Watch Hideki Kamiya Talkin' Bayonetta

Developer hypes own game via power of the Internet! Film at 11!

Japanese developers have embraced the utility of the Internet with varying degrees of speed, and in a relative sense, I have to say the former CapcomClover Studio people who went on to form PlatinumGames are on the bleeding edge of reaching out to their audience over this wonderful network of tubes we have here. They've got a serious, in-depth blog going with lots of behind-the-scenes looks at the development of games like MadWorld, Infinite Space, and Bayonetta.


Regarding the latter, check out the latest installment of Platinum's own PGTV video series, in which director Hideki Kamiya talks at great length about "infinite climax action" game starring everyone's favorite eponymous witchy-librarian-with-guns-strapped-to-her-feet.

  


This is the kind of behind-the-scenes information you don't find just anywhere. Platinum has really thrown open the kimono here; I'll just let this shot from a piece on Bayonetta's modeling and animation do the rest of the talking.

Hrmm, looking good so far. Character modeling that is.

I just love how Bayonetta serves so many common fetishes.

Posted by dQuarters

These dudes are obviously having a good time. Obviously getting no sleep as well.

Still looks like Sarah Palin.

Edit:  I've rethought my anti-Bayonetta life.  After watching this candid " trailer 'splaining " session, I'm looking forward to this game.  Looks like a breath of fresh air to that God of War /Devil May Cry genre.

That is in fact, a butt.

Fine polygonal ass there

@ Tarsier. Shut up and get your f*ck!ng-dumb posts out of here!

This is pretty awesome news, since I just saw that "screenshot" I immediately recognized the guy who did write the whole article. I mean Brad. :P

When you have a female character taking up the main role, that's simply a great thing, especially talking about Bayonetta. She's so feminine, attractive, yet dangerous and very well designed with personality.

Bayonetta is truly an eye-catching character, and I look forward to looking at her throughout the action. I can't wait to play with Bayonetta!

Overall, this game looks better than any other Devil May Cry game, much better, I'd say.

This video would have been way better without the douche sitting next to Hideki. I wanted to screen punch him in the teeth the entire time.

Posted by Cloneslayer

This game looks like DMC on crack with a hot female lead, so that means I'll love it.

@Tarsier you wouldn't know an attractive girl if one came up and blew your head off with shotguns attached to her high heels.


Posted by JCGamer

I hope this game is good.  I got bored with Devil May Cry 4 when you changed to Dante.

Posted by dagas

She is kind of over-sexy but I think that's the point. She is supposed to look like some fetish porn star. I just hope it's not just all style and no content.

Posted by Ozeki

Games looks good.

Edited by Linkyshinks

It all sounds awesome, cannot wait to see gameplay footage from E3.

Posted by Count_Elmdor

Yeah, that dude is so far up Kamiya's ass it's a wonder he can see the video.  He speaks Japanese like a woman, too.

Posted by lantus

That, my friend, is a glorious ass.

That is all.

Posted by Nick

I hate the look of the girl in this game, I don't know why, it just annoys me.

Posted by MasterChief360

Nice game, it does have potential, especially Bayonetta and her......

Posted by Reverseface

Bayonetta is one of those chicks with a hot body not so hot face so just put a paper bag on her head. AND GO BUCK WILD.

Posted by spilledmilkfactory

i luvz me some ass. but unfortunately for bayonetta, that's what i have the internet for.

Posted by Lind_L_Taylor

A polygonal ass won't make me pay $60 for this game.  It would be better to waste it at titty bars instead.

I hope the game is good but like most of these Japanese action games, it might be frustratingly difficult to get past some areas.

Edited by Subject2Change
Not gonna drop 60 bucks on this but i'll wait for a price drop or something. Still need to play the DMC games as well...
Posted by Media_Master

this game is gonna sell

Posted by NathHaw

Is that a Galaga shirt?  I think so.

Edited by PenguinDust

That was fascinating.  I was riveted to the screen during the entire video.  It was a real treat to have Hideki Kamiya detail the process of making a trailer and designing a character.  There were some nice reveals in there, too.  I am getting more excited by this game the more I see it. 

I don't know why some people are saying she's ugly. Bayonetta is a "Meganekko" or "Glasses Girl", which is its own fetish.

First climax indeed

Edited by ZombiePie

He talks about his game as if it's an exact science...it just seems like overkill to me. I'm really not into games like this so I guess his explanation wasn't really intended for me, but I really don't care about all this hidden stuff in the trailer...as long as it works in the game I'm fine, you don't need to explain things to me as if you're publishing a dissertation! Your game can look great and have all this hidden depth to it, but if it isn't fun then I don't care, so I guess I'll just have to wait until a demo or something gets released.
