It was originally founded under the name Seeds, Inc. on August 1, 2006 by Shinji Mikami, Atsushi Inaba and Hideki Kamiya, former key members of Capcom's Clover Studio, and still retains many other members of the studio.
PlatinumGames is known for titles such as Bayonetta, MadWorld, and The Wonderful 101, and for co-developing Star Fox Zero with Nintendo.
At launch, PlatinumGames's only representation in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U was from their Nintendo-exclusive title The Wonderful 101, featuring several trophies as well as music tracks.
Later, during the final video presentation, Bayonetta from Platinum's Bayonetta series was confirmed to be the final newcomer for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, available as DLC. She is also Sega's second playable representative in Super Smash Bros.
