Its been 10 years since the Bayonetta franchise started. Today, PlatinumGames is celebrating with new art designed by series artist Mari Shimazaki! In addition, PlatinumGames is holding a special campaign with prizes such as special T shirts.

Hideki Kamiya shared a message regarding the 10th anniversary of Bayonetta:

Sincerest thanks to all of you who’ve supported Bayonetta over the last ten years. Today is a momentous occasion for me, and it’s all because of your tremendous love.

Bayonetta was my very first title here at PlatinumGames, and I went into it with a lofty goal – to make the best action game I possibly could. I poured my all into the game with that feeling firmly in mind.

Now, ten years later, as I look back on those development days, I see peaks and valleys, good times and bad. But our staff pulled together through it all and, working as one, I think we managed to pull off something truly miraculous.

To everyone who’s been involved with the Bayonetta series, and to all of the Bayonetta fans who’ve helped us get here: Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I hope you’ll follow Bayonetta’s adventures, and continue to love and support her for years to come.
