Hideki Kamiya of PlatinumGames has reached out to assure Bayonetta (opens in new tab) fans that development on the third instalment is still underway.

Talking to Famitsu (opens in new tab), and translated by Gematsu (opens in new tab), Platinum's Hideki Kamiya might not have given away much, but he did say that whilst some of us might be "worried" that there's been very little information about the instalment since it was announced in 2017, "development is going very well".

"First off, many people are worried about Bayonetta 3 considering there hasn’t been any new information since its announcement, but verifications of new systems have been going great and development is going very well, so please wait with peace of mind," Kamiya said.

He also added that the tentatively-titled Project G.G. "has finally started moving", too, and said his motto for 2021 is to "do my best".

Bayonetta 3 is the third entry in the PlatinumGames’ Bayonetta series, which was first introduced to the public in 2009. Spearheaded by Hideki Kamiya, the game takes cues from his previous work like the Devil May Cry series. 

The witch queen Bayonetta is coming back once again after a near seven-year hiatus with Bayonetta 3, which was revealed by Nintendo back in 2017. Ever since there’s been little in the way of new information beyond a few interview snippets dwelling on the project. Regardless, we thought it’d be best to put all of that information together to help you get caught up in anticipation of its arrival – which can’t be too far away! – so here’s everything we know so far about Bayonetta 3.  

While we wait for Bayonetta 3, here's our pick of the best Nintendo Switch games (opens in new tab) to keep you going.
