Hideki Kamiya revealed that the teaser trailer Bayonetta 3 hides “many” clues to the game (via Nintendo Life).
In an interview presented in the latest issue of Famitsu, director PlatinumGames was asked about the progression of Bayonetta 3. The third game was announced in 2017, but the developer hasn’t said much more, even with the reissues of Bayonetta 1 is 2. Earlier this year, the creator of the series announced that development is “proceeding smoothly, so be sure to wait and wait for it” and that fans may expect “many other interesting things” in future updates. The Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th anniversary package it came out last week, so Famitsu took the opportunity to get information from Kamiya.
And once again, he assured that “development is going smoothly” Bayonetta 3. However, he disclosed that “there is a lot of information hidden in the teaser announcement in 2017”. If PlatinumGames is still unable to share anything, let’s look at that video. Bayonetta is having a little fun and seems to be fighting an anonymous enemy. But is it Bayonetta? Watch his guns (0:12 and help if you slow down the speed). They say “Whittingham Fair”, not “Scarborough Fair”. Now, pause it at 0:17. The witch is missing her earrings and a ribbon in her hair. This could be a new design, but it is also without its beauty brand.
The joy that imitates Bayonetta Bayonetta 1 it doesn’t even have a beauty brand. We could assume that the character we see in the trailer is not really her, and there will be an influx of Joy who is trying to revive Jubileus. Furthermore, the person who fights Bayonetta is theorized as Rodin, because the figure appears to be wearing similar clothes and the attacks are reminiscent of his style in Bayonetta 2.
We won’t know for sure until the developer shows something official in the coming months. PlatinumGames has expressed that it would like to self-publish Bayonetta games, as it is a “very important title” for the company, and there is an announcement scheduled for February 27th.
