Kamiya jokes that we should all 'forget Bayonetta 3' for now and 'reset'

Platinum is busy

Earlier this year, Platinum rockstar producer Hideki Kamiya explained that they'll likely have something to show for Bayonetta 3 at some point this year. So what better time to check that than (checks watch) two weeks later?

Speaking to VGC, Kamiya explains that it's still very early in the year for updates: “It's not really our position to say, but… it is. We have to get something out, don't we? that something will come out. There are still a lot of years left, that's what I'm saying. " 

Bitingly, VGC asks to provide something “more substantial than another CGI logo”. At this point, Kamiya laughs and replies, “I understand this is driving fans crazy! In light of that, my suggestion would be that maybe we should all reset and forget about Bayonetta 3. Then, when something finally does happen, it'll be a nice surprise, won't it? " 

Truth! But as Square Enix has learned time and time again, showing something way too soon can have repercussions. The problem is that Bayonetta 3 is tied so heavily to the Nintendo wagon, which creates all sorts of issues with expectations. Whenever a potential Nintendo Direct “leak” (most of which is fake or supposed) occurs, Bayonetta 3 is almost always on it or speculating on it.

It's not necessarily Platinum's fault (especially if it was Nintendo's decision to show it off early to boost the Switch hype), but that energy is now drained out into the universe. You can't put it back in the bottle!
