Bayonetta 3 Creator Suggests Gameplay Reveal Decision is Up to Nintendo

Long after reveling upcoming action-adventure hack and slash game Bayonetta 3 at The Game Awards 2017 showcase event, developer Platinum Games and publisher Nintendo has not yet shared much update or any gameplay footage.

At this point, Platinum Games reveals that development is going very well and dev team is more than ready to show off Bayonetta 2 sequel to fans but ultimately, only Nintendo can make that decision of when to reveal something officially.

During a recent interview, series creator Hideki Kamiya states that despite wanting to show it off to people and waiting for its release, Platinum Games is not up to making a verdict on what to say and when to say it, except for Nintendo.

He also reminded everyone to an early talk about how everyone should forget about Bayonetta 3 for a while as it may take some time. Platinum Games studio head Atsushi Inaba also told fans that "Everything's OK", regarding development.

Hideki Kamiya has shared dev team's excitement to show Bayonetta 3 and how that decision is up to Nintendo.

As much as everyone is clamouring to see it, we are really, really waiting to release it too. Everyone who is working on the project is of course very proud of what we're doing and wants everyone to see what we're doing.

Earlier in January, Kamiya has teased for a possible reveal at some point later this year and even though there are only a few months remaining of 2021, he still remains coy as ever and teases to fans for a showcase during Christmas season.

Bayonetta 3 has skipped E3 2021 showcase and Nintendo claims that it simply wasn't ready for show yet. Platinum Games had to convince series fans multiple times that development is going pretty smoothly and it hasn't been cancelled yet.
