    It's time to get the rumor mill flowing, thanks to a new teaser site from PlatinumGames. There's hardly anything to see, besides a single "4", floating across a black background, while the number occasionally displays a glitchy graphic. At the bottom of the site, it states "Platinum4 site is now open", with a toggle for both Japanese and English languages. This could mean quite possibly anything, but Platinum seems quite keen to hype whatever it is up, with a vague tweet from Hideki Kamiya mentioning the number 4. Whether or not this could be related to the rumor that claims Platinum is set to announce a Kickstarter later today for a port of the Wii U title The Wonderful 101, or a brand new game announcement, will only be known once an official reveal is made.

    Maybe it's a scaled down IOS port called The Wonderful 4.

    It will combine 4 of their characters into a game. It will be that guy from the cancelled game, the Wii game, Bayonetta and other guy from that PS3 game.

    I can't really think of anything that Platinum is usually associated with that would be getting a fourth game. The closest I can guess would be NieR, since that is usually associated with those glitchy graphics. Unless Square Enix was so happy with how Automata turned out they're letting Platinum make a Drakengard 4, lol. Chances are it's just a new IP with a 4 in the name or concept though.

    It will be a game called 4, and it's about math solving.

    I'm so down for Platinum doing anything else in the Drakengard "world".

    it's probably about 4 games being actively in development. Those games will be smaller in scale, compared to most of their projects so far.
    Either that, or the 4 is related to a game series. i dunno :/

    Actually, Retro Studios did like Bamco and gave up and now it's Platinum's turn to try.
