PlatinumGames’ Final ‘Platinum 4’ Announcement Will be “A Little Smaller in Scale” – Hideki Kamiya

Remember Platinum 4? Yeah, that's still happening.

It’s been almost a year since PlatinumGames kicked off their “Platinum 4” campaign, teasing four upcoming major announcements that they would make in quick succession. The first three turned out to be The Wonderful 101: Remasteredthe announcement of Project G.Gand the formation of a new studio.

The fourth announcement turned out to be a bit of a curveball, with PlatinumGames pulling an April Fool’s joke (to mixed responses), before finally teasing the actual final announcement of the bunch. It’s been many months since that happened though, and that announcement still isn’t here… so where is it?

Speaking in a recent interview with VGC, PlatinumGames’ Hideki Kamiya spoke about the same, saying that the COVID-19 pandemic threw a wrench into the timeline, but that it’s still going to happen at some point.

“We want to reveal it at the right time, but what we can say at the moment is that this was always intended as the ‘Platinum Four’, so I think that the expectations should be for something extra,” he said. “That being said, this is something that we’ve had in the works for a while.

“We wanted to get this out a little sooner but then the coronavirus happened, which I know is a common excuse, but we hope that when we can start talking about it, it will bring a smile to our fans’ faces and we’ll get a good reaction like, ‘ah, we love those Platinum guys!”

Kamiya went on to suggest that fans should keep their expectations in check, and that the announcement is going to be a little smaller in scale.

“If we had to choose one end of the spectrum, then I’d probably say it’s something a little smaller in scale,” he said. “But it’s still something I’m hoping fans will get a kick out of.”

PlatinumGames are hoping to (finally) give a long overdue update on Bayonetta 3 this year, so here’s hoping the two are connected. There’s also Babylon’s Fallwhich they’re developing with Square Enix, and I’m sure there are many people who’re dying to learn more about that game.
