PlatinumGames Teases "Project GG," Last Entry in the "Hero Trilogy"

Following on from Viewtiful Joe and The Wonderful 101.

Hideki Kamiya, one of the figureheads of PlatinumGames, is teasing an imminent announcement. "Project GG," as Kamiya refers to Platinum's next game, is the final entry in the "hero trilogy."

The "hero trilogy" that Kamiya refers to is seemingly a series made up of Viewtiful Joe and The Wonderful 101. The latter of these recently garnered fantastic support in a crowdfunding bid for ports to current consoles, raising over $1.3 million as of early February. The tease from Kamiya comes in the most recent issue of Famitsu Weekly, which as ever has been archived online by Ryokutya2089.

"Project GG," as Kamiya names it, will be a "big hero" action game, so it's easy to see how it fits alongside Viewtiful Joe and The Wonderful 101 in a trilogy. Additionally, Kamiya states the game is targeting all existing platforms, seemingly including PC and Nintendo Switch.

It's worth remembering that this is the second game of four total announcements from PlatinumGames. The first of these was the crowdfunding campaign for The Wonderful 101 ports to current platforms, and it seems like "Project GG" is the second game of the four.

As for the last four games? Kamiya's being coy. While the producer doesn't reveal any concrete details for the final two projects, he does state that the final one will be "very interesting." I wonder whether SisQo wants to star in these projects too.
