The above is a tweet spotted by Tmann26, we are all curious as to whether it is simply a Bayo promotion, or if it is something along the lines of a new collaboration between Platinum and Nintendo beyond Bayonetta 2 and Wonderful 101.
Lol, no. They were making a joke. I doubt Nintendo has any intention to partner with Platinum anymore, their games didn't sell very well. Maybe on Star Fox... but probably not.
If Nintendo funded it they would. But, I think they're currently working on Xbox One and PS4 on separate projects, so they wouldn't be able to take on another project yet.
Have any proof of a PS4 project? I've never heard of it
From Dengeki PlayStation. Hashimoto Yusuke (Platinum Games) - A new title is currently in progress http://m.neogaf.com/showthr...
I really do hope that's true and that Platinum Games are working on a PS4 exclusive. Those are the exact type of developers that Sony should be funding.
The never said it was a PS4 game, The interviewer asked what they were working on, be it on playstation or not. I'm sure they are working in revengence 2 though for Xone,Ps4,PC.
Every other game on that list is a PlayStation exclusive, the Sega game will be announced at E3, the rest you should know.I'm done talking about this here. This is about the Wii U, I was just pointing out they're busy.
The fact that half the comments on here are about platinum games making games for ps4/xbox one shows how little we care for the Wii-U LOL On topic: I wouldn't see them making a good modern metriod game at allll. If they did make one it would be more like the classic ones and not the first person ones.
Platinum, please bring back Vanquish
They making Scalebound for X1. I hope platinum and third party refuse to work with Nintendo because Nintendo hurts the potential of games. They bottleneck graphics and online. Anything that was third party for the WiiU would have been better on current gen spec hardware. And that's the fact you will have to accept.
Maybe you're right though do they regularly post their jokes on twitter like on Facebook? Platinum Games is an excellent candidate for Metroid due to now their game engine being moderately/well optimized for Wii U and the Samus Armor in Bayonetta 1 and 2 which had own moves and attacks... Shinji Mikaki could work with Platinum again after he left the company few years ago and he did direct/design Vanquish so imagine Vanquish and Metroid having a baby, it would be crazy and probably would't be a mess like Metroid Other M with Team Ninja being in chaos after Itagaki and some others have left the company.
Unless you want an actual Metroid game, or a 2D Metroid game.
What's with n4g and wanting all these weird metroid games? Everytime i see an e3 post i see some guy saying he wants a metroid online fps or some crap. Now we want an action Metroid game... again? Platinum excels at making linear 5-8 hour games with deep combat and high replayability. That's the opposite of Metroid whose emphasis is on exploration and labrynthine open worlds with little point in combat.
Nintendo has all intentions to partner with Platinum. Platinum makes games of Nintendo's quality. Nintendo has the capital (money) to fund Platinum games. Platinum wants Nintendo to fund their games. Do the math, it makes sense.
I can't really see a Metroid game from them...Retro yes but Platinum...no.
Yeah, their games seem a little....over the top to really be a good fit for the franchise. But then everyone thought Retro was going to ruin the franchise as well, so we can't really make any hasty judgements. They can't really do any worse than Team Ninja and Sakamoto did with Other M.
Oh, come now. I understand why people disliked Metroid Other M, I didn't even hold interest to play through the whole thing, but the base gameplay was fairly solid and someone could easily make a worse Metroid game. I'd say Other M was at least a 7.5. There's companies that could do a lot more damage than that. It's just not the quality we're used to from Metroid titles.
Theyve been partnering with platinum since mad world on the Wii which also didn't sell too great. Nintendo is a console maker too so it's okay if they invest in games that don't make big profits because it adds to the overall vaiety and appeal of the console. I''m sure the Wiiu saw a slight sales increase when Bayo2 launched. Also If this wasn't a joke, Nintendo knows a metroid game would sell, Hyrule warriors hit a mil because the Zelda name. I'm guessing a Platinum Metroid would sell more than the average platinum game. Too bad this tweet really doesn't mean much.
They never partnered with them for madworld. Madworld was a sega game. Besides we already got an action metroid game with Other M and it sucked. Platinum is not the company to make Metroid.
I would rather see retro make it too, but i think Okami shows Platinum has the range to make a metroid game that feels like a metroid game. So Nintendo partnerd with Sega for madworld, same idea.
I dont think thats true, actually. Sega made a push for mature titles on wii including Madworld, Conduit and HOTD, i think it was their decision. If you can find evidence of it being a deal with Nintendo, i'd be surprised. Platinum should be making a star fox game. They all love bullet hell games and over the top action which is the perfect mentality for a star fox game. When i think of Metroid i think of the quiet moments over anything else.
That's probably true, but is till think it's Nintendo's benefit to keep them on board. I wouldn't complain if platinum was making a spinoff Metroid. If they made a main Metroid i wouldn't be too worried unless from the first trailer you can tell its a Platinum game and not Metroid.
there are a few good way of knowing if a nintendo rumour is true- 1- have the fans been asking for it for years? if yes, its NOT true! nintendo never listen to the fans, they do what they please. 2- is it the obvious choice? if yes, then its NOT true! nintendo never do what is the obvious thing to do, they will do the least logical thing. 3- is it a good idea? if yes, then the rumour is NOT true! nintendo never do what all gamers think is best. so, whatever you imagine platinum might be working on, it will be the exact opposite. nintendo probably have platinum making a set of metroid branded playing cards for them
We probably won't see another Platinum-developed title on Wii U. Kamiya is working on Scalebound while Hashimoto is supposedly handling that new PS4 project. Scalebound probably won't even be out this year.
If this were true, then it looks like people who want a 2D Metroid game will have to be happy with Axiom Verge. On the plust side, Axiom Verge is a great game. If Nintendo doesn't want to make a good Metroid game any longer, others will.
So how do we stop this
You can't stop it. Maybe if you were the President of the United States or a Senator are something. Hell, Michael Pachter can't stop it. Lol
Well that would be really cool. They've worked with Nintendo before and have built a great relationship with them and platinum are also quite skilled at what they do and if this is true it would mean working on 3 titles at once. scalebound, metroid and the rumored MGS:Rising2.
I'd rather: Platinum --> StarFox Retro --> Metroid
Don't forget they captured Zelda in okami, Platinum are amazing developers with a larger pallete than it appears. I would trust that they could make a metroid style game. However... i want prime 4 from Retro.
I have to wonder if we'll eventually see Scalebound cross platforms considering it probably won't sell overly well on X1. I mean, a title like that from a Japanese company only for Microsoft's console? Surely they're just trying to add some diversity, but I can't imagine it flying off the shelves. I suppose the potential for it to become multiplatform depends on how much money MS threw at Platinum.
How do you know it won't sell.
I'm not claiming to know; I'm hypothesizing. Is it really that farfetched to say such a game may not appeal to the general core of the Xbox audience? I don't think so. Look at Sunset Overdrive. Great game that flopped in sales because Insomniac only put it on Xbox for whatever puzzling reason. Likely because Microsoft chucked a large chunk of change at them; same thing they probably did for Scalebound and definitely for Tomb Raider and lord knows who else they'll announce they bought off at E3 in a month. I swear if it's Mass Effect... -_-
It all depends on the kind of deal MS has struck with them. considering how they mananged to end up hemorreging exclusives last gen and it looks like the same thing might start happening again. I don't think it would be completely out of the realms of possiblility that Scalebound could come to the PS4 eventually. They pulled a similar tactic on the 360 and it worked pretty well in japan but not half as well as they'd have hoped. Still ended up with some rather fine exclusive RPGs on the 360 with Lost Oddyssey and Blue Dragon though.
Platinum is one of my favorite developers of all time regardless of their games sell well or not
Anything from Platinum would welcomed by me. A Metroid game would be awesome from these guys.
No no no no no... I know they have a pretty good following but no not Metroid. I don't think their style would work with Metroid, and let's face it...it's been a long time since we had a good Metroid. Other M was a mess And really damaged the franchise. N needs to put this in the hands of Retro and allow them to do what they do best.
Damaged the franchise? Er... I think it was a decent game with major flaws in the design, and that's it, it was just too meh to care about or to analyze the impact it had on the series.
It was riddled with plot holes and made one of the most highly regarded characters in games a boring, emotional shell who couldnt think for herself whatsoever. Also throw in the abundance of cutscenes and the lack of exploration in a series about gameplay and exploration. Honestly one of the worst moves in Nintendo's history, and a stain on an otherwise impeccable series that has put its future in jeopardy.
@Concertoine Surprisingly, those are the major flaws I was talking about. But even then, it was just that, ok. The series was also in jeopardy twenty years ago, it didn't matter if Super Metroid was an excellent game. And, at the end, it came back.
or Treasure games , they do 2D side scrolling very well.
I think their style would fit perfectly. Metroid would be awesome with their over the top style of action. If not Starfox then I think Metroid should go to Platinum. Retro is a great dev but I never did get into their first person Metroid games. Was not a fan of their series.
This screen shot is from the nintendo port of Bayonetta 1 on Wii U that is included with Bayonetta 2.
Oh god no don't get me wrong Im a big fan of Platinum but we don't need another Other M
I think Retro studio already working on this
So why are everyone so concerned with game sales instead of new possible content coming to the WiiU. Nintendo has money and if they want Platinum Games to work on another project, well that's what they will do! I don't understand the countless people that spend so much time on these sites drumming up hate for companies because they don't operate the way you want them to...
Many don't want Platinum Games to make any game for the Wii U. It's the thought Platinum Games should be making games for Xbox One & PS4.
I Hear You On That, But It makes no Sense when Platinum is already making projects for those systems as well. You can't fault Nintendo if they like Platinum Games quality and want them to make 5 or 6 games. People should be blaming Sony and Microsoft for not hiring these guys more to create unique games for their systems. It just gets old seeing those types of comments, I can only imagine if Nintendo does announce a new Platinum project N4G will go nuts!
