Since its official announcement in 2017, the news Bayonet 3 on the Nintendo Switch was nonexistent. It’s almost like the game is in development hell, but we’ll never know for sure. Hideki Kamiya of Platinum Games was recently interviewed and gave a glimpse of when we’ll hear any news on Bayonet 3.
VGC: Kamiya, here’s the inevitable Bayonetta 3 question: You were recently quoted as saying you’d like to provide a public update on the game this year. Is it correct?
Kamiya: “It’s not really our position to say, but… it’s January. We’ve got to get something out, don’t we? I guess it’s safe to expect something to come out. There are still a lot of years left, that’s what I’m saying.“
VGC: By “update” do you mean something more substantial than another CGI logo??
Kamiya: “(Laughs) I understand that drives the fans crazy! In light of this my suggestion would be that maybe we should all reset and forget about Bayonetta 3. Then when something finally happens it will be a nice surprise, right?? “
Kamiya plays it very shyly here. He even suggests forgetting the whole game, which is insane given the hype surrounding him. Even VGC was somewhat amazed that we didn’t get anything beyond the game’s logo. Either way, Platinum Games is playing it very close to the vest when it comes to Bayonet 3. Hopefully we’ll hear something soon.
