Although Bayonetta 2 has not even been released yet, it looks like series director Yasuke Hashimoto is already thinking toward the future. In a recent interview, Hashimoto revealed that it is very likely that Bayonetta 3 could be exclusive to Nintendo platforms just as Bayonetta 2 is.
“Should the opportunity arise I’d definitely like to keep nurturing this franchise,” Hashimoto began. “In terms of nurturing the content of this game, there’s a lot that we learned from Nintendo and if possible we would love to do it again and keep nurturing our child.
I feel that it’s important to let your creativity flow and Nintendo has been able to provide us with the freedom to create what we had originally envisioned. We were able to have a lot of back-and-forth and they were able to provide objective feedback. I feel that was really good and helped push Bayonetta 2 to even higher quality.
We started out with a fundamental freedom, with Nintendo telling us to go and create the game as we saw fit. But as the game started to take shape and we were starting to put all the pieces together, they were able to point out some things that we didn’t realise ourselves. That was really helpful for us.”
Bayonetta 2 releases in the US in October. Are you looking forward to Bayonetta 2 and possibly future installments being exclusive to Nintendo platforms? We’d love to hear your thoughts below!
