Bayonetta and Vanquish are apparently heading to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in a bundle, according to listings spotted on European retailers.
Both action titles by Platinum Games recently received ports for the PC, which makes it very possible that Bayonetta and Vanquish are indeed coming soon to the current-generation consoles.
'Bayonetta' And 'Vanquish' Bundle For PS4, Xbox One
A two-pack containing Bayonetta and Vanquish for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have been discovered on European retailers Alza, Film-Game, and Estelacnesie, driving up the excitement once again for the massively popular action titles.
Both Sega games found success on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, even on the Nintendo Wii U for Bayonetta. Platinum Games, however, recently went a step further and finally released a Bayonetta PC version on Steam in April, with the game upgraded in terms of graphics with 4K support and a refresh rate of 60 frames per second.
With Bayonetta released for the PC, there was clamor for Platinum Games to upgrade all its games and launch them on the platform. The developer was apparently already thinking about that, as a Vanquish PC version, likewise upgraded with 4K support, was rolled out a month later in May.
The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Bayonetta and Vanquish will presumably be based on the recently released PC ports, as Bayonetta is already available on the Xbox One through the console's backward compatibility feature. It is unclear whether the games can be purchased separately for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, though there is the possibility that the digital copies of Bayonetta and Vanquish can be bought on their own while the physical copies will only be two-packs.
Is The 'Bayonetta' And 'Vanquish' Two-Pack Real?
The three European retailers where the listings were spotted are not major ones, and their descriptions of the item featured some grammar issues that make the bundle appear fake. However, even as news of the listings broke out, the retailers have not taken them down, which might mean that they are indeed real.
It would be easier for Sega and Platinum Games to roll out Bayonetta and Vanquish to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One because they already did most of the work in the PC ports. Production costs will also be lessened by rolling out the games as a two-pack.
However, neither Sega nor Platinum Games has released an official announcement for the Bayonetta-Vanquish two-pack, and until then, fans of the two games will simply have to hope that the listings found in the European retailers are real.
