"We’re creating it, you know"
With his tongue firmly in cheek, we imagine
We're really looking forward to Bayonetta 3 on Switch; we simply cannot wait to take on the role of the titular Umbra Witch as she fights more angels and demons in a world that exists in one of three planes of reality. After the superb first and second titles, it's sure to be her most blissfully...

PlatinumGames has amassed a rather dedicated following over the last few years; games such as The Wonderful 101 and the Bayonetta series - including the upcoming Bayonetta 3, of course - have given Nintendo fans more than enough reason to get behind the studio's works. Interestingly, Platinum has always developed games for other...
We're big fans of PlatinumGames here at Nintendo Life, and loved the Wii U exclusive Bayonetta 2 and port of the original Bayonetta. Well, those are coming to Switch in February, but something even bigger was announced during The Game Awards - Bayonetta 3 is in development as a Switch exclusive.
Henshin A Go Go Baby!
Viewtiful Joe and its sequel were among some of the best games released on the GameCube. This side scrolling beat 'em up had impressive cel-shaded graphics for its time and unique slo-mo fighting mechanics which made it lots of fun to replay time and time again. PlatinumGames' Hideki Kamiya often likes to...
Fly me to the moon
Depending on how optimistic a person you are, PlatinumGames may have just dropped a hint that Bayonetta is Switch-bound. The popular series - which began life on the PS3 and Xbox 360 before shifting to the Wii U thanks to Nintendo co-funding development - has been dormant since the second game, but has a massive base of fans...
"We’re creating it, you know"
PlatinumGames has been a long-time supporter of Nintendo and its consoles, and the company was confirmed as a Switch developer back when the console was first announced. We've not yet heard what the studio is producing for Switch but head producer Atsushi Inaba has mentioned to Japanese magazine Famitsu that it...
"We’re talking within the company even now about what to do"
Bayonetta was a cult smash when it first released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, so much so that Nintendo felt compelled to dig deep and fund development of a sequel exclusively for the Wii U. Since then, fans of the series have been waiting keenly for news of a third outing, and it...
Tatsuya Minami left with an extraordinary track record
PlatinumGames is a development studio that, for a number of keen gamers, is synonymous with quality action titles. In addition to original titles on Wii U such as The Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2, and most recently co-developed Star Fox Zero. Just recently there was surprising news that...
Star Fox Zero studio to be helmed by Kenichi Sato
The head of Japanese studio PlatinumGames has stepped down, according to a report by GamesBusiness.jp. CEO Tatsuya Minami resigned at the end of March and has been replaced by Kenichi Sato. As part of the reshuffle, Seigo Tabira and Atsushi Inaba join the management as company directors. Minami...
"IP holders also are like ‘Let Platinum Games do what they do'"
PlatinumGames has been celebrating its 10th Anniversary, and in this writer's opinion has deserved all of the plaudits that have come its way. Few studios can boast Platinum's mastery of the action genre, and it's also proven itself to be increasingly flexible in its projects. In its...
Here's to the next ten
On 2nd February PlatinumGames will celebrate its 10th Anniversary, a fact it's reminded us of as part of its New Year post to fans. The studio that evolved from key members of Clover Studio (which was funded by Capcom and produced brilliant games such as Okami) has rapidly earned a reputation for high quality and exciting...
IGN to host the reveal
Anticipation for E3 just stepped up a notch for fans of intense, bombastic and hugely entertaining games, with the news that PlatinumGames will be unveiling a new title at the show. The news comes from IGN, who will host the début announcement and footage on Tuesday 16th June at 3pm Pacific / 6pm Eastern / 11pm UK / midnight...
Kaio: King of Pirates' fate is in the hands of its publisher, Marvelous
Keiji Inafune caused a bit of a stir a week ago, satisfying the fantasies and dreams of many Mega Man fans by announcing Mighty No.9, a 'spritual successor' to the Mega Man franchise that's steadily creeping towards its crowdfunding stretch goal that will bring a Wii U release...
Kamiya unites with allies for part two of this wonderful interview
The Wonderful 101 is being released tomorrow in Europe (23rd August) and part two of Iwata Asks has now emerged. This time round the game’s director Hideki Kamiya has united with some familiar allies to assist him in his interview with Nintendo President Satoru Iwata: Atsushi...
The Bayonetta series was on the "brink of disappearing"
Hideki Kamiya, the director of The Wonderful 101, has been in Cologne, Germany to meet fans and the press ahead of the game's release in the region. Naturally, he's also taken the opportunity to talk about PlatinumGames' other Wii U exclusive, Bayonetta 2, which is due to arrive in 2014...
"This is a chance for people who usually don't play Platinum titles"
The Wonderful 101 arrives in Europe this week and on 15th September in North America, and of all the major Wii U retail releases this year is arguably the most unique. Creative, high-octane action titles are somewhat expected of its developer, PlatinumGames, but nevertheless this...
Removing confusion and doubt
The Wonderful 101 has had a slightly peculiar route to the Wii U, in terms of visibility and awareness. At E3 2012 Nintendo used its live conference to make peculiar jokes about zombies liking French food and provide a rather thorough walkthrough of Luigi's Ghost Mansion in Nintendo Land. That presentation had good...
Unite up, gamers!
It's only been two days since the last round of Nintendo Direct broadcasts, but today we have a video focused exclusively on The Wonderful 101, developed by PlatinumGames and published by Nintendo. We can expect lots of details on the upcoming release, bonkers footage and perhaps the odd memorable moment from the game's Director,...
You know you're playing a Platinum game when...
Way back in June 2012, we had the chance to play Project P-100, an exuberant new IP from PlatinumGames being published by Nintendo. It's had a name change, and its arrival has been delayed to such an extent that it's done the rounds to appear at this year's preview events; we've gone hands on with...
