If you’ve been following PlatinumGames like Mr Toffee has, you’ll recognize Yusuke Hashimoto’s name. He’s the producer of the first Bayonetta and the director of the Bayonetta 2. He recently left the company this February and after months of silence, he put this up on his Twitter account.

If you’re getting Breath of Fire vibes from this art, that’s because it’s from Tatsuya Yoshikawa who did the character design and in-game graphics for the Capcom RPG series that really needs a revival of sorts.
Beyond that, not much is known about Hashimoto’s latest. Will it be an action game? Will it be an RPG? We’ll never know until later, so savour this artwork in the meantime.
