The good folks at VGC recently spoke with the leadership development team at Platinum Games about the better things to come with Nintendo after hiring one of the Plumber’s House bosses.
We recently posted gameplay of their recently released port by Virtuos Games: NieR:Automata The End of YoRHa Edition on the Nintendo Switch .
PlatinumGames president and CEO, Atsushi Inaba, said seems to be suggesting at a relationship that could potentially lead to either a full or partial ownership by the Plumber House. The tone fo Inaba-san’s remarks is an interesting shift from that of a few years ago when it was PlatinumGames’ wish to become a fully independent publisher. With this recent interaction that plan may abandoned in the future.
PlatinumGames while a media darling is many respects has found its games don’t always land with title like Transformers:Devastation and more recently Babylon’s Fall which has retired its service. With the hiring of Yamane back in July of this year it was celebrated as a rebirth with the company even tweeting “PlatinumGames Reborn.”
Bayonetta 3 launches on Nintendo Switch on 28th October.
