‘Vanquish’ and ‘Bayonetta’ are coming to the Xbox One.
This follows the PC release of Vanquish a few years back, that was also entirely excellent with it, so to bring these games back to current-gen consoles is great news.
For those that played these games the first time around on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, you will know that they are fantastic games. So to have them readily available again on modern consoles like the Xbox One is great news.
While it hasn’t been announced yet, I reckon it will be likely that we will see these Vanquish and Bayonetta remasters on the PlayStation 4 at some point.
If you are not familiar with games like Bayonetta and Vanquish, Bayonetta was a spiritual continuation to the original Devil May Cry games on the PlayStation 2. However, the combat system and overall functional intricacy was massively increased compared to Devil May Cry. Understandably, gamers relished what Bayonetta had to offer, which is why it has endured surprisingly well.
With Vanquish though, that was a more traditional third-person shooter with cover mechanics. What made Vanquish stand out though was its knee sliding into slow-motion combat. The mecha designs, by Shinji Usui and inspired by the classic anime Casshern, were also really quite impressive as well.
So for those that have missed out on Bayonetta and Vanquish, then it looks like these remasters on Xbox One have you covered. Though we still don’t know when they will be released.
