Bayonetta director "believes" a sequel is coming. REJOICE!

Good old Twitter. Always there for us when press releases aren't. While there' s been no official word from publisher Sega or developer Platinum games, Bayonetta and Devil May Cry designer honcho Hideki Kamiya has just made like a virtual birdy and poured some hopeful news out of his big loose digi-beak.

When asked if there will be a sequel, Kamiya-san simply and enigmantically replied, "I believe so". Obviously how definite a sign of a sequel this is depends entirely on how you imagine his tone of voice when you read that, but in my head he's all arch and knowing, with a raised eyebrow and playful stroke of his beard. So that's confirmed then. Probably out next week.

And a later fan tweet saw him reply, "she'll be back if you believe so". Which sounds slighly more definitive, but also slightly odd. I suspect it means that Bayonetta is like a fairy, and thus gains her strength from our collective belief. Every time a person says they don't believe in Umbra Witches, an Umbra Witch dies. So don't you dare bloody say it.

Come on people, join me. Together we can make this happen.

I do believe in witches.

I do believe in witches.

I do believe in witches...

(But let's just hope Kamiya-san doesn't make her younger with white hair or something. That would be an a disaster without precedent in the entire history of mankind, would make the game instantly terrible, and I'd never, ever get over it)

    After the awful version they made for the Playstation 3, I wouldn't mind if this didn't get a sequel. If you're gonna make a multiplatform game, make sure it plays good on all the consoles it's being relesed on.

    I o believe in witches. I paid $80 for the soundtrack and would do it again for another game. I hope there is a Bayonetta Easter egg in Vanquish.

    And I find myself not caring. Like Brett, I didn't like the game. Unlike Brett, I didn't like the random references to past games that were shoehorned in just to appeal to nostalgia goggles.

    I believe in witches! God, this cheers me up a bit after that horrendous DMC trailer. Show 'em how its done Kamiya! Oh yeah, I don't believe in that annoying Jeanne witch. Is she dead now?
  • AnonymouZ - September 17, 2010 3:19 p.m.

    i would NEVER get over it. unless she had a different set of clothes/hair... as in, less of it.
