Outspoken Platinum Games designer Hideki Kamiya made it clear Bayonetta 2
and The Wonderful 101
are staying Wii U-exclusive unless Nintendo says otherwise. Posting on Twitter
, the Bayonetta
director said that the games will be published on PS3 or Xbox 360 only if Nintendo says they will, and implored fans to stop asking Platinum Games about it.
"We are a developer. Nintendo are the ones kind enough to fund and publish our The Wonderful 101
and Bayonetta 2
projects," said Kayima, according to a translation he retweeted later. "So if Nintendo says, 'We are publishing Bayonetta 2
on PS3/360,' then it will happen. So please go ask them, not us."
The news follows a week which saw the formerly Wii U-exclusive Rayman Legends delayed
until September for a multiplatform release on PS3 and Xbox 360 as well, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge
being ported back
from Wii U to the two rival consoles. Still more surprising than either piece of news was the announcement
last year that Bayonetta 2
is coming to Wii U, and not, like its predecessor, PS3 and Xbox 360.
