Following the news of Sega’s April Fools joke that saw the Bayonetta Series get launched onto Steam in 8-bit glory(although, it was 16-bit to be fair), there’s now another announcement that they have to make. The first installment of the Bayonetta series will be getting its first port onto the PC since it’s debut back in 2009, an almost 8-year hiatus that shouldn’t have been. Finally, gamers can rejoice as they meet the consequences of fighting as Cereza in a hyperactive world that combines demons and angels. With a lot of blood and gore.
Platinum Games were the ones directly behind the PC port of the game with Sega’s approval.
The port itself is to have an updated look, as the visuals have been remastered to a smooth 4K at 60 frames-per-second. The port supports “anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering, SSAO lighting, scalable texture and shadow quality, and more,” Sega claims. In testing, the staff at CNG were able to completely max out the settings and run the game very smoothly. However, while the game plays at a 60fps, it becomes locked during cutscenes and drops to about 30fps.
Exclusively available on Steam, Bayonetta supports keyboard and mice, as well as the homebrew features of the Steam platform, such as Trading Cards, Achievements, Big Picture Mode, Cloud save and leaderboards, in case you want to compete with your friends in this highly action-packed game.
Sega is steadily taking its games onto PC platform with many of the company’s games already being added, such as Sonic Generations and Typing of the Dead.
