      Were they in that bad of a shape? Nier Automata has already saved them from bankruptcy back in 2017, what the fuck? Did the management make a bet on if they can tank the studio intentionally?

          You know If platinum really wanted to court a multiplayer market, they should have made a successor to Anarchy Reigns. Or a remaster.

              Sega never advertised it when it released so it flew completely under the radar. Granted it has several issues but it was still a fun romp, especially the online PvP and PvE modes.

        They have successes every few years that saves them from bankruptcy like Astral Chain. Bayonetta was probably going to be one of those regardless, but the "controversy" around it will probably push it up to the level of Nier Automata.

            It's been the same story since they where clover studios

            People respect their talent though which is why their is always a publisher around to bail them out with a new contract.

            No one in Japan really wants to see platinum go. Konomi doesn't (rising). Square doesn't (nier). Nintendo doesn't (Bayonetta and Astral chain). They're to valued as sub contracters and would be an overall loss to their industry to lose.

            Cave shooters sell better than ever now. To man companies where allowed to bankrupt in the transition to HD and I think Japan will try to shelter the few talented studios they have left

            Sony just fucking killed Japan studio. What a loss 🙁

            Hopefully platinum can't get into to much trouble with their new handler looking over their shoulder

          Keep dreaming, that game was on multiple platforms, dick rided by average consumers and otaku alike, got good scroes across the board, the nonstop shilling of Taro finally getting a game with good gameplay, main character that is STILL getting drawn to this day.

            This, Automata was more or less a miracle that Bayo 3 just doesn't have resources to reproduce. It took Yosuke Saito, threatening to leave SE if Yoko Taro isn't given another chance. They had Akihiko Yoshida as the character designer, making a 10/10 coombait gothic e-boita maid character, making her known to mainstream, Keiichi Okabe's music, Platinum's gameplay and Taro's writing to produce a game on the budged worth little more than a barrel of sake. Finally, the game had a really strong word of mouth from the previous fans and it was a multiplatform release.

            The whole game exists because several stars happened to be perfectly alligned at a particular moment and it created a perfect storm.

                Suda51 is like taro be can write but can't do game play.

            Match made in heaven they complement each other very well

            Platinum needs a new writing department or to just be banned from making cutscenes in most of their games. Bayo is better on a 2nd play through once you can skip the scenes

            Bayonetta has way to many cut scenes. All three of them. Cutscenes should only be allowed at the end of the level and shouldn't be longer than a minute

              watch the opening cutscene in Bayo 3 and try to understand how it might scare away a normie. the way Bayo dances, acts and carries herself can dissuade alot of people from playing. me personally id probably switch to porn before letting my family or friends catch me playing the game. which makes the "censored" setting even more stupid because this isnt a game youd wanna play around anyone else regardless. meanwhile Nier does have wierd moments but the worst you gotta worry about is the fanservice designs especially from 2B but with how mainstream anime is her design can easily be shrugged off by most younger viewers

                Nier is only kept up for the porn design of the main char. Anyone walking in on either is going to assume you're playing some funny jap anime game or to fap to the main char.

      Does anybody actually know if Platinum gets any cut from Automata's sales? It sold very well and the game has insanely strong legs for sure, but if Platinum got a lump sum, then all the profits simply go to SE. Though I doubt that they'd be so retarded not to negotiate a cut from actual sales.

        There is no absolutely reason for an android in a sci-fi dystopia to be wearing a e-boita minidress with a cleavage window, thigh-hi stockings and high heels, so get the fuck over yourself in thinking that Automata is somehow more "high art" or normie-friendly than Bayonetta. Your pretentiousness in pretending that Automata isn't mostly famous for 2B's ass is more offensive than anything about Bayonetta, because at least Bayonetta doesn't pretend.

    You guys should probably wait for actual numbers. P5R is an old full priced port. These are all relative rankings. It took Bayo 2 four years to sell just 1 million on Switch despite reviewing higher and being $10 cheaper.

    That could be only a few thousand digital sales, that's really not looking good, I can't imagine P5 on Switch sold more than 50k units in it's launch week in Japan, there is really no demand for the game, especially with all the cuts they have to make to get it on the Switch.

    I got all this when I picked up my copy on Friday. It was the standard edition I ordered to. The collectors edition is a ripoff all it comes with is an art book

    Has anyone unlocked/beaten Rodin? He seems insanely hard this time around
    I assume they account for demons being able to enable some really broken combos, but I haven't remotely mastered them and having them out for any length of time is a giant risk against hm

      I played the second game recently and didn't even think it was fun enough to hunt down all the gold LPs

      I don't think the sequels shoulda had witch time the first game is about teaching you not to use it.

      Instead we got schizo witch time where how long you get constantly varies. And then press L to awesome. wow

    Funny that it's the most jankiest and unpolished of the trilogy and ends up selling the best.

    The game is a 7 at best. It's ugly, barren, and missing detail. The whole story with Helena Taylor seems like it was all set up to make this an underdog triumph story of a game. It's not that good and the environments look like monster hunter rise level of dog shit. They should cut Helena a check because I never would have checked this out if not for the meme story about her paycheck.

      Honestly this. I swear to fucking god if her story is true they changed the ending of this game to make her die on purpose. That or it was one huge marketing stunt since this is the end

        You are legitimately insane if you think this scandal possibly could be a viral marketing campaign or never worked a corporate job. It's a reputation risk that no company can ever allow.

      Agree with all of this except the monster hunter rise criticism. Rise is literally one of the best looking monster hunter games imo and far better looking than bayo3. It looks like shit on switch but so does almost every single game that isn't first party. Rise genuinely looks better than world on pc.

    should be since the switch audience is massive and bayo3 is the only game in town right now

    and the game is pretty neat

      Is this game actually good? I got it on steam for free one day and never played it.

        It's a decent wild west shooter with a fun premise. MC is telling a story and he might misremember stuff and then the stages changes accordingly to his story. I barely play FPS games and I finished the game twice just to see both endings.
        There's some skill system that you can customize to make some fun broken gameplay, like making the bullet time skill basically infinite so you can just slow down time forever.
        Short and fun, if you have some time to spare, go give it a shot.
