PlatinumGames Will “Turn the Action Genre on Its Head” With New Top Secret Project
Hideki Kamiya and Atsushi Inaba from the Japanese developer PlatinumGames, recently attended the Bitsummit panel held in Kyoto, Japan where they discussed what’s coming down the pipe. In fact, they revealed they’re working on an unannounced top secret project!
PlatinumGames has earned a reputation as one of the top action game developers with games like NieR: Automata, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and the Bayonetta series, among others. As such, they discussed an unannounced “top secret” project promising that it will be a new and innovative experience. Apparently this project is so top secret in fact that many people at Platinum have no idea about it. This of course makes it sound like the game is quite far away and that we shouldn’t expect any kind of official announcement or big reveal any time soon.
What’s even more exciting is that this unannounced project will, according to Inaba, “turn the action genre on its head.” And speaking of action games, both Inaba and Kamiya were asked whether the perfect action game exists, to which Inaba was doubtful this will ever happen, and Kamiya stated that Castlevania is the game that springs to mind. And if you’ve played any of Platinum’s action games, the key us to create good and innovative combo systems. According to Kamiya, these let the player feel like the character, allowing them to do some pretty awesome moves.
PlatinumGames is currently working on Bayonetta 3, which will be released exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. While it was revealed last December, there is no word yet on when it will release. Do you have any ideas about what this upcoming project could be? Let us know in the comments below and keep it locked for updates!
