Platinum Games Is Working On A New Hero-Based Action Game It Hopes Will Be The Studio’s Ultraman
The next title from Platnium Games has been revealed in the Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, and details are now coming to light. The title, which is currently known as Project GG, will be directed by Hideki Kamiya (director of Bayonetta).
Prominent tweeter Wario64 has given an overview, based on information posted to Japanese website Ryokutya2089. Kamiya has said that the game is the third and final entry in his “hero” trilogy, following Viewtiful Joe and The Wonderful 101.
In the interview, Kamiya and producer Atsushi Inaba talk about the project in relation to their previous works; they describe Viewtiful Joe as being like their Kamen Rider, while saying that this new game will be more like their Ultraman. There are two different ways one could interpret this in translation: either the game takes some inspiration from Japanese hero Ultraman and the tokusatsu genre, or they intend for the work to be as impactful as Ultraman, which is beloved in Japan and has been hugely influential on pop-culture as a whole.

The game, which will be the first title published independently by Platnium Games, is targeting all platforms. He says there’s 15 people currently working on it, but the studio hopes to scale up the project considerably to have more developers on it. The game also seems to be quite early in development, so it could be some time before it’s shown off publicly.
