Bayonetta Celebrates 10th Anniversary With A Message From Hideki Kamiya And A Special Illustration


Bayonetta celebrates its 10th anniversary today since its release on PS3 and Xbox 360 in Japan in October 29, 2009. PlatinumGames shared a special illustration by series character designer Mari Shimazaki and a message from series director Hideki Kamiya.


In celebration of Bayonetta’s 10th anniversary, PlatinumGames started a Twitter and Instagram submission campaign to win exclusive prizes including special T-shirts featuring the above illustration by Mari Shimazaki and more. You can check out more on that here.


Here’s the message from HIdeki Kamiya about the ten years of Bayonetta:

Sincerest thanks to all of you who’ve supported Bayonetta over the last ten years. Today is a momentous occasion for me, and it’s all because of your tremendous love.

Bayonetta was my very first title here at PlatinumGames, and I went into it with a lofty goal – to make the best action game I possibly could. I poured my all into the game with that feeling firmly in mind.

Now, ten years later, as I look back on those development days, I see peaks and valleys, good times and bad. But our staff pulled together through it all and, working as one, I think we managed to pull off something truly miraculous.

To everyone who’s been involved with the Bayonetta series, and to all of the Bayonetta fans who’ve helped us get here: Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I hope you’ll follow Bayonetta’s adventures, and continue to love and support her for years to come.


Hideki Kamiya




Bayonetta first released in Japan for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 29, 2009. It released in North America and Europe in January 2010.
