The Wonderful 101 director is interested in smaller experiences featuring side-characters of both IPs.
In conversation with Siliconera at PAX Prime, Platinum Games director Hideki Kamiya, whose latest game The Wonderful 101 recently debuted for the Nintendo Wii U in Japan and Europe, talked about making spin-offs to popular series like Bayonetta and Okami for the 3DS that would focus on more toned down experiences compared to their console counterparts.
For Bayonetta, Kamiya stated that, “Given the chance, I’d like to make a game based on Jeanne from Bayonetta. Something that’s not as big in scale. Something that’s portable, that you could play in quick sessions, where she’s a history teacher and the kind of fun things that could come out of a scenario like that.”
As for Okami, “If I could get away with it, I’d also like to come up with a spin-off of Ōkami, less focused on the grand idea of saving the world, but [rather] something focused on the smaller world of the fairy Issun.”
Meanwhile, The Wonderful 101 is set to debut in North America on September 15th.
