Been praying for a sequel to Okami or Viewtiful Joe? Well, don’t cry to PlatinumGames’ Hideki Kamiya about it.
During this year’s PAX East event, the infamous game producer sat down to address various fan questions from the floor. In particular, one attendee asked Kamiya about the possibility of developing follow-ups to cult-classic series like Okami – to which he replied as follows:
“Okami 2.. Scalebound.. Viewtiful Joe 3.. Dante VS Bayonetta.. Devil May Cry 0.. I want to make everything! ..please email Capcom”
So while Kamiya seems 100% on board to make these sequels a reality, he’d still need Capcom to give their blessing – since they own the IP to all these franchises. If you’re desperate to see these series continue, perhaps you should heed Kamiya’s advice and drop Capcom some emails!
