What you need to know
- PlatinumGames is in the midst of announcing four new projects.
- The first announcement was The Wonderful 101 Remastered Kickstarter.
- The studio has now announced Project G.G. from Hideki Kamiya.
Our first look at Hideki Kamiya's latest project gives us a glimpse of some kaiju-inspired mayhem much like Pacific Rim. PlatinumGames is self-publishing this title so the studio has complete control over every aspect.
In a letter to fans, Kamiya outlined some of the struggles that comes with self-publishing, but also the benefits.
Which brings us to Project G.G. (that's just a working title, by the way). Project G.G. is different. Unlike any of the games we've made so far, it's going to be a 100% PlatinumGames title. For everything from its setting and characters, to its game design and story, to how it's promoted – PlatinumGames is in full control.
Of course, that has its downsides, too. We'll be taking on new risks that we've never had to assume before as a contracted developer. Having full control over the Project G.G. IP gives us a ton of freedom, but also a ton of responsibility. Still, I think we can harness that sense of responsibility and turn it into motivation to make Project G.G. the best game it can be.
PlatinumGames is currently hiring for positions related to Project G.G. on its website. Project G.G. does not have a release date nor was it announced for any specific platforms as of yet.
