You Can Own Vanquish and Bayonetta Together in One Handsome Steelbook Next Year

You Can Own Vanquish and Bayonetta Together in One Handsome Steelbook Next Year

Relive Platinum Games history in 4K.

Sega has confirmed that last week's leak of Bayonetta and Vanquish remasters is real, and they're arriving soon. Two of Platinum Games' earliest hits are coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as a bundle on February 18, 2020.

Sega showcased the bundle in a new trailer, looking back on Bayonetta's witchcraft and Vanquish's killer powerslides. The two will come bundled in a 10th anniversary bundle with a steelbook case, and run at 4K and 60 frames per second on the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X.

While Bayonetta already got a second lease on life with a Nintendo Switch re-release, Vanquish hasn't seen much love outside a PC port in 2017. The futuristic shooter feels like one of Platinum's most interesting relics, and definitely one I'm excited to get back into. Sadly, it doesn't look like it'll be coming to the Switch, at least for right now.

It's a little barebones for a remastered edition, more akin to Capcom's Mega Man and Street Fighter bundles. I'm surprised there's no artbook or any other sort of commemorative included to signify these two games and their place in Platinum Games' history, especially considering how one of them went on to make a guest apperance in Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U.

Platinum Games has been busy in the years since these two games, though. With projects like Nier: Automata and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, it's found a home in creating blockbuster games. Even this year's Astral Chain has been a pretty notable success. Where Vanquish and Bayonetta might have seemed like niche games in their time, now it's preserving the legacy that led to Platinum Games' current success. More games need sick powerslides.
