Hideki Kamiya, the creator behind Devil May Cry and co-founder of Platinum Games has hinted that he’d like to return to full-on hack-and-slash title Bayonetta after completing Scalebound.
According to the designer, Bayonetta 3 is “something I’ve been thinking a lot about” and that he’d been discussing the concept internally with developer Platinum Games.
“I’ve written some outlines for what the game would be,” he continued, “And I feel really confident it would be cool if we got the chance to make it.”
Kamiya told Metro that he has yet to approach publishers with the idea, but has “spent a lot of time thinking in (his) head what that game would be.”
The designer also teased that he has “ideas” for an Okami sequel, too, though Platinum would need permission from Capcom to create an Okami 2.
The original Bayonetta released back in 2009 for the PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360. The second game, Bayonetta 2, meanwhile, released in 2014 for the Wii U only. It’s currently unknown whether or not the potential third game would be another Wii U-exclusive.
In addition to his work on Okami and the Bayonetta series, Hideki Kamiya is known for his previous work on numerous Capcoms, such as the first two Resident Evil games and the Viewtiful Joe games, whilst also voice acting in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations. His latest venture is Scalebound, a fantastical action-RPG set to release in 2017 as an Xbox exclusive.
