Bayonetta 3 has honestly been one of the biggest mysteries on the Nintendo Switch, to the level that it was announced in 2017…and yet we’re coming up on 4 years since that announcement and nothing has been definitively stated about its release date. To the point where Platinum Games has said we should “forget about” the game for a while until they unveil it again.
“It was more of a not definitely ‘something will come out this year’, but if there is a year, then something should happen, right? If you remember last time, I said that even though everyone was asking about Bayonetta 3, maybe you should tell everyone to forget about it for a while. I kind of need to keep to that stance for now because ultimately, it’s not our decision what to say and when to say it.
As much as everyone is clamoring to see it, we are really, really waiting to release it too. Everyone who is working on the project is of course very proud of what we’re doing and wants everyone to see what we’re doing.
As much as fans are waiting for it, we are waiting for the day when we can show it. We want everyone to cheer us on as we run to the final stretch. We want to show it too!”
Platinum Games did make it clear that “everything’s ok” with the title, so it’s not like the situation with Metroid Prime 4. It’s just that…they can’t show anything off yet for one reason or another.
