A Little Angel Teases Bayonetta News

By Spencer . August 2, 2010 . 12:42am

imageA single tweet from Bayonetta producer Yusuke Hashimoto is making message boards climax.


“Good morning. We should be able to reveal new news related to Bayo[netta] this week, look forward to it,” Hashimoto posted on Twitter. Before you get *too* excited this may not be a game. It could be for, perhaps, Bayonetta goods.


While Platinum Games developed Bayonetta, the Osaka studio does not own the intellectual property. Sega does. When Sega announced their partnership with Platinum Games it covered four titles. Vanquish, which comes out in October, will be the final game under the initial agreement.


Sega has not publicly announced plans to extend their contract with Platinum Games so far.

  • Happy Gamer

    excited but after reading bottom, gotta love business politics. But hey people gotta work live eat.

  • This is probably asking for too much, but Platinum Games, how about making up with Capcom and release an Okami game?

    Also I hope those Bayonetta goods will turn out unique, or strange. I love weird merchandise.

    • The news may not be Bayonetta goods! The tease didn’t say what it was for and I didn’t want to imply that it was, 100%, a new Bayonetta game.

      • Ah crap, I misread your post! Next time I shouldn’t read the news this late at night.

    • Didn’t he say, though, that he wanted to make an Okami sequel until Capcom announced one and now, like Devil May Cry, it feels tainted to him?

  • Kibbitz

    Counting out Bayonetta and Vanquish, what’s the other two titles?

    • Madworld and Infinite Space.

      • Kibbitz

        Ah, thanks.

    If it’s not Bayonetta 2 (why not? it selled pretty good in the west), bayonetta merchandise is also good.

  • Bayonetta brand Wooden Ponies confirmed.

    I’m gonna assume it’s a Japan-only cell phone game or a teaser site for a Japan-only cell phone game, then (hopefully) be delightfully surprised when it’s absolutely anything else!

  • cowcow

    She’s gonna be in Marvel vs Capcom 3!

  • Hmm why do I have this feeling that Bayonetta, Jeane and someone else will be in a new game and it would be a little similar to Charlie’s Angels but that’s just me.

  • thebanditking

    If I were Sega I would sign them on for another 4 games. Outside of whats left of AM2, and the Valkyria Chronicles/Skies of Arcadia team Sega doen’t have that much to rely on, and given that Bayonetta would likely not turn out as well with another developer Sega would be stupid to not keep Platinum on board for that series alone.

  • Screw Sega. It makes me really sad if Sega does indeed own the rights to these games! Didn’t Platinum/Clover learn their lesson with Capcom???

    • Joanna

      I agree with you, but maybe this was the only way they could get Sega to publish/fund their games? :(

    @krokounleashed that’s exactly what I was thinking
