For those who don't know, Platinum Games, Inc. was founded by the former staff of Clover Studios after Capcom dissolved the development studio back into the company proper. They are an independent development studio, no longer associated with Capcom, and include such gaming greats as Shinji Mikami, Hideki Kamiya, and Atsushi Inaba.

Initially calling themselves "Seeds," they have since changed their name to "Platinum Games, Inc." and have teamed up with Sega to publish their first three games:

• Bayonetta, directed by DMC creator Hideki Kamiya, and is described by the site’s correspondent as a “stylish action game” with “a witch battling angels”. Apparently she has guns on her feet.
• A science-fiction RPG for the DS called Infinite Line, where you play as a starship captain, customising your ship and crew.
• A Wii game called MadWorld. ...it’s, “Black and white Sin City graphics, with red blood. Ultra ultra violent. Fatality moves like shoving a post through someone’s head. Chainsaw on your right arm.”

just a reminder for those of you who piss and drool over RE 5, DMC 4, and Okami, those games series were made by THESE people. Their talent is now being used here, if anything i would be afraid for capcom now.

MadWorld looks absolutely stunning. Day one for me, easily. I'm a huge No More Heroes fan and this looks to be right up that alley.

Infinite Line looks pretty cool too. Sounds like Skies of Arcadia....IIIIIN SPACEEEEEE...

I'll have to see actual gameplay of Bayonetta before I can form an opinion, but damn if I'm not intrigued.

Infinite Line sounds cool enough, don't really have much to say about the others though.

Took the words from my mouth. I LOVED Clover and now I LOVE Platinum. I am especially looking forward to Bayonetta. I want to cosplay her ..........
