PlatinumGames has become somewhat legendary for creating some of the best games of the action genre. And they might just have another hit on their hands as PlatinumGames new title is said to “Turn the action genre on its head.”
Word of Platinum’s new game comes from a panel at Bitsummit in Kyoto, Japan. The panel was led by PlatinumGames director Hideki Kamiya and head producer Atsushi Inaba. During the panel discussion of the studio’s future work was brought up. It was here that Inaba confirmed that the studio was currently working on several new games, but that one unannounced title would “turn the action genre on its head.”
Of course, this is a big statement coming from a studio that many would say have already redefined the genre of action gaming. The two went on to confirm that only a few of the employees at PlatinumGames even know about this yet unannounced game. Which leads us to believe that the game is still very early in its development cycle.
Even though not much yet is known of this new mystery action game, it is still exciting to think what PlatinumGames could possibly be cooking up. The studio has worked on a number of very well received games including Bayonetta 1 and 2, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, The Wonderful 101, and last years highly regarded Nier: Automata.
Of course with their successes have come a few more forgettable titles such as The Legend of Korra and Star Fox Zero. Regardless, PlatinumGames still manages to stir up some hype with any new title they announce. Their big upcoming title Bayonetta 3 was revealed at last years Game Awards with plenty of fanfare. It’s likely we should see some presence from the studio at this years E3 conference.
