Bayonetta 2 could have been produced under terms that permanently preclude a port to non-Nintendo platforms, or it could just be a Lego City Undercover situation. I doubt anyone here knows for sure.

That's true, but unlike Lego City Undercover, Nintendo funded Bayonetta 2 fully and even aided in its development.

That being said, crazier things have happened.

Don't limit Bayonetta 3 by supporting the Switch and I might get the originals again on PC.

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...
Lol, they had the proof with Metal Gear Rising years ago.

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

April Fool's was a mistake.
At least this date I make sure to remember so nothing catches me with my pants down, but December 28th, it always fucking gets me. I don't know who thought having a "Día de los inocentes" on December was a good idea, should've just stuck to April.

C'mon Sega, release all of your PG deal games. Bayo, Vanquish, MadWorld and Anarchy Reigns. Hnnngh.

[edit] Holy shit. It's happening...?!

Another does have a continuation and it leads here:

Well shit....PC Port of 1 doesn't seem too far-fetched now. Heck, might even be a chance for SEGA to re-release it on XB1/PS4 as well.

Looks to be a countdown timer based on page source, I thought the fields were an age gate, but they're not editable, apparently it points to day/hour/minute:

<div class="unveil-1">
<div id="countdown">

<div class="days col-lg-4 col-xs-4 col-sm-4">
<div class="digit-top"><span class="digit-time">{dnn}</span></div>
<div class="description-time">{dl}</div>

</div>

<div class="hours col-lg-4 col-xs-4 col-sm-4">
<div class="digit-top"><span class="digit-time">{hnn}</span></div>
<div class="description-time">{hl}</div>
</div>

<div class="minutes col-lg-4 col-xs-4 col-sm-4">
<div class="digit-top"><span class="digit-time">{mnn}</span></div>
<div class="description-time">{ml}</div>

Sega employee: Fans have been complaining for years about our lackluster effort on following through with PC ports.

Sega exec: I know, put that 8bit game on Steam to troll those dumbasses. It'll be brilliant!

Sega employee: Sir I don't think thats such a good idea, there might be backlash.

Sega exec: You wanna keep your job or not? Do it you fool... Troll everyone!

yeah, at least first game is coming. Too much effort for just a prank.

With how well their other games (nier/rising) have done on steam, they'd be stupid not to.

Do you think the Steam version of Bayo1 would have exclusive costumes? Maybe they could have a Chell outfit, with Umbran Portal Kick + the summoning circles being replaced with Portal portals.

Extra costumes and stuff for $40 I'm guessing. BELIEVE!

If they're just trolling us, that's evil. But I'm inclined to believe this is teasing the real deal, to which I can only say fuck yes.

(Hopefully Vanquish is coming as well.)

Nintendo owns Bayonetta 2 outright. WB retained ownership of LCU despite Nintendo publishing it, which is why it's now multiplatform (i.e. Nintendo's publishing contract expired). It's possible that Sega has purchased Bayonetta 2 from Nintendo, but I wouldn't consider it likely.

Bayonetta 2 Sigma on Steam believe.

Could Sega/Platinum add some stuff to Bayo 2 make it a new release?
