Vanquish PC Port Now Being Teased By Sega
Oh goodness, yes.
After years and years of fans waiting for it to happen, Bayonetta launched on PC earlier this year at long last- and it was a glorious port, optimized for the platform, and coming with a lot of extras at a cheap price to make up for the long wait. That port, along with the excellent PC port for NieR Automata, has given PC players a thirst for, and confidence in, PC ports for Platinum games.
And it looks like another one of those may be inbound soon- earlier today, the PC version of Bayonetta got updated. The update changed absolutely nothing, unless you dug around in the Extras menu, where you found… a 22kb file, which was an icon from Vanquish, Platinum’s cult hit third person shooter, and Shinji Mikami’s last game with the studio.
If this teasing is hinting at something – and Platinum has stated its intention to bring its games to PC before – then we may be looking at a Vanquish port for PC far sooner than we expected. And honestly, given just how well suited to PC Vanquish seems, I hope to goodness this teasing amounts to something, and soon.
