Bayonetta And Vanquish Launching On PS4, Xbox One In February

Celebrating 10 years.
Celebrating 10 years. Sega

The Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle has been announced for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The official launch is scheduled for February 18, 2020 and will be available in both physical and digital format for $39.99. The Bundle comes with the original Bayonetta and Vaquish, both remastered for the two platforms in 4K resolution at 60fps.

The release comes as the two games are set to celebrate their 10th anniversaries. To celebrate this in style, both games have entered into a collaboration with Weapons Van. Thus all physical copies of the Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle are going to be offered in an embossed SteelBook featuring brand-new key art for both game. Created especially for the 10th anniversary, the art was made by artist Dan Dussault, with supervision by none other than Bayonetta director Hideki Kamiya, PlatinumGames, and SEGA.

Pre-orders for the bundle are already available today at all major retailers.

For PS4 players, there's another treat in store. For those who prefer to build their digital library, there's going to be two themes available for those who buy the bundle on the PlayStation Store. These are:

  • Bayonetta & Vanquish Theme
    • Available instantly for all digital pre-orders. Not going to be available at or after launch
  • Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Theme
    • Available for a limited time for all pre-orders and purchases up to March 3, 2020, which is two weeks after launch

For those not familiar to both games, Bayonetta is a fast-paced third-person action experience that takes it to the extreme. Here players go against hundreds of angelic foes using a wide range of interchangeable weapons, powerful abilities, and even mystical beasts that are summoned through the main character Bayonetta's incredible hair. Oh yeah, Bayonetta is also a witch. The game was originally released in Japan in October of 2009. A North American and European release followed in January of 2010.

Vanquish, meanwhile, redefined the cover-based third-person shooting genre by introducing elements from action games and beat ‘em ups along with a wide variety of weapons and what are clearly some of the craziest boss fights in gaming. This has resulted in offering an entirely unique experience. Vanquish was released worldwide in October of 2010.
