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.

ARMA 3 ‘Contact’ Campaign Will Take Around Six Hours to Complete

ARMA 3

ARMA 3‘s new spin-off expansion will receive a sizable campaign, which is expected to take between four and six hours to complete.

Joris-Jan van ‘t Land, project lead of ‘Contact‘, provided some fresh details regarding the campaign length in an exclusive interview with OnlySP. He confirmed that the campaign will take around four to six hours to complete depending on player ability:

“The length is always hard to specify, because it, of course, depends on each individual player, and how much they explore the terrain beyond the core objectives. We’d estimate normal play sessions lasting between 4 and 6 hours.” He continued, “After that, there’s, of course, a cool box of new toys to tinker with, including the rest of the new Livonia terrain. We also hope community creators get inspired to build their own alien scenarios.”

van ‘t Land also revealed that players will take on the role of a “NATO drone operator” undergoing military training exercises in Livonia. During one of these seemingly routine training exercises, humanity encounters an alien species coming face-to-face with strange technology.

“A big part of the campaign is about uncovering its mystery and exploring what is going on, so we’ll leave most details for players to discover for themselves.” He added, “You will assume the role of a NATO drone operator, deployed to Livonia for military training exercises. Eventually, our alien visitors arrive at the Area of Operations, and from there on out you’re part of an improvised reconnaissance operation to investigate what’s going on.”

ARMA 3 ‘Contact’ is set to release on 25 July 2019 for PC. Our full interview with Bohemia Interactive about the expansion will be available in the coming days.
