Platinum Games, the makers of Bayonetta, Vanquish, The Wonderful 101 and the team behind NieR: Automata opened up a new Twitter account. The first tweet they fired off? This one.

Now, that’s obviously an image featuring Bayonetta from Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2. The coloring of the images also draws a direct line to the neon blue and red Joy-Con for the Nintendo Switch. Plenty have made that connect, and some tweeted about it.
The interesting thing? Platinum actually liked one of the tweets making the connection. Are they teasing Nintendo Switch ports of Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2? Seems like it.

Having played through both already, I’d absolutely buy these games again on the Nintendo Switch if they really happen. Bayonetta is a beautiful example of Japanese action game development, and Platinum are one of the best in the modern era for the genre.
If this turns into more than a tease, we’ll have the news.
