I feel that was really good and helped push Bayonetta 2 to even higher quality.
“We started out with a fundamental freedom, with Nintendo telling us to go and create the game as we saw fit. But as the game started to take shape and we were starting to put all the pieces together, they were able to point out some things that we didn’t realise ourselves. That was really helpful for us.”
Bayonetta 2 will be out in October for North America and Europe. Would you like to see a Bayonetta 3 on the Wii U? Let us know in the comments.
