Happy New Year 2013

Platinum Games

Filed: Community, PlatinumGames

Hi everyone. Tatsuya Minami here. Happy New Year’s from PlatinumGames. First of all, thank you for all the amazing support over the past year. We hope you will continue to provide us the same amazing backing in 2013.

It’s been a year already!?
That’s how I felt on New Year’s this year. It is hard to believe how fast the past year went by.

Even though a year is a set period of time, it can feel longer or shorter depending on your own situation. Or age. A year felt like forever when I was a child, but once I became an adult, especially after I turned 30, time seems to be speeding up for me. Time really has flown since we started PlatinumGames… But maybe that is just how I feel.

Time is a funny thing. This past December we had elections in Japan. It was a landslide for the previous ruling party, the LDP, against the party that was in power, the DPJ. Three years ago, the DPJ had their own landslide victory, only to see their fortunes change in 2012. Three years may sound like forever, but I’m sure it was an instant for some. However, no matter how it feels, three years is three years. In three years, fortunes changed rapidly for those in power based upon what they had done until that point. And that is what is important — What have you done?


It’s been a year already.
But there is no time to be sentimental about it. We’ve spent the last year working hard on Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and now its release is right around the corner. Our collaboration with Konami is finally coming to fruition, and gamers everywhere will be able to play the results. We are proud of what we’ve accomplished, and I hope you take the time to check out the end product of our efforts.

We also continue to work hard on our titles alongside Nintendo – The Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2. We can’t wait to share some new details about them with you soon.


The 2013 work year began today for us at PlatinumGames. I wonder how we will end up feeling about these upcoming 365 days. We will continue to focus everyday on our mission to make great games and give gamers everywhere things they will enjoy. With that in mind, we can’t wait to take advantage of 365 more days.

Happy new year for everyone at Platinum Games! Hope you guys feel great for what uou have done until now. I'm really excited to play Anarchy Reigns.

I liked the comment about japanese elections. I'm studying japanese, and sometimes I try to read the Kamiya japanese tweets. Sadly, I only know very few kanjis. hahaha

Just asking, do you guys read the comments or they are just for the users?

Cheers from Brazil!

Some words from a loyal western fan: Congratulations to all of the masters at PG* for all you have accomplished, & have gifted the world with. I bow to you humbly. A few requests (& I apologize if I have said this before…): Art books for VANQUISH & METAL GEAR RISING, & a reprint of The Eyes of Bayonetta. A Japanese voice track option & 3D character model viewer for MG RISING. An in-engine trailer for BAYONETTA 2. I'm also greatly anticipating THE WONDERFUL 101. I love you Platinum*! I thank you from the depths of my heart for keeping true Japanese gaming alive (& injecting it with a shot of adrenaline…) I look forward to all of your future endeavors.
