Platinum Games’ Hideki Kamiya has expressed interest in creating a sequel to The Wonderful 101 and in bringing the original Bayonetta to Wii U.

Speaking with IGN Benelux Kamiya was asked if he’d like to make a Wonderful 101 sequel, to which he replied, “If I get the chance, I would certainly like to make that game. I really have no idea at this point, but I would love to make a sequel to one of my own games.

“We put a tremendous amount of work into this game and it would be unfortunate if I would not get the chance to tell a new story with these characters. However, some of the bad guys you beat in this game won’t appear in a sequel. That’s kind of a depressing thought.”

When asked if he’d consider bringing the original Bayonetta to Wii U, he added, “I would love to make that happen, so that gamers unfamiliar with the first game get to play it. This is just my personal opinion, however. I have not much say over the matter.

“However, I think designers should always keep in mind that not everyone has played the previous title, even if this was released on the same platform. You have to make sure that even players who are unfamiliar with the franchise are able to keep up.”

When asked if he’d like Platinum to officially become part of the Nintendo family he concluded, “I would love that. It would be great to work more closely with Nintendo.”

What do you make of the above?
