Before Hideki Kamiya was blocking millions of insects on Twitter and leading the charge at PlatinumGames, he was working with Capcom and Clover Studio. During this period he helped bring multiple new IPs to life, including the side-scrolling beat ’em up series Viewtiful Joe and the stunning action-adventure game Okami.
At PAX East this weekend, Kamiya was asked if he would like to revisit these older IPs and perhaps even some of the failed ones, such as Scalebound. Unsurprisingly, it’s not really his decision to make anymore, even if he does want to make everything – so it’s up to fans to let Capcom know:
Okami 2.. Scalebound.. Viewtiful Joe 3.. Dante VS Bayonetta.. Devil May Cry 0.. I want to make everything! ..please email Capcom
He even joked about a “Dante VS Bayonetta” game, which excited a lot of fans over on social media. As for a Scalebound comeback, that’s probably something Microsoft would need to be contacted about, as it still owns the rights. In saying this, it’s “very unlikely” to return.
Would you like to Capcom revive any of the above-mentioned IPs? Did you play the Viewtiful Joe games and Okami back when they were originally released? Leave a comment below.
