Bayonetta. Devil May Cry. Two similar yet wildly different games that will break your controller in small pieces of plastic, if you ever tried to solo your way through both franchises in back to back sessions. While the two games do share a certain sense of style, they’re also like night and day in the gameplay department, two sides of the same coin in a currency of kickass action games. But what would happen if those two characters crossed over and joined forces?
Well, I’d imagine a ton of horrible fan fiction, but that’s a monster to be tackled on another day. Speaking to DualShockers, Capcom’s Ray Jimenez expressed interest in bringing the two together:
As a developer and a gamer I would love to do that and how that would happen, well let me just say to you that would be the most insane gonzo action game you would ever see with tag-team, back-and-forth, switching and combos with stylish Dante or whoever coming in and doing stuff. It would actually be a dream come true.
This is all just wishful thinking at this point however, as Capcom hasn’t exactly made an official announcement of the sort. As Jimenez explained “I’m sure with Capcom it’s possible to do really cool things, but I don’t know if this would ever happen, but I can’t deny that the thought of it would be totally mind blowing and epic. It would be dope.”
I think that a game of that scale would fracture the entire multiverse. But I’d sell Geoff’s organs for such a title to be made. You’d need an all-star cast however, with Hideki Kamiya returning to direct two of his cult classic characters. A tall order, when you think about it. But imagine combining the Tag Climax mode from Bayonetta 2 in order to create a co-op experience where both Dante and Bayonetta trade blows and quips.
I’d drown in my own juices if that game was ever made.
