Suprised no one's mentioned this yet, but Platinum Games are working on a new title called Max Anarchy.
Little is known about it so far, except that it'll be a combat game with both single and multiplayer modes...
oh, and it stars Jack from Madworld. You know, the guy with a chainsaw for a hand who likes to stick roadsigns into people's heads?
Is this a follow up to Madworld? Possibly, the teaser trailer features similar music as the awesome soundtrack to Madworld.
I know everyone's talking about Jack being back, but that trailer looks like it might have Big Bull Crocker from Madworld in it too. Not enough runaway homicidal minotaurs in games these days.
Im probably completly wrong. heres for wishful thinking.

I don't want to see these guys go down that path.

Bayonetta was their biggest sucess, right? So why no sequel?
The same reason there's no sequel to The Usual Suspects or Citizen Kane, would be my guess.
(yeah okay I'm being hyperbolistic, but bayonetta is one of my favorite games ever, and my point is that I don't think you could make a sequel to bayonetta and have it be as good as the first one)
Platinum is all about bringing new content to the people and stuff.
Red Dead Redemption was a clear improvement on Red Dead Revolver.
Just Cause 2 beat the tar out of JC1.
But what the hell can you do to improve on Bayonetta? You'd be gilding the lily.
I mean, the thing I loved most about Bayonetta was that it never overstayed its welcome.
Bayonetta ended with you punching God into the sun.
It's really hard to better that with a sequel.
Looks hot (or cool? Pun!). Seems to carry some of the Bayonetta legacy.
I also hope we get Proops and DiMaggio back as commentators. I loved hearing commentary on the ludicrous moves from, essentially, Bender. But again, this isn't Madworld.
But mostly I hope its better than those Ultimate Alliance games.
Because Madworld was shit. Come at me bros with all the red text and bolds or whatever, Madworld was shit.
Punch the devil into the sun, obviously.
Then go chill with Dante and kick Mundus's ass. Again.
Bayonetta 3 could end by having you punch the devil and god inhabited sun into another sun. You know, Gurenn Lagann style levels of progression.
Well, this could kind of be like that.
The gameplay definitely looks closer to Bayonetta than to Madworld.

Of course, he does seem pretty upgraded from his Madworld days. I seem to recall that guy was wearing just a leather apron and a severed bull's head, so you know. :shock:
I wonder what else they've got in mind? It would be a little strange if this game was only Madworld related.
This is sounding more and more like a spiritual sequel.
Please oh PLEASE bring Proops and DiMaggio back.
That would just be the bees knees.
I'd be in for that. Just more nonsense and great gameplay.
Platinum doesn't have that many titles, but if they're gonna rope in this many Madworld characters, they really oughta have some from their other stuff too, because that particular game is starting to take over what they're doing here.
Well, I mean, two of their characters already look disturbingly close to Sam/Bayonetta.
Yeah, but why make lookalike for those characters but not the Madworld ones?
Now, back to this baby. You just toss a muthafucka into this here jet engine and accelerate that ass into the danger zone at thirty thousand G's!
...hey, what's goin' on baby? Can't you see I'm...hey, hey, HEY! What'chu doin? I'm talking to the people! I'm trying to break it...ahh, aaaah! Bitch, I'mma pimp smack yo' ass when I get outta..."
AWWWWW, HEEEEELLLLLL NAAWWWWWWWWW!!!!
