PlatinumGames, the Japanese video game company known for the upcoming release Bayonetta 3, made headlines earlier this week when it hired Nintendo veteran Takao Yamane as Vice President and Chief Business Officer.

Now, in the same Famitsu interview (translated in a round-up courtesy of Ishaan via Install Base), Platinum's plans for the year ahead have kind of been revealed - with Yamane suggesting fans could see more of the mysterious new game Project G.G. next year around the time of June.

At this stage, it could be at E3 or Summer Game Fest, but the team hasn't decided exactly when all will be revealed according to the translation. Project G.G. as you might recall is a "brand new IP" from PlatinumGames and is described as the "powerful climax to the Hideki Kamiya superhero trilogy" - (already comprised of Viewtiful Joe and The Wonderful 101).

The interview goes on to mention how Project G.G. will be self-published and will be getting a physical and digital release worldwide. Yamane apparently sees a lot of potential in this large-scale project driven by Kamiya and Atsushi Inaba - with the game expected to set a new standard for the company.

In addition to Project G.G., Platinum has also teased the preparation of another in-house IP. At this stage, it's unclear what exactly this game might be. Platinum has "several unannounced titles" in the works for other publishers as well. Development on some of these projects has just started, while others are believed to be in the final stages of production - with publishers expected to reveal them when they're ready.

Are you looking forward to Platinum's future now that a former Nintendo staffer has joined the team? What would you like to see from this company beyond Bayonetta 3? Leave a comment down below.
