Rivals to the end

Platinum Games is responsible for two of the Wii U's most eagerly-awaited third-party exclusives: Bayonetta 2 and The Wonderful 101. These two games look set to make good use of the console's unique GamePad controller, and will surely contain the kind of over-the-top action that Platinum is famous for.

Hideki Kamiya — who is directing The Wonderful 101 — has revealed to Nintendo Everything that he is seated right next to the Bayonetta 2 team, so he can see their progress by looking over the top of his desk. Kamiya says that this drives him to make The Wonderful 101's action scenes even more intense.

It's encouraging to know that these two amazing-looking titles are actually driving the teams behind them to make things even more explosive and entertaining. Platinum Games certainly sounds like a fun place to work, put it that way.

Don't forget, you can read our E3 2013 impressions of Bayonetta 2 here, as well as an earlier preview of The Wonderful 101 here.
