Bayonetta Director Hideki Kamiya Wanted to Make Nine Games

Bayonetta director Hideki Kamiya originally had plans to make nine games in the acclaimed action franchise. However, since he parted ways with Platinum Games back in September, he’s now taking plans for at least five of those games “to the grave.” Kamiya also suggested that it’s a very bad idea for him to work with other renowned Japanese developers such as Hideo Kojima.

Answering some fan queries about the Bayonetta series in a recent video posted to his YouTube channel, Kamiya opened up about wanting to make a lot more projects in the franchise. “As I explained before, I worked on Bayonetta 1, 2, 3, and Origins,” said Kamiya in response to a fan asking about the franchise. “I’ve talked about this in various interviews, that the Bayonetta series would consist of a total of nine episodes.”

Kamiya added that his plans for future Bayonetta games will not see the light of day but believes that the IP, which isn’t owned by him, will keep going elsewhere:

“I wanted to grow the franchise as the Bayonetta ‘Saga,’ but it seems like I may have to take the full saga to the grave with me. It’s a shame. I don’t own the Bayonetta IP, but I suppose those who do will probably keep it going.”

Later in the video, Kamiya is asked if he’d ever consider teaming up with other Japanese game creators such as Hideo Kojima or Yoko Taro. “It doesn’t work like in Dragon Ball, where Goku fuses with other characters,” said Kamiya, adding that it would be a “disaster” if that were to happen. “Two people with completely different personalities and ideas would clash. There’s no way you’d get a good game from that.”

He makes a good point. When more than one creative vision is involved in a project, it might cause unnecessary conflicts.

In November 2022, Hideki Kamiya confirmed that Bayonetta 4 will happen. However, since he’s no longer with Platinum Games, the fourth entry might move forward without him.

    Hi Marco,

    Which TV would you choose between the Hisense 65U7K and the 65U8H at the same price.

    It will not be used for gaming, mainly streaming/TV.

    Thank you,

      Sorry for the delayed reply. The U8H and U7K are very similar due to them both using IPS panels. So it is a tough one. The U8H does get brighter than the U7K but the unit doesn’t handle its blooming as well as the U7K due to the panel. I would still go for the U8H just for the extra brightness.
