This year MadWorld was the only Wii exclusive that received a 9 from IGN. Bayonetta will be released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in just a couple weeks and it already received a perfect score from Famitsu in Japan. What do these two titles have in common? They were both developed by Platinum Games, the studio that rose from the ashes of Okami developer Clover. This is a group of people that knows how to make great games.
That's just one of the reasons IGN is excited for Infinite Space, the Nintendo DS space opera set for release next year. It will be a bit of a departure for Platinum -- while the developer is known for its intense action games, Infinite Space is a slower paced role-playing affair with turn-based battles.
