Bayonetta creator ‘doesn’t really get a chance’ to do sequels

Friday, 6th December 2013 00:06 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Bayonetta creator Hideki Kamiya isn’t in direct charge of the upcoming sequel, and not entirely by choice.

“It’s not that I don’t want to make sequels – I really do. But considering the nature of my position, I don’t really get a chance to,” the former Capcom developer turned Platinum Games boss told Famitsu, as translated by Kotaku.

“Somebody needs to offer new entertainment to gamers and do the work of sowing seeds that can later grow to be strong pillars. It sounds a little overblown, but I’ve come to believe that is my purpose.

“If I had been involved with Devil May Cry 2, then Viewtiful Joe and Okami might never have been made. If I was directing Bayonetta 2, then I wouldn’t have been able to make The Wonderful 101.”

Bayonetta 2 is a Wii U exclusive due in 2014.

    He’s still supervising it though, so hopefully it turns out great. For me, this is the game that gets me into next gen.

    Interesting, compared to Hideo Kojima, it seems that Kamiya San is much more “brave”.
