Platinum Games is teasing fans about the future of the Bayonetta series once again. This time it’s in the form of a tweet from the Japanese Platinum Games account that depicts a split image featuring Bayonetta 1 on top and Bayonetta 2 on the bottom.

The top half of the image heavily uses the color blue and the bottom uses red. See image below:

Speculation is that this is foreshadowing the release of the first two games in the series on the Nintendo Switch. Fans have already began to point out that the colors used in the image are similar to the red & blue joy-cons that came with one version of the Nintendo Switch.

To further tease fans, the studio has “liked” a bunch tweets in which people have pointed the color resemblance out. It’s worth noting that this tease is not likely for the Bayonetta 3 as the image shows the copyrights for the first two games.

Just recently, Nintendo of America president, Reggie Fils-Aimé, stated in an interview that players should expect more enhanced versions of Wii U titles to make their way over to the Nintendo Switch platform.

Pair this with the fact that Bayonetta 2 was released exclusively on the Wii U and it seems inevitable that the series will become available to Switch players.

Currently sitting at a 91 on MetaCritic, Bayonetta 2 is just another example of a underplayed Wii U game that deserves a bigger platform. Are you excited at the potential for a re-release?
