Bayonetta Released On PC Via Steam With 4K Support
Sega and PlatinumGames release the action game exclusively on Steam.
PlatinumGames’ witchy character action game, Bayonetta, is now available for Windows PC via Steam priced at $19.99, Sega announced today With 4K Support.
The PC port of the 2009 game will feature a wealth of graphics options, Sega said, including resolutions up to 4K and support for 60 frames per second refresh rate. Bayonetta for PC will also feature “anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering, SSAO lighting, scalable texture and shadow quality, and more.” The game also supports keyboard and mouse controls, Sega said.
Bayonetta for PC is available exclusively on Steam, and supports many of the service’s features: Steam achievements, Steam cloud save, trading cards, leaderboards and Big Picture Mode.
PlatinumGames was directly involved in the Windows PC port of Bayonetta, according to Sega, potentially good news for fans of the developer’s action games.
The original Bayonetta was first released in 2009 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek action game tells the story of the eponymous Bayonetta, “the last survivor of an ancient witch clan who keep the balance between light, dark and chaos.” Sega and PlatinumGames later brought the title to Wii U alongside the release of the sequel, Bayonetta 2, in 2014.
Sega has been on a streak of re-releasing console games like The Typing of the Dead and Valkyria Chronicles on PC in recent years. Based on comments from Sega, it sounds like the publisher isn’t stopping with Bayonetta.
“We are dedicated to bringing high-quality, best practice PC conversions of our back catalogue games to our fans, and Bayonetta was a great fit,” said John Clark, senior vice president of commercial publishing for Sega Europe, in a statement. “Bayonetta is one of the most often requested PC conversions of our games, so finally being able to launch it on Steam is fantastic. There’s more to come!”
