Hideki Kamiya thanks Nintendo for making Bayonetta 3 a reality
Nintendo becomes an important part of Bayonetta future of the series – help fund the second game on the Wii U and continue to fund the third game.
Platinum’s Hideki Kamiya previously mentioned he’s grateful to Nintendo for joining in to help “launch this project” and now he’s commented on this again. Bayonetta 3 was finally released.
Speaking to Famitsu, Kamiya said how “really happy” he was when the team was given the chance to make a third game, adding the following comment:
“I’m not exaggerating when I say I’m forever indebted to Nintendo.”
In the same interview, Nintendo producer Makoto Okazaki noted how a “passionate video message” from Kamiya helped make Bayonetta 3 a reality:
“Personally, I think that’s the ultimate push to make this game a reality.”
Although the Bayonetta series did not start out on the Nintendo platform, Nintendo has continued to sponsor the release of the original game on the Wii U and has also re-released the first and second games on the Nintendo Switch.
