PlatinumGames has announced its newest game, Project G.G. The new game looks to combine the style and action of Platinum with Kaiju monsters.
With the announcement, Platinum also put out a teaser trailer for the game. While it is only a teaser, it sets an interesting tone for what may come.
The trailer begins with a city coming under attack from an unseen monster. People are fleeing the streets in panic while a Shiba Inu dog struggles to get its leash out of some fallen rubble.
As the dog struggles, the monster smashes a building over onto the dog. Before the dog is crushed, a mysterious figure emerges and grows to an immense size. This figure then stares down the monster, and sprints to attack it.
The trailer also details that Atsushi Inabe will serve as the producer of the game, and Hideki Kamiya will be the director of the game.
This new project looks to bring about the style of PlatinumGames with the action of giant monster movies like Godzilla. It also means a new direction for Platinum itself.
Project G.G. Will Be PlatinumGames’ First Self Published Game
While PlatinumGames has developed popular hits like Bayonetta and assisted on games like Nier: Automata, Project G.G. will be their first self-published game. Along with the trailer, PlatinumGames chief game designer Hideki Kamiya released a statement about the game and self-publishing the title.
In the statement, Kamiya sees the future as bright towards the possibilities of self-publishing their titles. Having full control of their titles means they can dictate the future, not be beholden to others that own the rights to them.
Even though this path presents new opportunities, Kamiya also addresses the challenges that they also will face. Kamiya addresses that there is a lot of responsibility with this game, but at the same time sees a positive light in it overall.
PlatinumGames has been in a major spotlight recently, most notably with its Kickstarter campaign for a remastered Wonderful 101.
