    The first official statement by companies involved.

    PlatinumGames issued a statement regarding Jennifer Hale and the recent Bayonetta 3 controversy involving original voice actor Hellena Taylor. Nintendo has not issued a statement yet.

    The Bayonetta 3 statement by PlatinumGames was rather brief but encourages fans to remain respectful to all parties. The company appreciates all who have contributed to the Bayonetta series and offers its full support to Jennifer Hale.

    Here’s what PlatinumGames had to say on its official Twitter account:

    We at PlatinumGames offer our sincerest appreciation to everyone who has contributed to creating the Bayonetta series over the years, as well as the community that has served as its foundation.
    We give our full support to Jennifer Hale as the new Bayonetta, and align with everything in her statement.
    We ask people to refrain from any further comments that would disrespect Jennifer or any of the other contributors to the series.

    Many of the details surrounding the Bayonetta 3 controversy are being disputed by outlets and Hellena Taylor. As a result, key information has not been outright confirmed due to internal factors such as non-disclosure agreements. Hale wishes the situation is resolved respectfully between all parties.

    Lastly, Bayonetta 3 launches October 28 for Nintendo Switch.
