Bayonetta game director Yusuke Hashimoto has promised to share "new information" related to the acclaimed beat-'em-up this week.
Could this be a sequel?
"Good morning," tweeted Hashimoto, cheerily (via andriasang). "It looks like we'll be able to share new information related to Bayonetta this week. Look forward to it."
SEGA offered a flat "no comment" to Eurogamer when approached earlier.
Supporting the sequel argument are comments made by SEGA West boss Mike Hayes in March this year, who said the publisher could "sequel-ise" Bayonetta.
The andriasang report added that Hashimoto has apparently expressed interest in developing a spin-off game set in the Bayonetta world.
Bayonetta was released in October 2009 in Japan, and in January in the West. Eurogamer bloody loved it.
