Bayonetta dev teases new game

It's the first countdown clock of 2010

Japanese Bayonetta developer Platinum Games has wound up work on its sexy-action-slasher and is already teasing a new game. Any ideas?

So far the studio, headed up by the likes of Resident Evil mastermind Shinji Mikami, has got MadWorld and Bayonetta under its belt. But what's next? Anyone? Beuler?

To be perfectly honest we don't have a clue. It could be a sequel. It could be a new IP. But one thing we do know is that the developer is going to announce something sooner rather than later.

The first countdown (remember they were all the rage in 2009) of 2010 is running right now (thanks Kotaku).

Not familiar with Bayonetta? Let PSM's review fill you in: "Before you write off Bayonetta as a straight Devil May Cry clone, a weird Japanese hack'n'slash, or another sad attempt by a game to be sexy - STOP.

"Although it has elements of all these things, Bayonetta rises above such simple classification by being the boldest, most explosive and downright unashamed game we've played for years. It isn't a whacky genre game - it actually defines the genre it sits in."
