What's the 4 about then? 4 games in development? 101 port, Bayonetta 3 and the 2 new self published IPs?

So it looks like it's 4 different announcements. All I've wanted all these years is a Vanquish sequel. Pls Platinum.

If you like the video you'll probably like the game to be fair.

Platinum have probably bought the IP back off Nintendo. Or will do if they get support.


Nintendo have agreed to it. I doubt Nintendo would sell them the IP.

Clever idea by Nintendo, let a remaster of this come to all platforms to gain exposure and if it sells really well then green light a Switch exclusive sequel.

EDIT: Currently sitting at over £740k, PC and PS4 version stretch goals have been reached. Stretch goals from now looks to be additional DLC content (which will be free to backers)

Given it's launch date of April, they must have already started on this before going down the route of Kickstarter.

Must be more or less finished, or close at least.

It’s hit $1m and 15k backers.

I'll likely wait on the Steam version. The propect of playing this with locked 60fps and 1080p is too enticing to me.

It’s basically a glorified pre-order campaign, the money seems to be more for assisting with the publishing and additional content they will release. They obviously love this IP enough to go through all this, I hope it pays off for them this time.

It's definitely generated some buzz about the release.

Be really good for them if they manage to turn around a failed IP like this. They obviously have faith in it.

Backed. Never played the original but it looks quality so looking forward to giving it a go on Switch.

They put a ton of work, imagination and humour into it. One of my favourite tiny things about it is that they created individual super heroes that make up the team you control. They each have a theme, for example one of the heroes is called Wonder Toilet. He's a super hero dressed like a toilet.

Also, one of the best soundtracks in video games.
