Last week's Nintendo Direct saw PlatinumGames unveil a new trailer for Bayonetta 3, and since then, executive director Hideki Kamiya has told Xbox and PlayStation fans to "tell Nintendo" if they want the game on other platforms.
As highlighted and translated by Kotaku, Kamiya mentioned that the chances of an Xbox or PlayStation release "aren't zero", but then again, the chances of Mario and Zelda coming to PS5 aren't necessarily "zero" either.
“We are developing Bayonetta 3, as we did Bayonetta 2, with money we received from Nintendo. Since we’re ‘only developing,’ Nintendo has total say regarding the product.”
“It seems the probability of Bayonetta 2 and Bayonetta 3 getting ported to the PS4 and Xbox isn’t zero. To be honest, the probability of most things isn’t necessarily zero! Just because it’s possible, however, that doesn’t mean it will happen. So please keep working hard at sending your passionate requests to Nintendo."
This isn't the first time we've heard something like this from PlatinumGames, as the studio previously told fans of cancelled Xbox exclusive Scalebound to write a letter to Xbox boss Phil Spencer if they wanted to see the game return.
Speaking of Scalebound, Bayonetta 3's Yusuke Miyata was actually the lead designer on that game, and it's been suggested that Bayonetta 3 might even feature some Scalebound influences in its mechanics.
We're not holding out any hope for Bayonetta 3 on Xbox, but as Kamiya says, the chances aren't zero!
