One of the big absentees of yesterday’s Nintendo Direct for E3 2021 was without a doubt Bayonetta 3, third chapter of the action series born several years now.
The game was announced in 2017 and, after some timid confirmations, the title seems to have literally disappeared from radar (although in any case an excellent compilation for Switch has been proposed for the first two chapters of the franchise).
While not appearing at the event, the director of Bayonetta 3 Hideki Kamiya has decided once again not to send them to say, using harsh tones towards those who in these hours are speculating on why the game has disappeared again.
Below, Kamiya’s words published on Twitter (via Kotaku):
I understand why people say ‘Hurry up and release information’ or ‘Show us something’. Rash comments like ‘Has development stopped?’ or ‘I guess it’s been postponed’, etc. They are none other than annoying waste of time.
Kamiya then responded in a manner rather annoyed to the tweets of those who suggested that development had stopped, calling those users “Fucking idiots”.
As reported on Hachima Kikou, another user on Twitter pointed out that a number of well-known PlatinumGames titles, namely Scalebound e Granblue Fantasy: Relink, have been canceled and therefore nothing excludes that a third “dead” may appear in the future.
In any case, Kamiya replied that the development of those titles has nothing to do with the state of health of Bayonetta 3 nor with some comments defined as “reckless” by the Japanese developer.
According to the latest information released, development is progressing well, although skipping an important event like E3 was certainly a little encouraging sign, although these concerns seem to be completely unjustified.
We also remember yesterday evening the Big N has in any case announced a new 2D chapter of the saga Metroid, due out in October this year.
But that’s not all: the sequel to Zelda: Breath of the Wild has returned to show itself in all its glory, with a new trailer full of unreleased sequences taken from the game.
Finally, again during the Direct, even a Japanese-based survival horror much loved by the public was confirmed back on the Nintendo hybrid platform.
