PlatinumGames would like to bring original Bayonetta to Wii U


Whilst reasoning that game designers should always create sequels with the view that they can be enjoyed by those who haven’t played the original, PlatinumGames Hideki Kamiya has stated his desire to bring the original Bayonetta to Wii U.

Clarifying that he doesn’t have “much say over the matter” and that it is only his personal opinion, he feels that it would be a good way for newcomers to catch up with the critically-acclaimed release.

“I would love to make that happen, so that gamers unfamiliar with the first game get to play it,” Kamiya explained to IGN. “This is just my personal opinion, however. I have not much say over the matter.

“However, I think designers should always keep in mind that not everyone has played the previous title, even if this was released on the same platform. You have to make sure that even players who are unfamiliar with the franchise are able to keep up.”
