Hideki Kamiya Dashes Hopes For Bayonetta 3 Gameplay Reveal Next Week

Published

Bayonetta 3

An enigmatic tweet from Bayonetta 3 director Hideki Kamiya earlier this week led to speculation that the game would be revealed next week, but Kamiya has shot down such hopes.

Several sources reported that Kamiya suggested that news on the title would become available “next week” in response to a fan query on Twitter. However, Kamiya more recently returned to the social media platform to clarify that the statement was part of a running joke.

Although the translation is imperfect, Kamiya wrote, “Whenever I see my ‘Next week ○ ○’ series is rumored every time, from the Earth, it will be a feeling of fraud.”

In this statement, Kamiya is alluding to an ongoing practice through which he responds to fan queries about upcoming projects with the same response of “next week.”

Bayonetta 3 was first revealed as a Switch exclusive at The Game Awards in 2017, though little news about the highly anticipated title have emerged in the years since. The last official word on the project is from a few months ago, with the update merely stating that the team continues to work on it.

In addition to Bayonetta 3, developer PlatinumGames is currently working on Astral Chain and Babylon’s Fall, as well as several other unannounced titles that it aims to self-publish.

Kalypso Media has announced new downloadable content for its rail management simulator title Railway Empire.

In the new ‘France’ DLC, players can build their railway in the wake of the exile of Emperor Napoleon III. The Third Republic has taken power following the collapse of the French monarchy, so players have the power to decide the industrial future of France.

Players can decide to help rebuild the country’s infrastructure (alongside the new “Eiffel Tower”), or to increase the strength of the country’s borders to prepare for military conflict.

The DLC is set between 1874–1890 and adds 10 train engines, over 12 tradeable goods, and 31 new cities, as well as new songs and characters. The map can be played in the Free Game and Sandbox modes.

Railway Empire: ‘France’ is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for US$12.99. The game has also received a new update (Update 1.9).

Check out the trailer for the new DLC below.

OnlySP’s Rhain Radford-Burns discussed the importance of Railway Empire in the wider genre of historical games, noting that “the developer grants an insight into the importance of such seemingly menial tasks.”
