If you enjoy hack and slash games, then you’ve probably experienced a Bayonetta game at some point. These games feature over the top action and addicting gameplay. If you enjoy the original, then you’ll be happy to know that PlatinumGames is making a remastered version featuring 4K. This news comes from Sega, the publisher.

The remastered version will be available on both the Xbox One and PS4. That’s amazing news if you’re a console gamer because the original Bayonetta revolutionized the hack and slash space in many ways. As as character, Bayonetta is as viscous as they come for heroines. She may look charming and beautiful, but don’t let these stunning looks detract from her masterful combat skills. She can put together stellar combinations in rapid succession.

If you’re not familiar with the original game, the story picks up with utter chaos ensuing between the forces of good and evil. Bayonetta — the last of her witch clan — is forced to confront these apocalyptic times in hopes of balancing out the light and dark. The visuals of the original are already amazing, and it will be intriguing to see how much better they can get in a remastered version.

Bayonetta is renowned for its stylish action. You would be hard-pressed to find a more visually pleasing game. The color palette of the various actions you perform will win you over right away. You’ll also love the bevy of weapons that Bayonetta has access to and will unlock the further along she gets in this action-packed journey.

Since the combat system is very intuitive and fluid, you don’t need to have played a Bayonetta game to have success with this remastered version. You can pick up the controls and feel right at home.

This is an incredible announcement from Sega. PC users were treated to the original back in 2017, and now it’s time for console gamers to see what a remastered version has to offer.

To celebrate the game’s 10th year anniversary, Sega put out an official announcement trailer. This remastered version of Bayonetta can be purchased as a standalone title or a package deal that also includes Vanquish. That’s a pretty impressive package you won’t want to pass up on, especially if you like games with a ton of personality and addicting gameplay.

Fans will probably be flocking to this offering, but even if you’re unfamiliar with the series, the original Bayonetta is worth the price of admission.
