It looks like the developers at Platinum Games really have their hands full this year.
In a recent interview with Gematsu, the studio’s producer Atsushi Inaba and game designer Takahisa Taura spoke at length about the company’s 2019 plans. They go through a great breadth of topics – and eventually touch upon Astral Chain and Bayonetta 3. Additionally, Inaba also reiterated his interest in publishing The Wonderful 101 for Nintendo Switch.
Check out some highlights below.
On 2019 titles and other new projects
Inaba: “Well first, Taura’s Astral Chain is going to be released. And other than that there’s potential to release news about new titles we have on the way. And all this news would bring a major change to Platinum Games, I believe.”
On the idea of porting The Wonderful 101 to Switch
Inaba: “Yeah, I think I said that on multiple occasions. And I’m glad that I did. So if you could be patient with it, that’ll be great.”
On Bayonetta 3’s current development
Inaba: “Sorry, again we can’t share anything. Although I can assure you, development is going smoothly. So please wait for further updates.”
On Astral Chain
Inaba: “We want to share more, but we can’t.”
Taura: “It’s not far from release, so there will be news soon. …Astral Chain is coming out on August 30, so stay tuned for more information. We hope you can get a copy of the game and enjoy it, and we can guarantee that its good.”
