Platinum Games Says Happy New Year, Teases Upcoming Projects

2014 was a big year for Platinum Games, who released the Wii U exclusive Bayonetta 2 and the downloadable The Legend of Korra game. With the new year upon us, Platinum Games has released a blog post and video wishing a happy new year to their fans, while also teasing upcoming new projects from the studio.

Bayonetta 2 director Yusuke Hashimoto continues to tease his new project, which is still unannounced, while Bayonetta 2 producer Akiko Kuroda hopes to “share a lot of exciting announcements.” Hideki Kamiya shares his fandom for Takarazuka Revue, an all-female musical theater troupe, an interesting comment from the Bayonetta director. Various other employees like composers Hiroshi Yamaguchi and Masami Ueda also offer their enthusiasm for 2015.

Further in the video is president and CEO Tatsuya Minami, who cryptically hints at what’s currently happening at Platinum Games:

There are still things we’re working on that we can’t mention yet – a few, actually.

Platinum Games’ Scalebound is set to hit Xbox One in 2015, but it seems that it isn’t the only major project Platinum Games are creating in 2015. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments on what you think Platinum Games could be up to.

  • So exciting! Legend of Korra was a blast – easily one of the best $15 games you can buy, and a super fun arcadey brawler regardless – and Bayonetta 2 was amazing! I’m sure Scalebound will be awesome too, but I can’t wait to see what else they’re working on 😀

    This is a much bigger studio than I thought, even though I assumed it was big enough to house at least the two teams working on Korra and Bayonetta concurently. It looks like 80-100 people though, so what else could they be working on?! Could it be another project with Sega? Activision? Or Nintendo? Has Sony decided to join in on the, “let’s get Platinum to make us a console exclusive” party finally? Will Capcom come to their senses and ask them to make a new Onimusha or Devil May Cry? What about Metal Gear Rising 2? Whatever it is, it’s certain to be a blast! Can’t wait to find out, and to see more of Scalebound, in 2015.
