Sega and PlatinumGames in New IP Deals

Sega and PlatinumGames have signed a deal for four new games based on new IPs.

Details for three of the titles were provided but the fourth remains hidden for now.

The announced games were Bayonetta, Infinite Line, and Madworld.

Bayonetta is positioned as an action-adventure title for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The protagonist is a reborn witch doing battle with angels and will feature "witch-like abilities" along with decidedly unwitch-like ones, such as guns blasting from all extremities.

Infinite Lines places the player in the role of a spaceship captain and is inspired by an Arthur C. Clarke nove, Childhood's End. More than 200 ship designs will be available.

Madworld is designed by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami and will showcase black-and-white visuals with only the blood in color. Developers said they are keen to help diversify the Wii's rather homogeneous gaming selection with an emphasis on stylistically depicted violence.
