Hideki Kamiya Wants to Expand PlatinumGames, Tell More Bayonetta Stories

    Kamiya has many plans in store at PlatinumGames.

    PlatinumGames vice president Hideki Kamiya appears to have many plans in store for the Bayonetta franchise and the company according to a recent interview in Japan. The game creator discussed Project G.G, increasing staff at PlatinumGames, and the potential future for the Bayonetta series.

    In an interview with IGN Japan, Kamiya revealed Project G.G has a much bigger scope than some of PlatinumGames’ smaller projects like The Wonderful 101 and Sol Cresta. Currently, PlatinumGames employs roughly 300 staffers, but the total employee count is expected to grow as Project G.G development progresses. Kamiya would like to have roughly 500 PlatinumGames employees by 2025. Further, he thinks of a future where PlatinumGames has 1,000 total employees.

    Hideki Kamiya doesn’t want the Bayonetta franchise to end, and it’s his mission to continue the series in any way he can. He asks fans to believe in his stance for the Bayonetta series since he has so many stories to tell. One of these stories will be depicted in Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon for Nintendo Switch. Kamiya explains that he has many ideas for future mainline Bayonetta games and spin-offs as well. An idea of his includes a game featuring Jeanne as the main character.

    Bayonetta 3 is available now for Nintendo Switch. Lastly, Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon launches March 17, 2023 for Nintendo Switch.
