    Back in January, we heard that Tencent would be investing in PlatinumGames, allowing them to self publish their own games.

    Now the company has revealed Project G.G:


    “Unlike any of the games we’ve made so far, it’s going to be a 100 percent Platinum Games title. For everything from its setting and characters, to its game design and story, to how it’s promoted–Platinum Games is in full control.” - director Hideki Kamiya.

    Hello, everyone. PlatinumGames chief game designer Hideki Kamiya here.

    It’s my honor today, at long last, to announce an all-new, all-original project from PlatinumGames. In the fourteen years since we founded this company, we’ve worked towards the dream of making and releasing a game based on a Platinum intellectual property. Now, we’re finally stepping up to that starting line.

    What makes this new title different from what we’ve done before? Let me explain a bit, because I’m sure you’ll agree that this is a giant step for PlatinumGames!

    We’ve made a wide variety of games throughout our history, sometimes based on existing properties, like NieR:Automata; sometimes wholly original stories, like Bayonetta and ASTRAL CHAIN. Our work has found a core of passionate fans who trust us to deliver high-quality action games.

    But PlatinumGames has thus far only been a developer. That means we make the games, and that’s it. All of our titles up until how have been made under contracts, with cooperation and funding from the publishers who distribute them.

    Of course, everyone at Platinum and I are extremely grateful for the relationship that we’ve made with all of you through the games we’ve made so far. But ultimately, all of those games belong to publishers. Any and all decisions about how those games are promoted, how their content is used, and so on, are entirely up to the publisher.

    As a creator, it’s hard not to think of my games as my children. After all, it takes a lot of hard work to raise them up, and a lot of love, too. However, once they’re done, any choices about them are entirely out of my hands. So, for example, no matter how many times people tell me, “You should make a sequel to this game,” or, “I’d love to see it on that console,” there’s nothing I can do about it.

    Which brings us to Project G.G. (that’s just a working title, by the way). Project G.G. is different. Unlike any of the games we’ve made so far, it’s going to be a 100% PlatinumGames title. For everything from its setting and characters, to its game design and story, to how it’s promoted – PlatinumGames is in full control.

    Of course, that has its downsides, too. We’ll be taking on new risks that we’ve never had to assume before as a contracted developer. Having full control over the Project G.G. IP gives us a ton of freedom, but also a ton of responsibility. Still, I think we can harness that sense of responsibility and turn it into motivation to make Project G.G. the best game it can be.

    Like I said before, with Project G.G., we’re stepping up to a starting line. The finish line is still a long way away. But I know I’m looking forward to running the race! I hope you’ll cheer us on.

    And if you’d like to join us at Platinum as we start out on this new endeavor, I sincerely hope you’ll take a look at our jobs page and see if there’s a position that’s right for you.

    On behalf of the Project G.G. team and all of PlatinumGames, thank you for your support!

    Platinum studio, overwhelmingly talented developers that never take themself too seriously.
    Their games never cease to amaze me, they deserve waaay more recognition (I'm having more fun in MG Revengeance, its cheese and rocking OST than mgs5 and its postmodern philosophy and constant antinuke preaching...).

    But I'm afraid kaijus and sentai stuff are too niche for the international market. I hope they will perform well.

    well there are good kaiju fighting games like godzilla destroy all monsters melee, if they can nail something like that then it might be good, but it wont be a normal platinium game imo.

    Love the humor and the throwback to the 60s style one liners.

    As usual I'd prefer if they had shown more gameplay, but I will admit that's one of the better teaser trailers I've seen. It's also neat that Platinum has grown large enough to develop two games at once (this and Babylon's Fall).

    Anyway, I wonder if you will be able to fight as both the little guy and the robot. Also, being able to switch at anytime.

    Wow, getting some strong Ultraman vibes here.
    At this pace, Kamiya will give tribute to the entirety of Tokusatsu media!

    Plus bayonetta 3, and they still have two unannounced things (the old "four" teaser website shows Project G.G. as the second out of the four).
