Kamiya jokes he wants to make Dante Vs. Bayonetta and Devil May Cry 0

PAX East 2020 PlatinumGames panel Hideki Kamiya Devil May Cry 0: The Episode of Sparda Dante Vs. Bayonetta Okami 2 Scalebound Viewtiful Joe 3

Today, PlatinumGames held a panel at PAX East 2020, talking about all the big developments that have occurred over the past month: The Wonderful 101: Remastered, Project G.G., and the new PlatinumGames Tokyo studio. Producer Atsushi Inaba and director Hideki Kamiya were present for the event. And among other things, Kamiya joked about all the video games he would still like to make, including a “Dante Vs. Bayonetta” and “Devil May Cry 0: The Episode of Sparda.”

The video clip below captures the moment. In full, he says, “Okami 2, Scalebound, Viewtiful Joe 3, Dante Vs. Bayonetta, Devil May Cry 0: The Episode of Sparda — I want to make everything! Please email Capcom.” Hideki Kamiya has previously claimed to be cooking up something with Ikumi Nakamura for an Okami sequel, so maybe these ideas aren’t completely pulled out of thin air. At the least, PlatinumGames and Capcom seem to be on healthy terms.

At present, PlatinumGames is officially working on Bayonetta 3, Babylon’s Fall, and Project G.G., though there are future plans to develop live-service games as well. I can’t envision “Dante Vs. Bayonetta” or “Devil May Cry 0” as a live-service game, but hey, Platinum has certainly surprised us with bigger things than that.

To see what else is going on at PAX East, take a look at the breathtaking Animal Crossing: New Horizons Nintendo area.
