Remasters for Bayonetta and Vanquish Leak on the Microsoft Store

[quads id=10]

Whether you prefer boost-sliding around while firing your rifle or blasting away with your boot-mounted pistols, Sega and Platinum Games have you covered. In 2017, Sega released PC ports of both Vanquish and Bayonetta, and now it appears that remastered versions of both are coming to the Xbox One.

On Twitter, user @h0x0d first spotted a new listing for Vanquish on the Microsoft Store, followed shortly by listings for Bayonetta and a tenth anniversary bundle for both titles. All the Microsoft Store pages are still active, and list a February 18, 2020 release date. There’s currently no word on whether these remastered versions are coming to the PlayStation 4. The full description for the bundle also specifies that both will support 4K and 60 FPS on the Xbox One X:

Commemorate the 10th anniversary of PlatinumGames’ two most celebrated titles with the Bayonetta & Vanquish remastered dual-pack. 4K graphics available at 60fps on Xbox One X.

Calling Vanquish one of Platinum’s most celebrated titles might be a stretch, as it didn’t fare well commercially upon release, but Shinji Mikami’s take on the third-person shooter has held up well over multiple critical reappraisals over the past decade. Bayonetta, of course, spawned a celebrated sequel and Bayonetta 3 is still in development for the Nintendo Switch.

In 2017, Sega cheekily hinted at Vanquish’s PC port with an update to Bayonetta’s, and earlier this year the PC port for Catherine Classic was teased with updates across Sega’s Steam catalog. Perhaps Sega planned a similar roll-out for these console remasters, only to be foiled by the store listings—we’ll update this post when Sega gives their official confirmation.

Thanks, Gematsu.
