Bayonetta first released on this day ten years ago (though it wasn’t on a Nintendo platform back then). PlatinumGames are celebrating the 10th anniversary of one of their most popular franchises with the special piece of artwork you see above, which was illustrated by Bayonetta series character designer Mari Shimazaki. They’ve also set up a special website here; among other things, you can find the following message from Bayonetta series director Hideki Kamiya there:
Ten Years of Bayonetta! A Message from Hideki KamiyaSincerest 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.
