Developer of Bayonetta and Nier: Automata wants to issue two of its own IPs

Last year we learned that the famous Japanese team Platinum Games, the creator of Bayonetta and NieR, is planning to release a new game that will own also itself, and it has recently been revealed that it is not just one title but two independent IPs. Namely, executive director and producer Atsushi Inaba said the studio expanded its original vision by including another potential video game, but both projects are for now hiding behind a dense fog.

Furthermore, Inaba stated that they could not "compile an AAA title worth 10 million dollars, because they do not have such a kind of money as an independent developer". So, about 20 people will work on each game, but they do not plan to "turn to the indie road". Of course, Platinum will do a lot in its own way and does not intend to seek ideas from other companies. "For us, the reason because of we want to do this is to motivate the people that work here. We want to give them a chance to make their own video game", concluded Atsushi.

I strongly agree.
After the huge success of those games, and the passion the studios have to create wonderful games, who wouldn't like such news? Go hard or go home, right?
Many congratulations to them. It's studios/people like these that will also be the next big thing in the gaming industry.

(EA, please start taking notes, okay?)


They do quality work, excited to see what they come up with.


Incredibly exited about these news! I look forward to their games since I am absolutely in love with Bayonetta and most everything Platinum has ever released!


That's amazing. I'm waiting for more news.


wow, looks nice



 about 20 people will work on each game


This is really a good idea, I'm looking forward to the new game, hope they will spend more efforts on the game quality and optimization


Yes please! I am tired of all the sequels of game and would love a new world/setting
