Time's Running Out to Buy the Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle: Launch Edition, Featuring a SteelBook® Case with Brand-New Anniversary Art

 

IRVINE, Calif. - February 18, 2020 - There's no better way to honor the decade milestone of two pulse-pounding, action-packed titles than with the Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle, available starting today for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One!

 

Running at 4K resolution at 60 FPS on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, you'd think you were dreaming when you see both Sam Gideon and Bayonetta in action! Prepare your mental fortitude with our launch trailer.

A quote from Armature Studio:

Armature Studio has partnered with PlatinumGames and Sega of America to port Bayonetta and Vanquish to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles, keeping the stylized, intense action and unique visuals of each game intact while increasing the framerate to 60 FPS, and supporting 4K resolutions on the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro.

As part of porting the game, Armature has updated both games to a modern 64-bit architecture, including the middleware used by the games. Armature worked closely with the original creators to realize their vision for the games on modern hardware, as well as updating each title with visual improvements and polish.

 

A Bewitching Physical Offering

 

Collectors, take note! Those who opt for the physical release of our first-run Launch Edition will get both games packed inside an embossed SteelBook case featuring brand-new cover art produced by Weapons Van and supervised by Bayonetta director Hideki Kamiya and SEGA.

About Bayonetta:

Experience the genesis of the Bayonetta series with the cult classic, original action-adventure game. The tantalizing Umbra Witch rises from the depths after half a millennium in slumber with no recollection of her mysterious past. Immediately thrust into battle, she must vanquish her countless enemies to piece together the truth.

 

Take advantage of Bayonetta's arsenal of skills including shapeshifting into various animal forms, summoning demons with her hair, and exercising her mastery of the bullet arts. Hack, slash, and open fire upon hordes of celestial foes in this wickedly charming action-packed adventure.

 

About Vanquish:

 

The hit sci-fi shooter returns. An overpopulated Earth suffocating under limited resources looks to Providence, the solar-powered space colony for support. When Providence is suddenly taken over by terrorists and its technology used to devastate cities, it's up to a specially trained unit of space marines to reclaim the colony.

 

Equipped with BLADE, the experimental weapon system that can scan, copy, and save up to three existing weapons, DARPA agent Sam Gideon must infiltrate Providence, defeat legions of future-tech foes, and disable the weapons of mass destruction threatening life on Earth.
