Since leaving Platinum Games, co-founder of the Bayonetta studio Hideki Kamiya has been focusing on what’s next to come for him, but also his budding YouTube channel, where he’s simply been doing whatever he likes.
Part of that included responding to fan comments in his latest video, where he addressed a commonly asked question around him collaborating with other storied developers in the industry unlike himself.
“Look, it would be a disaster! It doesn’t work like in Dragon Ball, where Goku fuses with other characters. Two people with completely different personalities and ideas would clash. There’s no way you’d get a decent game of that. Why is that hard for people to understand?”
Of course super groups could be possible in game development as they are elsewhere in entertainment and art, but Kamiya is right, each of the names mentioned are all outstanding creatives and game makers in their own right.
It’s more likely the difference in how each of them work and their approaches would cause more tension and yield a game that perhaps doesn’t live up to any of their own quality standards.
