Platinum Games' Atsushi Inaba stated that the company would love to self-publish a new Bayonetta game (and maybe some of the older ones), but doing so would be a pricey proposition.
well duh, it's a new title did people expect otherwise? It cost more to buy new than old
I think a new Bayonetta would sell more as a multi console release.
It would be nice to see Bayonetta also return to other platforms where most of the fans of the franchise actually are. Obviously, there's now a big chunk of fans on Nintendo platforms as well but the original was a bigger hit than Bayonetta 2. It's very unlikely though, unfortunately.

If only platinum games was better with money... it would have
100% without a doubt would sell more and make the franchise more popular and would look amazing in 4K. I’m glad they are making bayo 3, but still wish on what could have been done with bayo on next gen hardware.
It would be multiplatform if it sold well enough for Sega to fund the sequels itself
“However, the Bayonetta IP is currently owned jointly by Nintendo and SEGA.” This isn’t like the Fatal Frame IP that Nintendo owns jointly with Tecmo Koei. Sega solely owns the Bayonetta IP. Nintendo just owns distribution rights for Bayo 2 & Bayo 3 since they helped fund the sequels
Yes! Ive already put in a pre-order for the ps4 remaster of bayonetta/vanquish.
Right, which pretty much means we will never see Bayonetta 2 or 3 on other platforms. It is possible that a potential Bayo 4 could be multiplat, but that would still be a loooong way off. Also there is the possibility of Nintendo outright buying the Bayonetta IP if 3 does well. Basically your best chance would be if Bayo 3 was a smash hit, and Sega decided that they would publish 4 on other consoles instead of leaving it to Nintendo.
Would people buy a Bayo 4 if they never played 2 and 3? Seems less likely.
@Segata All the more reason that 4 would likely remain Nintendo exclusive if that be the case. Sega might consider not worth the investment, which would have Nintendo step up once again.
Yes but that goes for any new game not just Bayonetta, I honestly don’t think self publishing is the best choice for a company like Platinum since they’re all about fast paced high octane action games. Though I do see self publishing being good for remastering games that haven’t had the treatment already.
The only reason they would have to ask Nintendo is for the rights to publish 2 and 3. The ip is solely Segas' property.
yea i can imagine that being true. its a shame that bayonetta 2 and possibly 3 are Nintendo exclusive games. i would have loved it to play it on my ps4, i guess its the same for alot of games.
not possibly 3 def 3
Everyone love to play games from other systems just get that system so you can play it
It's not a shame when there would no Bayo 2 or 3 without Nintendo.
It is really disappointing that Bayonetta sequels are not on the consoles where the graphics could be turned up a few notches. The game is real good on Nintendo's consoles, but it is meant to be in 4K HDR.
Well, Nintendo was the only company that wanted to fund those games, so the series would have been long dead now otherwise. Also, the development of those titles with better graphics, as you're wishing, could very likely have pushed production costs far outside of any profibility considering how niche Bayonetta is. Platinum games are not blockbuster sellers.
bayonetta 1 was cool I liked it, I have the second one to now on switch, not sure if I should just jump in and play it, or play the first one again
Bayonetta on the next generation consoles and PC would be great but it is up to Sega to get smart about that first.
Bayo 1 is on PC. It's coming to PS4 and XBO in a few days.
The sequels I meant
Too bad this ain't happening. It's Up to Sega and Nintendo.
I just get tired of hearing how great of a developer they are, yet they're constantly in financial trouble, why is that? Truth is their games just don't sell that well, even on the platforms they are on...
Great games, niche market. Very stylistically Japanese action games. Not the most popular market, but they're really good at what they do.
