Hideki Kamiya, director of the upcoming Bayonetta, has revealed they aren't concerned about the possible pitfalls of developing niche titles. Kamiya slated Bayonetta as yet another niche title. The game will be "sadistically hard", and it also features a female protagonist, which Kamiya admits "it really is hard to connect a female character with hardcore battle action". This is all piled on top of the fact that the market is favoring sequels as opposed to original games, Kamiya explains.
Despite that, the studio isn't worried about sales numbers. "We are totally dedicated to making one thing – Fun games", Kamiya insisted.
