game news PlatinumGames (Bayonetta): the studio announces not one, not two, but 9 games at once

You have to see it to believe it: the eminent Japanese studio PlatinumGames has just announced the development of nine completely new games, all from the old school, which will be available soon. Simply.

Shocking 10: A Well-Developed Neoclassical Arcade Series

We know that PlatinumGames is a damn productive studio, capable of the best (as with NieR Automata where the Bayonetta) or at least well (the recent fall of babylon It’s a good example). So from time to times, the Japanese firm allows itself some originalities, such as with sun cresta deliberately arcadey old-school shooter that came out last year.

Visibly pleased with this little old school game, PlatinumGames has just confirmed this morning the development of another nine applications, all along the same lines. With sun crestIThey form “Shocking 10”, a “Neo-Classic Arcade Series”, a line of titles inspired by the great classics of the 80s and 90s.

Most of them have not been revealed and we have to content ourselves with blurred images, albeit with interesting details about their nature: the next game planned is therefore to “galactically hit them”, then we will be entitled to “block destruction based combat”. can also quote “sci-fi football”to “rolling camera space shooter”to “super fast racing game”to “sexy explosive puzzle”to “ultimate top down action game”or even a “apocalyptic robot fighting game”.

Volume 5 was highlighted upstream : we still don’t have a specific title to sink our teeth into, but we have a first imagethat of a woman and a small creature in a flying saucer, all in a sparkling pastel pink. It will be a “spectacular action game”.

April 1 or real project?

In fact, it should be noted that all these games were released today, April 1. Could it be that PlatinumGames is just in the mood for jokes? We rightly recall that sun crest was announced on April 1 of last year, which everyone thought was a joke… before it hit stores soon after on PC, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. Following this logic, the Neo-Classic Arcade series would be well on its way. PlatinumGames is, in any case, capable, to a large extent.

Finally, a press conference was also broadcast, which is available below in Japanese (with English subtitles in the options). For once, the light tone and the staging give to smile.

No release date has been announced at the moment, but the studio promises us news soon. In any case, an official site has been put online, which you can access by clicking here.
