While many companies choose to reveal projects early on, sometimes too early, Nintendo has generally gone the other way and has kept most of its projects shrouded in mystery. Although 2020 did not see many AAA titles for Nintendo Switch, many hope that 2021 will finally see the launch of a series of unmissable exclusives for the Big N. One of those games, in particular, is definitely Bayonetta 3.
The creator of the Hideki Kamiya series finally gave fans some hope when he confirmed that development on Bayonetta 3 is going very well, but that for the moment “we should all reset and forget about Bayonetta 3.”
Originally announced with a simple teaser image at The Game Awards 2017, Bayonetta 3 has strayed so far from the spotlight that fans have begun to wonder over the years if the project was eventually canceled.
However, the producer has released some news on the title during the last few days: ” It’s not really our position to say, but… it’s January. We’ve got to have something come out, right? I guess it’s safe to expect that something will come out. There’s still a lot of the year left is what I’m saying. I understand it’s driving the fans crazy! In light of that, my suggestion would be that maybe we should all reset and forget about Bayonetta 3. Then when something finally does happen, it will be a nice surprise, won’t it?”
It’s not the first time that Kamiya has hinted at the potential presentation of Bayonetta 3 in 2021, so the news itself isn’t new. While this is probably not what fans were hoping to hear, it looks like the decision is out of Kamiya’s hands for now.
However, the producer still offers some hope, saying it’s still January, and hinting that news of some kind is likely to come as the year progresses. After all, 2021 is only just beginning, so it’s a fact that new information about the game may come.
