The Final "Platinum 4" Reveal is Happening Very Soon

The Final "Platinum 4" Reveal is Happening Very Soon

It looks like April 1 is when we're going to hear about PlatinumGames' final announcement.

PlatinumGames is entering a brand-new era, moving into full independence instead of relying on work-for-hire. To kick off the era, the studio launched "Platinum 4" announcements, four announcements of new Platinum projects. The first announcement was The Wonderful 101: Remastered, followed by the all-new Project G.G., and the establishment of PlatinumGames Tokyo.

Now, we know when we're getting the fourth and final announcement. PlatinumGames updated its official site today with "04.01" underneath the only greyed-out star. That means we'll likely get some information on April 1.

Given that it's the final announcement, there is a little expectation that it'll be a major one. "The last one is a secret. We’re doing something very Platinum and interesting. Look forward to it," said PlatinumGames co-founder and executive director Atsushi Inaba in an interview with Famitsu (via Gematsu).

PlatinumGames is already working on a new engine to make "bigger, more expressive games". If you want to dive into more about what's happening at the studio, USgamer spoke to Inaba and director Hideki Kamiya about the studio's history, The Wonderful 101, and Project G.G. And we're still waiting to see if Dru Hill's Sisqo gets to be in The Wonderful 101.
