Platinum Games director Hideki Kamiya has expressed his desire to make a Wonderful 101 sequel, as well as his appetite to bring the original Bayonetta to the Wii U.
Kamiya recently spoke with IGN where he revealed these details:
“If I get the chance [to make a Wonderful 101 sequel], I would certainly like to make that game. I really have no idea at this point, but I would love to make a sequel to one of my own games.
“We put a tremendous amount of work into this game and it would be unfortunate if I would not get the chance to tell a new story with these characters. However, some of the bad guys you beat in this game won’t appear in a sequel. That’s kind of a depressing thought.”
“I would love to make [Bayonetta on the Wii U] that happen, so that gamers unfamiliar with the first game get to play it. This is just my personal opinion, however. I have not much say over the matter.
“However, I think designers should always keep in mind that not everyone has played the previous title, even if this was released on the same platform. You have to make sure that even players who are unfamiliar with the franchise are able to keep up.”
It seems that Platinum have recently gotten into bed with Nintendo and I’m not sure it is working out for them. I’m hearing that sales of Wonderful 101 have not been great so far and that is very worrying. I also think that Bayonetta 2 will not sell well, purely for the fact that it is a Wii U exclusive. I think Platinum Games needs to get back to making multi-platform games as soon as possible.
Let me know below what you think of Kamiya’s comments and whether you agree with me that Platinum are making a mistake with Nintendo.
