Platinum has established a new studio in Tokyo, which is considered the third of the Platinum 4 announcements.

The fourth announcement in the Platinum 4 campaign has a date!

Mark your calendars for...April 1st?!

...

Calling it now, there will be two "announcements." One will be an obviously fake one, causing us to be all "pffft, yeah right." And then, there'll be the real announcement.

Question is...what would be real and what would be fake?

So far, we have these scenarios:

  • Gameplay (and release date?) for Bayonetta 3.
  • Viewtiful Joe 3 announcement.
  • Ōkami 2 announcement.
  • Bayonetta vs. Devil May Cry
  • Drakengard 4 and/or NieR 3

And just for the heck of it, let me brainstorm other crazy scenarios because April Fools is on the table:

  • Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance remaster announced. (Won't happen because Konami is Konami and Konami is the worst.)
  • Scalebound revived as something way less grounded than the initial version for Xbox Series X. (Also won't happen since Microsoft is kinda prickly about anime.)
  • A Platinum-based Sonic game. (I don't care how Platinum would do a Sonic game, I just thought since Platinum specialized at high-octane gameplay and Sonic IS the epitome of speed, Platinum will figure out SOMETHING.)
  • A new Jet Set Radio game. (Also won't happen because I don't know.)

[up]Kamiya is unblocking everyone he's ever blocked on Twitter and swearing off the use of the function.

[up][up]Not that I know of, though I'd admit I don't pay close attention to the man so that might have even happened.

[up][up] ...Literally forgot Platinum did a DS game.

[up] I can't speak for myself, but I know one of my favorite YouTubers Pan-Pizza got blocked by Kamiya-sensei for asking him to do a remaster of Anarchy Reigns...in English. (Kamiya-sensei apparently doesn't like English tweets asking him for stuff.)

@Target Master Joe: Remember that April Fools day in Japan is actually the ending of their 4th quarter of their fiscal year there, so while there are joke announcements, most of them are actually real.

The unblocking is due to the Wonderful 101 kickstarter. I thought it was just for everyone who made the pledges that included Kamiya blocking them.

Twitter is largely for idiots and/or masochists anyway.

The youtube description is tagged as #April Fools #April Fools' Day #Gotcha so for now, take this as an April Fools thing.

lmao at using the final announcement for this though

[up] HA! Joke's on them, because I have no nostalgia for Terra Cresta, so I have no problem believing this to be a trick! Let the record show that I was skeptical the second I read that they had something big to announce on April 1st!

For context, Terra Cresta was a series of vertical shoot-em-up arcade games from the 80's where your ship could turn into an invincible phoenix...somehow.

One could easily tell this is bogus since arcade cabinets are, in places besides Japan, crazy niche, so selling a brand new arcade cabinet at $17,000 minus tax sounds like a tall order what with the average cabinet ranging between $2,799 to $4,299.

Real talk though, if this winds up being legit in a year or two tops, (which I don't see happening so I wouldn't hold my breath), I could see Sol Cresta being made as a digital release with HD graphics and an asking price of $20 to $30. (Though pretty sneaky of them plugging in a release date for The Wonderful 101 Remastered at the very end...)
