Reason was not lacking PlatinumGames when he said his fourth Platinum 4 initiative announcement was going to blow a lot of heads. The study by Kamiya, Inaba and company left what would be the last announcement of their new campaign for last April 1. Being the day it is, April Fools, everyone was very attentive to what their move would be. And, in fact, it was what many expected, an entire innocent one with the name of SOL CRESTA. However, what no one counted on was that there was a fifth announcement.
Indeed, the Japanese team has updated Platinum 4 official website forward one Bonus Phase that it will bring with it a fifth announcement (Are we talking about Platinum 5 or Platinum 4 + 1?), although he did not want to mention anything else about it. The only thing confirmed about this novelty is that will be shown throughout 2020
«????? – XX.XX.2020 ». This is all we know about the upcoming Japanese study announcement. First it was The Wonderful 101 Remastered, then the opening of a studio in Tokyo and the announcement of Project G.G. What remains now after the April Fools joke? For the moment, whatever it is, it is quite a mystery that they are keeping quite suspicious, although they want to raise expectations from the first moment.
We will remain attentive to any possible change and / or news in this regard. Platinum wants us to take a close look at it in 2020 and, with its pluses and minuses, this initiative that it has shaped with a website included is something that is getting everyone to talk about the studio. Will we finish speaking well when I make the bonus announcement that you put forward?
What will be the fifth Platinum 4 announcement?
Doubts are in the air, and more with a study like this. From PlatinumGames they have ensured that all Platinum 4 initiative projects are independent products and that they try to follow the path of study independence, always linked to third parties to shape sagas like Bayonetta, without going any further. Now, it is to be hoped that the latest announcement to be made is also something that will continue, although it remains to be seen if they will have managed to obtain an already established license or if, on the contrary, they want to innovate and surprise with something completely new.
They have already advanced having their own engine for their creations, so we can at least hope that the next too use the PlatinumEngine that they have shaped. Will we finally see materialized those characters that they created so long ago, Platinum Man on the way? We will find out soon.
