Platinum Games starts ‘Umbran Studies’ series, a developer blog for Bayonetta 3

We’re less than a month away from Bayonetta 3’s release and to ramp up the countdown, Platinum Games has started a developer blog for the title. Named after the in-game tutorial in the series, this version of Umbran Studies will contain blog posts from different members of the development team and details (and absolutely no spoilers) for Bayonetta 3.

First blog post by Yosuke Miyata, Director of Bayonetta 3. Since this is the opening post, Miyata covers the Bayonetta 3 trailer shown during the last Nintendo Direct as well as the approximately 8-minute gameplay video (dubbed Ways of the Witch) which was released after the presentation.

From the Ways of the Witch trailer, Miyata talks about the two brand-new gameplay features that were introduced (Demon Slave and Demon Masquerade). He also states that the development team is “confident that we have created a Bayonetta title that hosts the highest degree of freedom and the most content-intensive experiences in the entire series.”

Expect another release of Umbran studies as we get closer to the release of Bayonetta 3 on Friday, October 28.
