Bayonetta is a game that was released way back in 2009 on PS3 and Xbox 360 but is now being re-released on Steam with some notable graphical upgrades, Sega has revealed today.
The Steam release costs £14.99 ($20) and comes with 4k and HDR support. 60 FPS will be supported too with various graphical options such as shadow quality and anti-aliasing. In addition to these enhancements, Mouse and Keyboard support is available along with Japanese and English voice options. Apparently Platinum Games (whose most recent outing was Nier: Automata) have been exclusively involved with the PC port which is potentially good news.
In this third person action game, you follow the titular protagonist who has magical abilities and is capable of summoning demons with her own hair. The game follows the typical trope of light versus dark but with a slight twist, you play on the side of darkness, as Bayonetta is of the Umbran witch clan who must battle against the forces of light – the Lumen Sages. Bayonetta is an eccentric game, and it never represses from its whimsical nature.
This isn’t the first time Sega has ported old console games onto Steam, with games like Valkyria Chronicles and The Typing of the Dead having been re-released in recent years.
