Bayonetta 2? Not Before Viewtiful Joe 3 Says Kamiya

It looks like there might be more impediments preventing Bayonetta 2 from seeing the light of day anytime soon, as the game's director, Hideki Kamiya has revealed to Famitsu magazine that he'd sooner make a new Viewtiful Joe game than return to the lithe witch's adventures.
The last Viewtiful Joe was the second game, which released way back in 2004 and the little hero's latest appearance saw him mixing it up in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Viewtiful Joe 3 could be on the cards for Capcom then, but Kamiya revealed that he still meets up with Bayonetta's producer to talk sequels and spin-offs over a beer.
So while Viewtiful Joe 3 might be next on Kamiya's agenda, it's good to know that he's at least thinking about a Bayonetta sequel. Presumably, this also rubbishes speculations earlier this year that Bayonetta 2 had been binned before even being announced. Fingers crossed.
