Sega has officially released a PC port on Steam for popular third-person action title Bayonetta. The reveal came as the result of a countdown which the developer’s posted on their site a week ago. A series of clues had led many to speculate that a PC port of the game was in the works, but it was only as the timer ended that the release became official!
On April fool’s day, Sega released an 8-bit version of Bayonetta on Steam. While some fans of the franchise passed this information off as simply being a gimmick, it seems that this was part of a larger marketing scheme set to bring the once console-only title over to PC.
A copy of Bayonetta will currently set you back £14.99 and can be purchased through the game’s Steam page. The PC port of the title will also consider a multitude of graphical options, allowing players to run the game at 60fps over a range of resolutions including 4K.
Through its Steam release, fans of the franchise should also note that the PC port of Bayonetta will incorporate Steam Achievements, cloud saving and trading cards as is the case for most games released across the platform.
Bayonetta was originally released in 2009 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with a version coming out for WiiU in 2014 alongside its sequel Bayonetta 2.
