Project GG

PlatinumGames recently announced Project G.G., a new game from Hideki Kamiya. It’s been referred to as the third game in Kamiya’s hero saga following Viewtiful Joe and The Wonderful 101. They aren’t really linked in any way, but it’s the hero concept that binds them together.

One could say that Viewtiful Joe and The Wonderful 101 opted for a stylized approach with an animated look. Based on what we’ve seen of Project G.G. so far, it seems to be going for a more realistic look.

During a panel at PAX East 2020 last week, Kamiya commented on Project G.G.’s visual direction. He shared the following:

Earlier this week, PlatinumGames announced Project G.G. from director Hideki Kamiya. It’s intended to be a third part of Kamiya’s hero trilogy following Viewtiful Joe and The Wonderful 101. This time around, the theme is based around a giant hero.

PlatinumGames had previously mentioned to Famitsu that the studio was targeting pretty much every platform with Project G.G. While speaking with IGN, studio head Atsushi Inaba officially named Switch as one of those systems the company is pursuing for the new title. PlatinumGames ultimately hopes to release on all main platforms when the game launches.

PlatinumGames has officially announced Project G.G., it’s newest project from director Hideki Kamiya. Kamiya himself has shared a lengthy message and the first teaser trailer is in.

Here’s Kamiya’s piece in full:

As was promised last week, PlatinumGames has announced its newest project in the latest issue of Famitsu. It’s currently going by Project GG, which will be directed by Hideki Kamiya.

Platforms have yet to be confirmed, but PlatinumGames is targeting all current devices. Given that the company has been a strong supporter of Nintendo, this one should end up on Switch.
