As you’re no doubt aware, there’s been quite a situation brewing recently between PlatinumGames and original Bayonetta voice actor, Hellena Taylor. To catch you up very quickly, Taylor alleged that PlatinumGames offered her $4,000 to reprise her role as Bayonetta for Bayonetta 3, and she turned the offer down. Taylor then told fans to boycott the game via a series of videos shared on Twitter. Shortly after, PlatinumGames’ Hideki Kamiya took to Twitter to say “Sad and deplorable about the attitude of untruth. That’s what all I can tell now.”
Since sharing that tweet, Hideki Kamiya’s Twitter has gone dark. We don’t know if he’s official deleted the Twitter account or just gone inactive for the time being, but either way, Kamiya’s presence is gone. While we don’t have the official reasoning for this disappearance, it’s obviously quite likely this is tied to Taylor’s allegations and the flood of tweets heading to Kamiya’s account.
We’ll keep an eye on Kamiya’s Twitter going forward to see if he returns or shares further statement on this matter.
