Itagaki Calls Bayonetta Creator an Idiot


Despite the hardships of creating a new studio after being fired from his old one, Tomonobu Itagaki has apparently bounced back and is more than ready to talk smack about his fellow developers. And one person in particular, Hideki Kamiya, is under Itagaki’s scrutiny.

“If I made a similar game as a game I made in the company I quit, people would say, ‘What an idiot, can’t he make anything else?’ Well, that is more or less the opinion I have for, uh, that Bayo-something game.”

Kamiya is the world-renowned creator of Devil May Cry and upcoming action title Bayonetta. And Bayonetta’s character design didn’t go over too kindly with Itagaki either during his E3 interview with 1UP.

“Covered in hair, is she? I dunno, Mr. Kamiya must have a lot going through his head. Well, in any case, I would first recommend laser eye surgery. I’m sure he’s not that strapped for cash, right?”
