PGTV Episode 6 – Hideki Answers Your Questions!


Filed: Bayonetta, Community, Games, PGTV, PlatinumGames

Hi all,

As Kamiya-san mentioned in his last blog, we have been trying to figure out a way to answer all your questions while still making sure we can tell you all about Bayonetta as well.

How do we think we can solve the problem? Video!! With subtitles and audio, we can create something that both our Japanese and foreign fans can enjoy. We can answer even more questions! It’s perfect!

(Note: This was filmed prior to E3 2009.)

Hideki Answers Your Questions is going to be something we try to do from time to time, covering as many of your questions as we can.

I’ve started a new thread in the Bayonetta section of the Forum for Hideki Answers questions. We will close the thread and start a new one each time a new version of the series goes live. So go ahead and get your questions in for the next episode of Hideki Answers.

As always, you can direct download the podcasts by using the RSS feed or subscribing via iTunes.

We’d love your feedback on this so we can make it better going forwards.

Kamiya san, you rock!!

DLC is pure evil. Please don’t ever support it. I hate being nickle and dimed with my video game content, and that’s what DLC feels like.

Also really loved the background music. I assume its another preview of Bayonetta’s music.

I appreciate the time and effort that went into answering all those questions. Also, on an unrelated note, I'm loving the music used throughout the interview. Keep it up!

Great idea, Kamiya-santachi! Hope I'll get a few questions on PGTV, it'll be like a real interview with you ;D

Another great episode of PGTV! I've been waiting for the next time JP would chat up Kamyia, you two play off each other really well, and the end result is always a very fun video with lots of info on Bayonetta!

I must ask, what is Bakeratta?

Concerning this new series, Hideki Answers, keep 'em coming. Everything was very well done, from the title card to the music cues, to the Q&A itself. I'm sure everyone will want to see more episodes like this!

Awesome interview! Kamiya is such a crazy fellow it's great to hear these Bayonetta details straight from him!

I was sad to hear he never played DMC3, since it was so much closer to his original creation than the 2nd one was, it even had Yuji Shimomura directing the cutscenes! You missed out, man!

Looking forward to the next batch of questions. :)

fantastic. this is one of the only games i'm looking forward to.

Wow… I was going to comment on something he said, but the pose made me lose all train of those.

Uhh… Everything sounds a-okay to me!

Oh, I thought the shooting stage was awesome. =P

baberific Posted on July 8, 2009 at 10:57 pm

Ho boy, Hideki kamiya??? answering our questions?? ON A PODCAST??

Wicked awesome!!

Now…time to ask my insignificant questions!!

I hugely enjoyed this video. The background music is my favorite Bayonetta song of everything I've heard so far. Its bubbly pop vibe may not be to everyone's taste, but as far as I'm concerned it's a perfect match for this game's unique tone. I hope the song turns out to be the main battle theme. It would be a fitting complement to Bayonetta's dynamic fighting style.

I was amazed by how many questions Kamiya addressed. Thank you for all of the information! (And thank you, JP, for requesting Kamiya to show us all that hilarious gravure idol pose again! I love it. You two are the most entertaining pair in interviews.) I'm going to consider signing up for a forum account to see if I can get one of my own questions answered in the next session.

Awesome. Games like this, DMC, and Godhand really drive me to want to do 3D. I have games and ideas pop into my head all that time and I can't wait to set them free. I'll be waiting on the demo so I can try some crazy combos.

Keep up the good work. Can't wait for the "finished" product.

great interview, kamiya san is the coolest. where can i get those cool stickers?

Zato Posted on July 14, 2009 at 8:44 pm

How many Devil May Cry questions are people going to ask? Man all I want to know is if this game is coming to the PC.

Alec Posted on July 20, 2009 at 10:43 am

lol @ the awkward silence when Bayo-Dash is mentioned xD Interesting otherwise. I had read transcripts of this on it seems so it wasn't all news though. Keep it up ^^

Stubbs Posted on July 24, 2009 at 7:38 pm

Oh man, that pose was hilarious! Love the fact that you guys are willing to appease the fans and take your time to answer our questions.
