Platinum Games is currently working on games that are exclusive to the Nintendo Switch. These games include titles such as Astral Chain and Bayonetta 3. It seems that the Japanese developer is working on something else as well.
Platinum Games’ studio head Atsushi Inaba talked about a new secret project that has not been announced yet. Inaba mentioned that the game is something new and has never been done before. The following is what he had to say in this regard:
Right now we’re in the middle of designing something that has never been done before. I know a lot of people say that, but the game we’re working on truly is unlike anything else. Even for our varied history of veteran game developers, this is something that has never been designed before. So from a game design perspective, we’re very excited right now.
Bayonetta 3 is going to come to the Nintendo Switch and we have got hints that the new game will be a bit different as compared to the upcoming one. Platinum Games also worked on Scalebound which was canceled by Microsoft after years of development. I still hope that Microsoft has kept development going secretly.
E3 is around the corner and while I am pretty sure that Scalebound is not going to be announced at the event, I can still hope. It is what keeps us going day after day. We will keep you up to date regarding the game that Platinum Games is working on right now so stay tuned for more updates.
The next game that the developer is going to release is Astral Chain and it is going to release this summer on the Nintendo Switch.
Let us know what you think about Platinum Games working on a new title which has never been done before and what you think this game could be.
