The often outspoken Hideki Kamiya from PlatinumGames, yes that’s with no space, has said he wants a remake of Viewtiful Joe or Devil May Cry, a new Okami, or a game where Dante from Devil May Cry and Bayonetta team-up.
Is A Viewtiful Joe Remake Too Good To Be True?
There’s one problem with all of this – he needs Capcom’s permission to do so. Speaking with Dengeki PlayStation, Kamiya had this to say:
I want to work on a Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe remake, or a true sequel for Okami. A cooperation with Dante (from Devil May Cry) and Bayonetta might also be fun. Dear Capcom, if it’s okay with someone like me, I will help anytime. Best regards. Everyone, bow down your heads together with me!
A new Viewtiful Joe would be welcome, it’s only been 12 years since the last one, Double Trouble!, hit the humble Nintendo DS after all.
That being said, a team-up with Dante and Bayonetta could be just crazy enough to work. More Okami would be great too. In fact, why not all of them? I wonder if Capcom is listening…
