Originally launching in the west back in 2010, Bayonetta has finally made its way to the PC, only a mere 7 years late. The game is now available on Steam and is playable in 60fps with 4k HD resolution.
For any PC gamers who have never been able to play the classic game, this is most certainly good news, although a controller is still recommended.
Whilst the original Bayonetta may now be available, I wouldn’t hold any hope for its sequel to also make its way to the PC. This is because Bayonetta 2 was a Nintendo published game, who tend to keep their IPs closed off to other platforms.
In an interview with PC Gamer, a spokesperson from Platinum Games stated that:
“We’ve always had a positive stance towards porting our titles to PC, but the decisions as to which platforms we release our games on, and which platforms are the main focus for the games we make are largely made by the publishers, so this is not something we can decide on our own. However, most third party publishers nowadays realize the PC should not be ignored, so I believe we should be able to become more actively involved in the PC market from here on out.”
Does this mean we may one day see more Platinum ports heading to the PC? I hope so.
