Keep in mind Platinum 4? Yeah, that’s nonetheless taking place.
It’s been nearly a yr since PlatinumGames kicked off their “Platinum 4” marketing campaign, teasing 4 upcoming main bulletins that they might make in fast succession. The primary three turned out to be The Fantastic 101: Remastered, the announcement of Venture G.G, and the formation of a brand new studio.
The fourth announcement turned out to be a little bit of a curveball, with PlatinumGames pulling an April Idiot’s joke (to blended responses), earlier than lastly teasing the precise remaining announcement of the bunch. It’s been many months since that occurred although, and that announcement nonetheless isn’t right here… so the place is it?
Talking in a latest interview with VGC, PlatinumGames’ Hideki Kamiya spoke about the identical, saying that the COVID-19 pandemic threw a wrench into the timeline, however that it’s nonetheless going to occur sooner or later.
“We need to reveal it on the proper time, however what we will say for the time being is that this was at all times meant because the ‘Platinum 4’, so I feel that the expectations needs to be for one thing additional,” he stated. “That being stated, that is one thing that we’ve had within the works for some time.

Kamiya went on to counsel that followers ought to hold their expectations in verify, and that the announcement goes to be a little bit smaller in scale.
“If we had to decide on one finish of the spectrum, then I’d most likely say it’s one thing a little bit smaller in scale,” he stated. “Nevertheless it’s nonetheless one thing I’m hoping followers will get a kick out of.”
PlatinumGames are hoping to (lastly) give an extended overdue replace on Bayonetta 3 this yr, so right here’s hoping the 2 are linked. There’s additionally Babylon’s Fall, which they’re creating with Sq. Enix, and I’m positive there are lots of individuals who’re dying to study extra about that recreation.
