Platinum responds to Bayonetta 3 voice actress dispute


Bayonetta close up

PlatinumGames has offered its “full support” to Bayonetta 3 voice actress Jennifer Hale following the recent voice actress pay fiasco.

In the wake of original Bayonetta voice actress Hellena Taylor releasing a series of videos claiming she was only offered $4k to work on the third game, fans turned on Hale for accepting the role instead. She has since asked for kindness, tweeting “lets just be good to each other”.

Platinum has echoed Hales request in its official statement, below in full.

“We give our full support to Jennifer Hale as the new Bayonetta, and align with everything in her statement.

“We ask people to please refrain from any further comments that would disrespect Jennifer or any of the other contributors to the series.”

In a previous statement (referred to here by Platinum), Hale noted she was under NDA so was unable to speak directly on the situation.

However she did add: “I sincerely ask that everyone keep in mind that this game has been created by an entire team of hard-working, dedicated people and I hope everyone will keep an open mind about what theyve created.”

Many others in the voice acting community have weighed in with their thoughts.

Nintendo, the publisher of the Switch exclusive, has not publicly commented on the situation, though its latest Bayonetta 3 tweet stirred up feelings from both sides of the debate.
