Fans Should 'Forget About Bayonetta 3' For Now, Says Platinum's Hideki Kamiya
"I understand it’s driving the fans crazy!". It's now been just over three years since Bayonetta 3 was first confirmed to be in development for Nintendo Switch, but since then, we've had little to go on other than little reassurances telling us that things are going "very well," "very smoothly," "fine," and "very well" again.

They ended up being for Platinum Games Tokyo, Project G.G., The Wonderful 101: Remastered, and an April Fools' joke, which didn't go down too well at the time. It's also got one special "bonus stage" announcement that it still has to make.

Kamiya still can't
Kamiya still can't "say too much" about Bayonetta 3 but hopes to "update during the year"
Bayonetta creator Hideki Kamiya has confirmed we'll learn more about Bayonetta 3 "during the year". The Nintendo Switch-exclusive third instalment of the bewitching franchise was revealed in 2017, but developer Platinum Games has been pretty taciturn on progress since then, only infrequently breaking cover to insist that yes, the game is still in development. The most recent of these updates came via Arcade Archives streams, in which Kamiya confirmed that Platinum had "been working on new stuff like Bayonetta 3", but he couldn't "say too much".

The Wonderful 101: Remastered now has a two-hour demo on Switch, PS4, and PC
If you've yet to experience the chaotic splendour that is The Wonderful 101: Remastered but still remain sufficiently intrigued, developer Platinum Games is now offering a free two-hour demo of the game for PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC. Available to download now, the new Wonder-Size Cadet demo (as it's officially known) features Wonderful 101: Remastered's complete prologue and Operation 001 - offering a reasonable introduction to the game's decidedly idiosyncratic isometric action, in which players command a screen full of miniature heroes, battling in unison. In-game currency and support items are provided from the off in order to get the action moving, and all progress can be carried over to the full game, should you decide to make a purchase. Read more
