SEGA releases Bayonetta (8-bit) on Steam

Bronetta

Ask me about the moon landing or the temperature at which jet fuel burns. You may be surprised at what you learn.

Whattttt??? This is a cruel troll if it doesn't lead to the release of Bayonetta 1 and 2 on Steam.

Please don't be an April Fool's joke because this is like the worst thing ever lol.

It makes for a nice April Fool's announcement, and I wouldn't take this as any form of confirmation, but I have to imagine SEGA's been running the numbers, to see how much it would cost to get a proper port going and what the returns would be.


...Never say Never.

I hope this is a tease for bayo 1 pc port.

(Bayo 2 probably is never happening)

This has to be a tease... look at the achievements

The "Features" section makes me think that it's a humorous precursor to the actual game.

LMAO. Amazing.

Would absolutely buy the third time if there was a DMC4SE'esque remaster with Jeanne (or just the same goddamn game again) for currentgen platforms.

Probably. If NieR was able to reach better numbers, I'm sure Bayonetta could go further with proper marketing, it already has a somewhat established fanbase. Still, I don't think we'll see Bayo 2 in a non-Nintendo platform any time soon, regrettably.

wouldn't be at all surprised to see a version of Bayonetta show up

Bayonetta 2 is out of the question, though

What in the name of fuck is the point of this. What is it promoting?

April Fool's was a mistake.

If this is a sign of an imminent announcement of Bayonetta on PC, I'll take back all the nasty shit I said about Sega.

If not Sega can just go rot in Hell.

Sure. Doesn't mean they can't strike a deal for a PC-only release like they did with Sonic Lost World. Not that I think it will happen, but it is hardly impossible.

Sega published Sonic: Lost World on Wii U (though Nintendo handled those duties in EU). And Nintendo never owned that game.

If Bayonetta 2 comes to PC, it'll be because Nintendo sold the rights to that game to Sega.

mind you, the game description is literally

SEGA’s favourite Umbran Witch climaxes her way onto PC! Thrill to her signature beehive do in 8-bit pixelated glory! Jump! Shoot! Score! Being bad never felt so retro.

If this is not a tease, either SEGA went insane or Atlus just did a coup.

Everyone... and I mean EVERYONE download this and tell your friends to too...

They've probably been looking at Nier's sales and thinking that Steam users are wanting excellent action games.. so now is the time to bring it. Gauging that interest...

Wait, why does the "In The Face" achievement icon have an URL in it?



(Doesn't seem to go anywhere, and no other image seems to have a continuation of such URL, so... on the other hand, unlike my avatar suggests, I am not very good at spotting those things.)
