Hideki Kamiya: "I want to work on a Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe remake"

The PlatinumGames director reveals what Capcom titles he'd like to work on again.

Before heading off to become a designer, director, and co-founder at PlatinumGames, Hideki Kamiya made his mark on video games at Capcom where he directed games like Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe. Apparently, he'd be willing to go back if it meant working on the games he helped create in the first place.

In a new interview with Dengeki PlayStation (Thanks Siliconera), Kamiya said:

"I want to work on a Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe remake, or a true sequel for Okami. A cooperation with Dante (from Devil May Cry) and Bayonetta might also be fun. Dear Capcom, if it's okay with someone like me, I will help anytime. Best regards. Everyone, bow down your heads together with me!"

Kamiya's last game in the director's chair, Scalebound, was a planned collaboration with Microsoft Studios. Unfortunately the game was cancelled earlier in 2017.

PlatinumGames did find success this year with Nier: Automata, working with Square-Enix and director Yoko Taro. Nier was a critical and commercial success that Kamiya said "saved Platinum." Square-Enix expects more Nier titles in the future.
