When PlatinumGames is asked about Bayonetta 3, you tend to get the same response. Aside from the studio constantly reassuring fans that development is going well, we haven’t really heard much about the game. That’s been the case since the project was originally announced at The Game Awards in December 2017.

There’s still no word on when Bayonetta 3 will release, but perhaps we’ll finally hear more this year. That’s based on a brief comment from PlatinumGames’ Hideki Kamiya.

During one of the recent Arcade Archives streams, Kamiya – who is known for his appreciation of classic games – had a phone conversation with Hamster boss Satoshi Hamada. Kamiya ended up suggesting that there could be a status update on Bayonetta 3 and other upcoming titles from the studio in 2021.

Here’s the full transcript, as translated by Nintendo Everything:

Super Nintendo World was scheduled to open to the public on February 4, 2021 in Osaka, Japan. However, according to a statement obtained by Bloomberg tech reporter Takashi Mochizuki on Twitter, that date has now been pushed back by Universal Studios Japan.


The apparent reason for this opening date change is the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in Osaka.
