Platinum Games Director Would Rather do Viewtiful Joe 3 Before a Bayonetta Sequel

Despite the fact that Platinum Games director Hideki Kamiya has teased the possibility of a sequel to Bayonetta, it appears he has another property he like to tackle first, namely Viewtiful Joe.

The latest issue of Famitsu is reporting that if Kamiya had to return to a pre-existing franchise to make a sequel, he would like to return to the red-clad bullet dodging hero and make Viewtiful Joe 3. Those that are familiar with the franchise will recall it got its start on the GameCube several years ago before Capcom ported it to the PlayStation 2.

Bayonetta fans need not despair however, as Kamiya admits that he and his team at Platinum discuss the possibility of a proper followup quite often. Of course, they’ve just finished Anarchy Reigns and are working on Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, so they’ve still got quite a lot on their plate.

Which sequel would you rather see: Viewtiful Joe 3 or Bayonetta 2? Let us know in the comments below.
