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:

A new 1.4 update is now live for Override 2: Super Mech League. It comes with improved input lag, the ability to play Leagues and other single-player modes offline, and more.

The success of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is well-documented at this point. It sold incredibly well in 2020, including in Australia. In fact, it was the region’s best-selling game of the year overall.

Speaking of success, Nintendo was the top publisher of 2020 with a 16 percent market share. If you only count physical games (the company doesn’t report digital data), the number increases to 29 percent. Switch sales were up 88 percent year-over-year while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sold 88 percent more boxed copies than it did in 2019.

Here’s a look at Australia’s best-selling games of 2020:

Before Captain Toad got his own game, he was featured in Super Mario 3D World. The Wii U game originally introduced the puzzle mechanics that would later spawn an entirely standalone adventure.

Super Mario 3D World is now making a return on Switch, and those original Captain Toad levels are naturally coming back as well. Now, however, they’ll include a new addition. The official website for Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury confirms that multiplayer is supported. You’ll be able to take on the puzzle stages with up to three other players. On Wii U, they were single-player only.

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury launches for Switch on February 12.
