Platinum: ‘Would love’ for Bayonetta 3 to be made with Nintendo

Platinum Games seems to have enjoying working with Nintendo on Bayonetta 2 and The Wonderful 101. They may be making Scalebound exclusively for Xbox One but Platinum’s Yusuke Hashimoto says that the developer might considering making Bayonetta 3 a Nintendo exclusive in the future.

Should the opportunity arise I’d definitely like to keep nurturing this franchise. In terms of nurturing the content of this game, there’s a lot that we learned from Nintendo and if possible we would love to do it again and keep nurturing our child.

Of course Bayonetta 2 has to sell well in October when it hits Wii U. The franchise didn’t fare too well commercially on PS3/Xbox 360 years ago. It did poor enough for Sega to balk at the idea of financing Bayo 2.

Then again it seems like Nintendo isn’t afraid to fund games that are critical successes and offer fun gameplay even if they are destined for the bargain bin. That’s an admirable trait even if its a risk they can’t always afford to take.
