There is quite a bit of hype this week over Platinum Games having some videos of Bayonetta acting as an English teacher on their YouTube channel. I thought it was funny as hell and just a fun and interesting way to promote the release of Bayonetta on PC... But then the internet started coming up with all these theories that this is a tease that there could be a Bayonetta 3 announcement happening soon.
At first, I sort of laughed and thought that it was a bit of a stretch, but damn it, now I am on this train of thought and have high hopes for a third Bayonetta game. I loved the first Bayonetta and thought the second was even better. I always thought it was kind of weird that Nintendo would get into bed with Platinum Games to make Bayonetta 2 happen, but it was still a fantastic game and one that I have actually played through a couple of times.
Bayonetta is just so weird, over the top and badass that I fell in love with the series right away. While there is a bit of a cult following with Bayonetta it never really hit mainstream success which is a real shame as I feel the game deserved it. Maybe, Platinum Games are hopeful that this PC version is going to spark a real interest in the game so that they can make another one.
But what about Bayonetta 2? I cannot fathom the world where Nintendo would allow Bayonetta 2 to appear on any other console, except the Switch of course which would be cool. Nintendo is very protective of themselves so I would be amazed to hear that they helped finance Bayonetta 2, only for there to be some kind of clause that would allow Platinum Games to port the game to a Sony or Microsoft system a few years later.
So while it may have just been Platinum Games having some fun, I like most other Bayonetta fans really hope there is more to this and another game is coming. Heck, I would even take Bayonetta 1 and 2 on the Nintendo Switch!
