Sega Pres boasts Bayonetta is best he’s seen


When speaking to GameSpot in a recent interview Simon Jeffery, the President of Sega America has revealed that the Platinum Games developed Bayonetta is some of the best stuff he has seen on next-gen machines.

Platinum Games is made up of many key staff from the old Capcom funded Clover Studios, with Shinji Mikami, Atsushi Inaba and Hideki Kamiya all part of the burgeoning studio. They are also currently developing three other games for Sega as part of a recently announced deal.

These guys are platform-agnostic. Bayonetta’s on the next-gen platforms, Madworld’s on the Wii… One of the things we really like about them is they’re building teams and expertise around specific platforms. Instead of saying, “Today you’re doing it on this, and tomorrow you’re doing it on that,” they’re really trying to build up and leverage expertise. The stuff they’re building on Bayonetta is the best stuff I’ve seen on next-gen. It’s absolutely outstanding,” he comments.

Bayonetta is currently set for release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but has no release date as of yet. The game will be directed by Hideki Kamiya, creator of the Devil May Cry series.
