October 29th, 2019 was the 10th anniversary of the release of Bayonetta in Japan, and to celebrate we decided to mark the coming year as “Bayonetta: Year Ten.”
The #Bayonetta10th Twitter and Instagram campaign that we held from October 29th until November 19th of this year was just the beginning of our plans to share the joy with all of you! We received over 2,000 amazing submissions, and you can check out all of the contest winners here.
As game developers, we’re all thrilled that games released a decade ago still get so much love, and we have a special message from our own Hideki Kamiya to all of the fans!
We’ll continue to update this page with more Bayonetta 10th anniversary info as it comes, so be sure to check back!
Ten Years of Bayonetta! A Message from Hideki Kamiya
Sincerest thanks to all of you who’ve supported Bayonetta over the last ten years. Today is a momentous occasion for me, and it’s all because of your tremendous love.
Bayonetta was my very first title here at PlatinumGames, and I went into it with a lofty goal – to make the best action game I possibly could. I poured my all into the game with that feeling firmly in mind.
Now, ten years later, as I look back on those development days, I see peaks and valleys, good times and bad. But our staff pulled together through it all and, working as one, I think we managed to pull off something truly miraculous.
To everyone who’s been involved with the Bayonetta series, and to all of the Bayonetta fans who’ve helped us get here: Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I hope you’ll follow Bayonetta’s adventures, and continue to love and support her for years to come.Hideki Kamiya
