After a mysterious Bayonetta-themed countdown, SEGA has revealed that Platinum Games’ Bayonetta will be available on Steam as of today.
After an April Fools joke involving a free, 2D Bayonetta-themed game hit Steam two weeks ago, SEGA has been running a mysterious countdown set to end on April 11th. Hopes of many Umbran Witch fans were set high for a sequel to Bayonetta 2 or another speculated PC version of one of the titles. After the two-week-long wait, SEGA has finally revealed that the first Bayonetta game has arrived on PC.
Bayonetta was first released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 2009 in Japan and later in January 2010 for the European, Australian and North American regions. Thanks to the to the game’s popularity, it was later ported to the Nintendo Wii U at the end of 2014.
Bayonetta is an intense 3D action game with heavy focus on both melee and ranged combat with prominent combo strings. The game’s story follows the titular stylish shapeshifting and gun-totting amnesiac witch Bayonetta on a quest to recover her memories and restore the balance to the world.
Be sure to check out a few sample screenshots from the Steam page of the game.
Bayonetta is now available on Steam for PC-compatible operating systems at the asking price $19.99, with 4K resolution, dual audio (Japanese and English) support as well as a limited-time deluxe edition containing a digital OST sampler, digital art book, wallpaper, and avatars for those that decide to buy the game before the 25th of April.
We have previously reviewed the Wii U version of the title, which you can read here.
The arrival of the world’s most elegant witch on PC will surely set some modder hearts ablaze and we will soon be seeing how far her shapeshifting powers can be stretched with a few tools and good and honest elbow grease. Infinite climaxes await.
