PlatinumGames hopes to share Bayonetta 3 update at some point in 2021

Bayonetta 3 has been in development for a while now, but we’ve heard very little about the game since it was announced back in 2017.

But fans eager for an update on the Switch-exclusive title could be in for some good news later this year, though.

In an interview on Hamster’s Arcade Archives streams, Platinum’s infamously frosty lead developer, Hideki Kamiya, was asked about how progress is going on the highly-anticipated action game.

“We’ve been working on new stuff like Bayonetta 3, not that I can say too much… but I hope we can give an update during the year” the developer replied, as per a translation from Nintendo Everything.

Previously Kamiya has been a bit blunter when it comes to addressing fans that are concerned about the progress of the title. Whether it was telling worried fans to ‘throw their concerns out the window immediately’ or simply stating that development was ‘progressing smoothly’, Kamiya hasn’t exactly been eager to share updates on the game previously.

Bayonetta 3 was first revealed back in 2017 in a teaser trailer played during that year’s Game Awards showcase.

The teaser trailer offered no release date and only confirmed exclusivity to the Nintendo Switch platform, so fans are understandably hungry for any morsel of news about the project.

Here’s hoping this year – over three years since its reveal – we finally learn more about the mysterious game.
