Bayonetta director Hideki Kamiya has hinted that a sequel to Platinum Games' acclaimed sultry actioner may be announced later this week.
A translation by Andriasang has Kamiya Tweeting “This week…in a game magazine…” in response to a fan asking we could expect an announcement on a follow-up.
Whether he was joking or not remains to be seen, but then again the Tokyo Game Show is just around the corner so there’s still the possibility of a pre-show announcement.
Developer Platinum Games has hinted at Bayonetta 2 on numerous occasions in the past. Last October, studio co- founder Atsushi Inaba said the company would ‘love to make a sequel’ when the time is right. Meanwhile last September, Kamiya, responding to whether or not we’d see more from the series, simply replied, “I believe so.”
The original Bayonetta hit PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 back in January 2010. We came away rather impressed to say the least, despite some annoying bugs present in the PS3 conversion.
