Platinum Games designer would love to see original Bayonetta on Wii U

Wonderful 101 sequel is also on the cards

Platinum Games designer Hideki Kamiya has expressed his desire for a sequel to The Wonderful 101, as well as a Wii U port of the original Bayonetta.

When asked during an interview with IGN if Kamiya would ever make a sequel to The Wonderful 101, he said given the chance he'd love to make one, but he really has "no idea at this point."


Kamiya also expressed interest in another project involving Bayonetta.

Bayonetta 2 is set for release exclusively on the Wii U next year, but Kamiya would love to see the original ported to the console. "I would love to make that happen, so that gamers unfamiliar with the first game get to play it. This is just my personal opinion, however. I have not much say over the matter."

During the interview Kamiya also admitted that he'd like to see Platinum Games work more closely with Nintendo, and have the studio become a second-party Nintendo developer.

The Wonderful 101 launched last week, and in our review we said: "Lacks the mesmerising fluidity of Platinum's other work, but The Wonderful 101 puts on a real show for the eyes all the same. Hack and slash connoisseurs with both the patience to learn a new way to play and a thirst for high-score chasing will be well-rewarded for their investment."

Earlier this month Bayonetta 2 director Yusuke Hashimoto explained that Nintendo's standards for quality provided priceless feedback.

The Bayonetta 2 launch trailer was revealed at E3 2013.
