Platinum Games is no stranger to action-packed gaming experiences. The talented team has crafted adrenaline-pumping adventures like Bayonetta 2, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and Nier: Automata in recent years, but that’s apparently just the tip of the iceberg. At BitSummit, the recent Japanese indie game conference, Platinum staff hinted that the best is yet to come.
According to Hideki Kamiya, one of Platinum’s top game designers, the company is working on a title that will “turn the action genre on its head.” It sounds like this mystery title is still fairly early in development, as Kamiya teased that it’s such a secret that many Platinum staff members don’t even know about it. Understandably, he wasn’t able to share any other details.
Development head Atsushi Inaba also gave a little insight into Platinum’s design process during the BitSummit panel. Inaba revealed that Platinum’s reputation for combo-based gameplay isn’t exactly planned. According to Inaba, Platinum just focuses on making the action fun, and the satisfying combos surface organically.
