Nintendo executives reported that Bayonetta 3 is still alive and well and making good progress in an interview. However, responding to their absence during E3 2021, the executives said Nintendo would only present it when it is truly ready to be shown to the public.
Bayonetta 3 is still in development but is making good progress, according to Nintendo executives. In a video interview with GameSpot’s Tamoor Hussain, Nintendo of America’s senior product marketing manager Bill Trinen and Nate Bihldorff, senior director of localization, were asked why the PlatinumGames title was not shown during the E3 2021 presentation of Nintendo.
“Surely it still exists, I can confirm that,” Bihldorff replied. “And I will say that not only does it exist, but it is progressing well,” Trinen added. When asked about the absence of Bayonetta 3 during E3, the two replied: “We like to show things when the developer is ready to show them. So we didn’t present it at E3, but stay tuned”.
Nintendo’s third installment of the Bayonetta action series was first announced via a short teaser at The Game Awards in December 2017, but nothing has been seen since.
In addition to Bayonetta 3, Platinum is working on Project GG, the action game with a giant hero described as the “pinnacle” of Kamiya’s superhero trilogy, following Viewtiful Joe and The Wonderful 101.
