This is good news but can they bring Bayonetta back as a multi platform ?

NIntendo is the wrong system to sell mature games. Let alone having it being an exclusive title....

Kinda difficult to accomplish that given that it was Nintendo who funded Bayonetta 2 (and I would imagine Bayonetta 3 as well).

If Platinum Games is really going to self-publish titles in the future, I'm hoping they go ahead with Vanquish 2

Pretty sure Nintendo is now part-owner of that IP.

It's the first thing that popped into my mind when I learned of this. To this day, it's still my favorite single player shooter. The final boss on god hard difficulty, now that's a real boss fight!

YES.

Vanquish is so good! I'm still chasing 100% Achievements / Trophies because the challenge missions are insane (for comparison's sake I have 100% Achievements / Trophies for Ninja Gaiden II and Ninja Gaiden Σ2).

It's a shame that a lot of people played Vanquish the same way they would play shooters like Gears of War where they'd just hide behind cover and shoot --- rinse and repeat ad nauseam. While the story is nonsensical, when you utilize all the mechanics available to you it truly plays like no other shooter.. such an adrenaline rush!

That's good. As much as I praise Nintendo for rescuing bayo 2, its befter for everyone if games a re multi platform.

Nintendo does not own the IP, SEGA does, Nintendo only owns 2 and probably 3.

that's why you can get Bayonetta on PC but not 2 or 3 ??

Bayonetta's PC Port is Awesome - Even on Old PCs!

Bayonetta (platinum games) and Fatal Frame (tecmo) were multi platform series -- it would be nice if they can return to being a multi platform.
