Platinum Games Teases New Announcement After April Fool’s Joke

Late last month, Platinum Games teased that the last of their Platinum4 announcements would be arriving on 1 April 2020. Somewhat expectedly, that turned out to be an April Fool’s Joke, with the “announcement” being about a collaboration with Hamster Corporation for an arcade game called Sol Cresta, a supposed follow-up to the Moon Cresta and Terra Cresta games.

Now, Platinum has revealed that there will actually be a proper announcement. “The #Platinum4 isn’t over! Bonus Stage coming soon….” was the cryptic message on Twitter. 

And that’s about it for the moment. Hopefully, this actual announcement will be made sometime this month and be worth the wait.

Meanwhile, Platinum chief game designer Hideki Kamiya (as translated by Siliconera) had this to say about the April Fool’s Joke:

“We, PlatinumGames, went all-out for this year’s April Fools’ again.

While I’m aware that we’re living in troubled times, as an entertainer there’s a part of me that just wants to cheer you all up, even if it’s just a little.

And a big thank you goes out to the folks at Hamster for their cooperation.

I’ve always had my own rules about April Fools’ jokes such as ‘make it obvious that it’s a lie’ and ‘make sure it doesn’t disappoint even if they know it’s a lie’ and so on.

However, this time it was ‘make something that will get us (me?) excited’ and we went full stupid with it.

I hope that you were able to get a good laugh and remind yourself that this is PlatinumGames.”
