Speaking to Weekly Famitsu as part of their recent game creator interview series, Platinum Games’ Hideki Kamiya has suggested that any eventual sequel to 2009′s Bayonetta is likely to be a spin-off for a portable console.
Kamiya told the magazine that, while he is still only discussing the possibility with producer Yusuke Hashimoto over beers on the bullet-train home, his current thinking is for the game to star the character Jeanne and to be set in an Umbra Witches’ academy where she is a teacher, and to feature a lot of acrobatic “wire-action,” as well as RTS elements depicting battles between the armies of the Witches and the Lumen Sages.
He also seems to be considering the possibility of a cameo from Devil May Cry’s Dante as a special enemy who will interrupt the battles and attack both sides. This could very well happen as crossovers are all the rage at the moment, and the fact that Kamiya created Devil May Cry for Capcom.
So what do we think? How does a 3DS / Vita version of Bayonetta sound to you? Does it take away some of the sting from the console version being cancelled?
