Platinum Games has given its strongest indication yet that we’ll see spandex-wearing witch Bayonetta in action again soon, saying a sequel to this year’s OTT action title will happen “when the time is right.”
Atsushi Inaba, co-founder of the Japanese developer, further told Eurogamer it “would love” to make a second title in the series.
“There is no concrete plan or schedule that we can talk about,” he said.
“It’s not like [creator Hideki] Kamiya said, ‘OK, we’re going to make this.
“But Bayonetta is definitely a special IP for us. We loved creating that game. We think it was a really good game.
“We would love to make a sequel to it when the time is right. That’s all we can say.”
A sequel seemed to be all but confirmed by Kamiya last month on Twitter, saying Bayonetta would return “if you believe so.”
The original Bayonetta launched at the start of this year in the west for PS3 and 360.
