After almost 4 years of the original announcement of Bayonetta 3 And since then not seeing anything of the game, Nintendo finally presented the first gameplay trailer of the title in its last Nintendo Direct. Of course, seeing Bayonetta again made many fans of the series on other consoles wonder again if the new game will come to PlayStation or Xbox. Surprisingly, Hideki Kamiya, PlatinumGames creative, mentioned that there is a possibility … practically nil.
Kamiya, one of PlatinumGames’ top creative minds, constantly interacts with his followers on Twitter. On the occasion of the new trailer for Bayonetta 3, many fans have questioned him about the possibility of the title reaching other platforms, such as Xbox or PlayStation.
The creative made it clear that Bayonetta 3, like Bayonetta 2, is funded by Nintendo, so PlatinumGames is only responsible for development and Nintendo for any decision on the product.
Thus, the creative invited fans to express to Nintendo their wishes to see Bayonetta 3 on other consoles: “If Nintendo asks us to adapt the game to PS5, we could do it.”

Kamiya says that Bayonetta could come to PlayStation and Xbox
That said, Kamiya made it clear that the chances of Bayonetta 3 reaches PlayStation and Xbox consoles are not void, but Nintendo should only give the order. However, Kamiya showed in a later message that he was playing with the hope of the fans, as he explained that with the same logic Super Mario and The Legend of Zelda they could reach other consoles.
“So good luck sending enthusiastic requests to Nintendo and trying to make that happen … If I were you, I’d better buy myself a Switch,” Kamiya commented.
In case you missed it: many fans were not happy with the graphics of Bayonetta 3.
So is there a possibility?
Kamiya’s answer surely disappointed many and could be considered a troll. But calm, just as it says, there is a possibility.
Perhaps Kamiya using the example of Super Mario and The Legend of Zelda went to the extreme. But we invite you to think about The Wonderful 101. This title debuted on Wii U as an exclusive; in fact it is an IP registered by Nintendo. However, in 2020 it stopped being exclusive and today it is available in the form of a remastering on PlayStation consoles and even on PC.
Nintendo not only gave PlatinumGames the green light to do this, but supported it to bring the game to other consoles, something the studio welcomed.
In addition, we remind you that Bayonetta it is a SEGA IP, so it would be more difficult to get the rights to distribute Bayonetta on other consoles, like The Wonderful 101 Remastered, although PlatinumGames would love it. That said, don’t get excited about this tiny possibility.
The chances of Beyo 2 and Beyo 3 being ported to PS5 and XBOX aren’t zero … Nintendo just has to decide …
By the same theory, the possibility that Mario and Zelda can play on PS5 etc. is not zero …
Please do your best and continue to send enthusiastic requests to Nintendo …
By the way, I would buy hard quickly …
