Bayonetta 3 Could be a Nintendo Exclusive as Well

Director Yasuke Hashimoto said:
"Should the opportunity arise I’d definitely like to keep nurturing this franchise. In terms of nurturing the content of this game, there’s a lot that we learned from Nintendo and if possible we would love to do it again and keep nurturing our child." (3DS, Bayonetta 2, Wii U, Yasuke Hashimoto)

Whatever, just keep the franchise alive.
jc48573  +   520d ago
yea, no longer going to complain about which platform is going to be released anymore, just make sure to keep it alive.
Baka-akaB  +   519d ago
Seriously , if it's alive and good , there is not much to complain about . Except wish thatrelease a graphic powerhouses with its future console , if you care about that side .

Agreed =]
Baka-akaB  +   519d ago
No what ? No Nintendo no Bayonetta , regardless of how much it will sell on WiiU . People need to get over it , or should have supported the first game better (especially the 360 version wich actually ran fine)
LAWSON72  +   519d ago
Well you would kind of never get to play Bayo 2 without a Wii U anyway.

Platinum makes an exclusive for the Wii U

Platinum makes an exclusive for the XB1

Platinum makes an exclusive for..oh wait no they dont.
KonsoruMasuta  +   519d ago
Sony didn't want to throw any money at them. At this point, Platinum is willing to put in work for anyone who is willing to pay up.
Baka-akaB  +   519d ago
I dont think Kamiya would beg for scraps from Sony either way , Sony have to show they want it . They dont have the best relationship (Sony's fault mostly) , even if obviously he wont just block multi platform releases .

That isnt to say he begged MS or Nintendo either...

From what i understand Platinum approached Nintendo with the concept of TW101, then as development progressed on that Nintendo revived Bayonetta 2.

According to cboat MS "moneyhatted" Platinum for Scalebound.

Im glad to see Platinum on a pedastal lately, a lot of companies vying for their games, their making a Legend of Korra now for Activision as well. Sony would be doing well to fund an exclusive from them since theyve proven to have a diehard fanbase and quick development times.
XabiDaChosenOne  +   519d ago
I think platinum games hates Sony.
KonsoruMasuta  +   519d ago
They're just developing for the people who were willing to throw money at them.

Microsoft paid them for an exclusive game, so they got it.

Nintendo paid them for an exclusive game, so they got it.

Sony didn't bother to make any type of deal with them, so there is no PS4 games from Platinum.

Your beef is with Sony, not Platinum. They have to be willing to throw some money.
Avengingkinght92  +   519d ago
I'm glad Sony is not wasting money on a crappy developer, who's games hardly sell or make a profit for the company that funds them.
XabiDaChosenOne  +   519d ago
I still remember when they put the ps3 version of bayonetta in the blender and didn't even bother to fix it. This ill will towards Sony has been there for awhile now.
voodoochild346  +   519d ago

"Games that don't sell as well as cod or madden = crappy developer." Intelligence at work!
Gohadouken  +   519d ago

Uh ? they never did a ps3 version .They didnt have the ressource nor the will to do so , and Sega took it upon themselves to release that crappy ps3 version .

The level of butthurt around here is astonishing . The crap version , the one that shouldnt even exist , on ps3 ... sold better .
So who are those guys to decide it shouldnt be on WiiU where it got a chance to survive ?

Chinkyinc18  +   519d ago
They made MGS: R and ported it to PC, do the same with Bayonetta!
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   519d ago
It's not possible, Chinky.
Unlike MGS: R, Bayonetta 2 is 100% an exclusive to Nintendo systems, because Nintendo is funding its creation in all areas.

The first Bayonetta, well, that MIGHT be possible, but seeing how it didn't do too well on the other two systems that host similar third party games like this, I have my doubts that it would do well enough on the PC for Platinum to justify it.

I wouldn't complain if the first one came to PC, mind; widening the fan base is a good thing for one of my favorite series'.

But please don't get your hopes up for Bayonetta 2 on PC, and likely not 3, either.

On another note; I really hope Nintendo talks with Platinum[or vice versa] about getting a port of, or sequel to, Vanquish up and running on Wii U someday.
I still own and love that game to death on the PS3...
Ultimax  +   519d ago
This studio seems like he doesn't care about what the majority of gamers want
He only care about brands and how much they get paid
KonsoruMasuta  +   519d ago
Games cost money to make. I don't know if you knew that but it's true.

Platinum was very close to bankruptcy at one point and is very far from swimming in money. They don't care about brands, they care about being able to support themselves.
Nintendo was willing to throw money at Bayonetta when nobody else was willing, so they took the opportunity. It was the best choice they had.

Third parties don't have brand loyalty like fans do, they are willing to work for anyone who is willing to throw money. That is how the industry works.

If you don't want Bayonetta 3 to be a WiiU exclusive, pray that another company is willing to publish it before Nintendo does/if Nintendo doesn't.

Ultimax  +   519d ago
whatever floats their boat , as long as Bayonetta 3 still being made I'm fine with that , the only issue here is their goal , what's their goal from making all these unique games to specific brands if not being made for everyone ( Gamers on all consoles in general ) , its up to them to choose a 3rd party publisher , like they did with Konami and Activision
Gohadouken  +   519d ago
It's up to them to always choose people that dont want to work with them on some specific projects ?

Baka-akaB  +   519d ago
Oh yeah , how dare they get a sequel that no one wanted to publish over at Nintendo ! We'd just have kickstarted the whole thing !! /s
Avengingkinght92  +   519d ago
Agree. That's what I also think about that company. As long as they get paid, they don't give a crap if they alienate fans.
NihonjinChick  +   519d ago
If Nintendo didn't fund it, it would not exist. Neither Microsoft, Sony, or Sega was willing to publish it. Platinum had no funds and no publisher before Nintendo came along.

They never tried to alienate anybody.
specialguest  +   519d ago
Yes because you expect them to MAGICALLY pull money out of no where and develop Bayonetta 2 for all of those consoles that didn't give a damn about the game right?? You need to blame Sony and MS, and thank Nintendo for keeping the IP alive and possible to play. Get out of my kitchen! (Throws dirty rag at you)
Imalwaysright  +   519d ago
And why do you care when in your words they're a "crappy developer"? You seem buthurt because your mommy doesn't want to buy you a Wii U.
Baka-akaB  +   519d ago
So not releasing a sequel would please you the so called fans ?

That's something
But in the other hand its not gonna hurt PG if they want to ask some third party publishers to publish their new Bayonetta or any game they had , i mean let's be real who would refuse that : Konami , Bethesda , Deep Silver , NamcoBandi , Capcom?
Baka-akaB  +   519d ago
Isnt that what basically happened , no one wanting it when it was available ? You guys are weird , the same literally happened with Darksiders , when THQ was up for grabs . People always expect Sony or MS to swoop in and save ailing publishers and ips , when it rarely happens for already struggling titles

3rd party Publishers dont risk it , with no prospect , in their minds , from those niche games in a niche genre , where mostly dmc (not even anymore , but for other reasons)and god of war sells a few millions top

great to hear that good for nintendo very good indeed .
off topic .
but where is my platinum PS4 game oh wait they act like modern day mercenaries .
on topic .
its great that nintendo cares about the games that they believe is essential to provide the variety since 3rd party publishers are ignoring them i think this is an excellent business decision good luck for them .
PrinceOfAllSaiyans  +   519d ago
Who cares at least Playstation 4 is getting a Miyazaki game in Bloodborne which looks like a GOTY contender.

OT: Good for Nintendo, I really need to get a Wii U later this year.

bloodborne looks great i think i am biased toward anything that isnt a shooter these days lol any shooter automatically gets to my ignore zone .
bloodborne is on my gaming calender just need to see more .
i am not getting a wii u ( not interested ) but i must be honest in my opinions nintendo did nothing wrong this gen but it seems like everything is going against them for some reason .
HappyWithOneBubble  +   519d ago
Bayonetta 2 will have to sell 1st. I hope you Wii U owners support this game because 1st party is getting most of the sells while 3rd party don't. I can't get a Wii U right now but when I do this game will be my 1st purchase.

Didn't Platinum openly say they wouldn't mind if Nintendo bought them out?
sonic989  +   519d ago
some of the people who work there are very moody ( kamiya ) he can say anything then change his mind in like 2 days .
i got shocked when i saw their xbox game at E3 i didnt like it but it was weird in some way since they looked like all nintendo for some time .

Less talk Nintendo fans show some support and go buy the game if you really care about it
thehobbyist  +   519d ago
Bayonetta 2 has already exceeded Bayonetta's pre-orders. There's your support.
Nano_predator  +   519d ago
Comparing a New IP pre-orders from 2009 to a an unexpected sequel in past years is considered win because screw logic , right ?
OtakuDJK1NG-Rory  +   519d ago

New enough to be exclusive to Nintendo Fans
PiNkFaIrYbOi  +   519d ago
Listen to all those anguished screams of fans of the series, who either hate/don 't like Nintendo.
Shinuz  +   519d ago
Good for them, just sucks cause I won't be playing it...
lilbroRx  +   519d ago
That's all on your there.

If I want to play a game, I buy the system its own. Otherwise, I shut my mouth and go play something else.

You'll never hear me saying something like "just sucks cause I won't be playing it" about anything.
Shinuz  +   518d ago
Well it does sucks that I won't be playing the sequel of a game I really enjoyed.

It sucks that its coming out on a system which I have zero interest in (although that new open world zelda game sure looks gorgeous).

I'm happy for the guys who own the system, as I'm sure the game will be awesome like the first one was.

If I had money like you seem to have I'd gladly spend 350$+ to buy a system for only one game, but I don't so that's why it sucks.
lilbroRx  +   518d ago
Your comment makes no sense to me. I base my decision to buy consoles almost purely on what games are on it.

Why would any rational person not buy the console that has the games he wants to play?

Sounds like fanboyism to me.
kingtroy  +   519d ago
Bayonette is an under rated series
AKR  +   519d ago
I find it funny how when Nintendo announces they've sealed an exclusive with an outside publisher - everybody suddenly wants it on every other system. (This is happened many times before, not just in Wii U's lifetime).

But what's even funnier - is when a dev announces they WON'T be bringing their game to Nintendo systems - anyone who dare asks "Why?" is bombarded with flack like "Why on earth should they bring it to Nintendo systems?"
