Oh Hell Yeah Vanquish Is Getting Remastered (And Bayonetta Too)

Sega will next year be remastering two of PlatinumGames’ best releases—Bayonetta and Vanquish—and bringing them to the PS4 and Xbox One.

Bayonetta, cool, we all know Bayonetta, but fuck yeah Vanquish is back! The cult classic shooter kinda split opinions at release in 2010, but as its 2017 release on PC showed, its slippy-slidey gunplay, unrelenting pace, and over-the-top action sequences are as good now as they were back in the day.

The games are being bundled and sold together in the same box, and will be released on February 18, 2020.

I really feel like they can’t call this kind of thing a remaster, all they’re doing is putting it on the newer console and having it run at the resolution the console is capable of, they’re not putting any extra work into making the game look better. Sure there’s some work involved in porting it over just to make it work, but running at a higher resolution is not much more work.
