Update: Properly not our fault.

Sega’s signed three games from Platinum Games, the studio formed from ex-Clover staffers – including Resident Evil legend Shinji Mikami – after the Capcom closed the outfit. The deal was announced at a press conference in London on Monday.

The three titles are:

  • Bayonetta, directed by DMC creator Hideki Kamiya, and is described as a “stylish action game” with “a witch battling angels”. Apparently she has guns on her feet.
  • A science-fiction RPG for the DS called Infinite Line, where you play as a starship captain, customising your ship and crew.
  • A Wii game called MadWorld. According to an attendee at the conference, the game has, “Black and white Sin City graphics, with red blood. Ultra ultra violent. Fatality moves like shoving a post through someone’s head. Chainsaw on your right arm.”
