Project G.G. Teaser Trailer Revealed, the Conclusion to PlatinumGames' Hero Trilogy

Here's a first look at PlatinumGames' fully-owned new project.

The second of PlatinumGames' four announcements was made today, and it's a big one. Project G.G. is the working name of PlatinumGames' next original game, and according to director Hideki Kamiya, it will be entirely PlatinumGames' project.

Teased in Famitsu as the final entry in the superhero trilogy, following Viewtful Joe and The Wonderful 101, Project G.G. features an Ultraman-like transforming superhero. In the teaser trailer posted today, they grow to the size of a building in order to fight a massive monster that's attacking a city (and a poor dog).

On PlatinumGames' site, Kamiya discussed what this "all-new, all-original" project means for the studio. While PlatinumGames has worked on a lot of different properties, from existing ones like Nier and Transformers to original series like Bayonetta, it's always been the developer.

"But ultimately, all of those games belong to publishers," Kamiya says. "Any and all decisions about how those games are promoted, how their content is used, and so on, are entirely up to the publisher."

Project G.G. will be different. Unlike PlatinumGames' other projects, Kamiya says this game will be "a 100% PlatinumGames title." This will be both developed and published by PlatinumGames itself.

"For everything from its setting and characters, to its game design and story, to how it’s promoted–PlatinumGames is in full control," Kamiya says.

Considering its experiment with crowdfunding The Wonderful 101: Remastered has been a success, the odds seem to more in PlatinumGames' corner. It now joins studios like Quantic Dream in gaining some independence for its games, and how they will be promoted and distributed.
