Platinum Kinda Sorta Teased Bayonetta Switch

 Platinum Kinda Sorta Teased Bayonetta Switch

Commemorating the launch of their Japanese Twitter account, Platinum tweeted an original piece of Bayonetta artwork by Yusuke Hashimoto. Featuring her Bayonetta 2 design on a blue background, and her Bayonetta design on red, a fan noted how it resembled the red/blue Switch joy-cons. Platinum liked the tweet.



It might seem a little much to get too excited based on this fairly tame bit of social media interaction — after all, social media managers will like tweets more often than they won’t — but it’s not at all impossible Bayonetta Switch will happen in some form. Platinum Games have already expressed the desire to revisit Bayonetta in future.



It could end up being a port of the Wii U Bayonetta games. After all, according to Metacritic Bayonetta 2 is the third highest rated Wii U exclusive. It wouldn’t be great if such a fantastic game ended up trapped forever on a console that comparatively few people bought.


If they do end up doing a Bayonetta 3, which we’d love to see, it’d make sense to tide us over with the two previous games remastered for a current console. As Bayonetta 2 was funded by Nintendo, it will more than likely maintain Nintendo allegiance. They’re paying the bills, after all.



Currently only Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has been a Switch port of a previously Wii U exclusive title. More are predicted to come, but have not yet been announced.


Of course, we’re probably getting hyped up over nothing with this “tease”, but it’s as good a time as any to rally and show support for Bayonetta Switch as a concept. It makes it all the more likely to actually happen. Though, it wouldn’t be surprising if it’s already in the works.

Spread the love!
