Popular developer PlatinumGames has updated its teasing “Platinum 4” website, now confirming that its bonus fifth reveal, added to the initial quartet back in April 2020, will be ready to show its hand at some point in 2021.
The site itself still features zero clues to the project’s identity, simply noting that the proverbial beans will be spilled on “xx.xx.21”. The teaser in question still results in a strange and glitchy “Bonus Stage” message. For now we’ll just have to wait and see. I mean, we’re all on the same page here, right? But don’t say it. I don’t want to jinx it.
Revealed in early-2020, which took place 14 years ago, The Platinum 4 announcements were The Wonderful 101 Remastered, Hideki Kamiya’s still-in-development kaiju fighter Project G.G., the opening of a new Platinum studio in Tokyo, and April Fool’s gag Sol Cresta. The fifth teaser was added soon after, perhaps to placate fans disappointed at the final reveal being a goofy joke… Though Sol Cresta did actually look pretty ace.
