I guess Twitter polls about what cult franchise he should rejuvenate are sort of just Hideki Kamiya’s thing now. Two weeks ago he had two polls asking what sequel fans wanted, Okami vs. Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe vs. Okami (Okami won both polls), and just the other day he made two new polls, asking fans which sequel and which spin-off they’d like to see from two different sets of four options.

In the sequel poll, Kamiya’s got Devil May Cry, Viewtiful Joe, Okami, and Bayonetta. In the spin-off poll, he’s got various character names for who would presumably be the protagonist in a spin-off from their particular series: Sparda (of Devil May Cry), Trish (again from Devil May Cry), Jeanne (of Bayonetta), and Wonder Blue (of The Wonderful 101).

The polls are already closed, and the results are fairly interesting. Wonder Blue is the victor in the spin-off poll, and – much to my own pleasure – Okami came out on top in the sequel poll.

While the polls were going, Kamiya commented, wondering just what kind of a game a Wonder Blue spin-off would be.

There’s nothing confirming that Kamiya will actually use this data to decide what games to develop next, but it’s still fun to talk about it. What would you like to see from the famed cult developer in terms of sequels and spin-offs?

Our Verdict

I write editorials here at Gamnesia and occasionally some news (though far less often than I used to). Here's some of my work, long-form game essays, if you have any interest in that sort of stuff: The Amount of Content in a Game Has Nothing to do with its Price A Game's Atmosphere is Defined by its Mechanics, Not its Aesthetic The Witcher 3's Introduction is Terribly Paced and Too Restrictive of its Players I'm looking forward to The Last Guardian (had it pre-ordered since 2010), Rime, Night in the Woods, and Vane. If I had a niche, it would probably be the somewhat higher fidelity indie games, as take up most of the spots on that list. I'm also developing a no-budget video game with a friend, and you can follow me on Twitter (@TheVioletBarry) to hear about that and anything else I feel like saying. Film, games, it's that sort of stuff.
