'Bayonetta 2' Or A Spin-Off Title Sound Good To Platinum Games


If there's one thing that the team at Platinum Games was able to do in "Bayonetta," it was to pack in more angles and perspectives than I have ever witnessed in a gaming experience. Even if the story came off (at least in the English translation) as a rather abstract concept, there are currently ideas festering for a sequel or spin-off.

“We obviously have love for the work we have created, so I don’t see anything wrong with 'Bayonetta 2,'" Platinum Games director Hideki Kamiya told Game Informer. "Personally, I'd like to approach the world of Bayonetta from a different angle, in the form of a spin-off."

There are enough characters and plot (a term I use loosely) elements in the first game to go in a number of directions, so putting together a follow-up should feasible.

Until I see the story on a flow chart or watch all of those cut scenes back to back I'm not sure that I would be able to call them on it if they broke continuity. I am all for seeing more absurdly designed Power Rangers-style beasts on steroids, though.
