Bayonetta and Sam Gideon are celebrating their 10th anniversary with a special bundle. The games have been remastered and run on 4K. Platinum Games also teamed up with artist Dan Dussault in order to deliver brand-new key art for both titles. The bundle is available in physical and digital form.
PlatinumGames’ classics - Bayonetta and Vanquish will return, come 2020, in a 10th Anniversary Bundle for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The developer teamed up with Weapons Van to create new art for the games: all physical copies of the Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle will come in an embossed SteelBook featuring brand-new key art for both titles.
The artist responsible for the new design goes by the name of Dan Dussault and he made his creations under the watchful eye of Bayonetta director Hideki Kamiya, PlatinumGames, and SEGA.
There are two themes available for the proud owners of the PlayStation 4:
- Bayonetta & Vanquish Theme – available instantly for all digital pre-orders, will not be available at or after launch.
- Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Theme – available for a limited time for all pre-orders and purchases up to 3 March 2020
The bundle will launch on 18 February 2020 and set you back some ₤30.41 ($39.99) in its physical or digital format. The games will sport a remastered look you'll experience in 4K resolution. Pre-orders for the Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are available today through all major retailers.
AltChar doesn't usually condone pre-orders of any kind, but these are games with a cult following and there is 10 years worth of reviews and gameplay videos around to help you decide whether these are worth your money. Even so, pre-purchase at your own risk.
The titular Umbra Witch who is acutely aware of her looks has brought us many hours of fun with her Scarborough Fair set of stylish guns. Bayonetta will also put her witchy powers at your disposal and those include shapeshifting into various animal forms and summoning demons with her hair.
Sam Gideon and you will shoot, slide and duck behind covers on your way to save the Earth from the Order of the Russian Star and their solar energy microwave transmitter.
