Platinum Games announces Project GG, a new action title from Hideki Kamiya

By Sean Carey,
Hideki Kamiya has announced Platinum Games' latest title, Project GG and dropped a new teaser trailer to go with the news. Project GG will be the first game in the company's history to be self-published by the developer and is the final episode in Kamiya's superhero trilogy following Viewtiful Joe and The Wonderful 101.

The trailer doesn't give too much away. All we can see from the video is a city being attacked before a person in a mech suit takes on a giant robot dinosaur. Kamiya talked more about the project in a post over on the developer's website. He revealed that the game is different compared to Platinum's previous offerings and that the company would be solely at the helm.

"Project GG is different. Unlike any of the games we've made so far, it's going to be a 100% Platinum Games title. For everything from its setting and characters, to its game design and story, to how it's promoted – Platinum Games is in full control," said Kamiya.

With Platinum Games self-publishing Project GG, Kamiya is fully aware of the risks that the company might come up against but is also aware of the freedom this opportunity presents. "We'll be taking on new risks that we've never had to assume before as a contracted developer. Having full control over the Project GG IP gives us a ton of freedom, but also a ton of responsibility. I think we can harness that sense of responsibility and turn it into motivation to make Project GG the best game it can be."

No target window for release has been given; however, Kamiya says that Platinum Games is just starting the project and "the finish line is still a long way away."
