Sega and Platinum Games planning additional titles
Shortly after its formation, Platinum Games signed a four-game agreement with Japanese mega-publisher Sega, resulting in Mad World, Infinite Space, Bayonetta and the upcoming shooter, Vanquish. With the last game essentially out the door, many gamers wondered what Platinum Games would do next.
Apparently, Platinum Games will continue to work with Sega. Speaking at Tokyo Game Show, the studio's producer and executive director Atsushi Inaba said the "relationship between Sega and Platinum games does not end with Vanquish."
While no specifics were given, Platinum Games lead Hideki Kamiya has been rather vocal about a doing a sequel to Bayonetta. When fans inquired about Bayonetta 2, Kamiya coyly responded, "shell be back if you believe so."
Vanquish, Platinum's latest title, is a fast-paced shooter directed Shinji Mikami. The game is due out in October for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
