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…
PlatinumGames might be working on Bayonetta 1 and 2 for the Switch. The company have opened up an official Japanese Twitter account and are ‘teasing’ fans.
The new Japanese Twitter account tweeted the image below and then promptly pinned the tweet to their page:
Bayonetta fans will know that red and blue are the main colours for game 1 and 2 respectively, but people are making the connection that these specific colours resemble the red and blue Joy-Cons of the Neon Switch.
PlatinumGames then liked and retweeted a tweet making the very same connection.
It wouldn’t be too much of a surprise to see the games come over to the Nintendo Switch, especially as there are quite a few people who never played the excellent second game in the series – exclusive to the ill-fated Wii U. Would you be interested in Bayonetta 1 and 2 for the Switch? Let us know in the comments below, if you please.
