Platinum Games, creators of Bayonetta, Vanquish or NieR: Automata, have a reputation for creating great action games with a very personal dynamic. It is not strange that, after taking the initiative to develop and self-publish their games, there is an expectation to see what they are able to put on the table. What if it was a battle royale?
” It’s a very interesting genre ” says Atsushi Inaba, president of the company, in an interview with Video Games Chronicle. & Quot; Frankly, I think it would be interesting to see what we could do with it ” However, Platinum does not seem to be embarking on a project linked to battle royale, at least for now.
” We would not do anything that only had shots. With Apex Legends, the quality bar is so high that we would not go in that direction. Trying to get something of our own taste in that genre could be very interesting. & Quot; Definitely there are many interesting things for Inaba, although it is likely that we have to wait for while before Platinum Games considers the possibility of trying their luck with the battle royale.
For now, the company works in titles like Bayonetta 3, Babylon’s Fall or Astral Chain, a game where we take control of a character and a beast at the same time.
