PlatinumGames’ designer Hideki Kamiya made a not so subtle, but extremely likely tongue-in-cheek threat at Nintendo this morning ahead of the Nintendo Direct later tonight.
His demands are clear: tonight “Ninty” had better announce the Virtual Console for the Switch and unveil a new Joy-Con with the traditional cross shape d-pad. If these demands are not met, Platinum Games might “lose motivation” for developing Bayonetta 3. Kamiya, is extremely active Twitter and is well known for being frank and fun with his followers.
We’ll see what Nintendo has in store later today when the direct goes live at 5 p.m. ET. In the meantime, check out our predictions for tonight’s event.
