PlatinumGames reveal this week

What next from the Bayonetta brain?

PlatinumGames, the creator of Bayonetta and MadWorld, will reveal its next project this week.

The announcement will be made on GameTrailers TV this week, according to host Geoff Keighley. The episode airs late on Thursday night in North America.

What creative director Hideki Kamiya will come up with next at PlatinumGames is unknown. Both MadWorld and Bayonetta were new IP, so the studio may continue conjuring original ideas.

Or perhaps the developer is keen to expand MadWorld to a core audience on PS3 and Xbox 360, following disappointing sales on Wii.

Whatever the project, PlatinumGames' pedigree (formerly Clover Studios of Okami, God Hand and Viewtiful Joe) is without doubt.
