Game industry job openings are listed on a variety of sites, including Indeed.com . While many of these listings are for entry level positions, there are also some senior positions available. A job opening for a visual effects coordinator at Namco Bandai in the United States is a perfect example of this, as the company is currently hiring candidates for this position. Applicants must have experience working in the video game industry, with either a bachelor’s degree or more than two years of relevant experience, and must also be experienced in creating and lighting 3D environments, and working with VFX software such as Maya, 3DS Max and After Effects.

The Bayonetta series is one of Platinum’s most popular properties and the upcoming sequel is sure to build on the franchise’s legacy. However, this time around there is a lot more to the game than just Bayonetta. First of all, Platinum Games has brought in a lot of new staff and has already begun production. The game is expected to release in early 2018 for the PS4 and Xbox One.

In a week that Capcom and PlatinumGames released a new trailer for Bayonetta 2, I thought I would treat you to another look behind the scenes of the sequel. This time we are focusing on the development of the game’s opening cinematic.

Bayonetta 2 will see a return to the short, fast action of the original. This will also mean that this time around, the story is told through gameplay.

During the most recent Nintendo Direct, Nintendo debuted a new trailer for Platinum Games’ Bayonetta 2, which displays not gameplay but a look at the game’s development. Take a look at the trailer below.

 

 

They have been hesitant to release any game video, but expect more in the coming months. Bayonetta 2 is a Wii U exclusive game that will be released later this year.
