That 8-bit tease for April Fool's Day really did lead to something bigger.

PlatinumGames and Sega had a little fun with everyone on April Fool's Day with the release of an 8-bit version of Bayonetta on Steam. Inside the achievements was a link to a website with a countdown timer set for today. Well, surprise! Bayonetta has been remastered, and is now out on Steam.

Bayonetta, the pistol-wielding librarian-looking witch with hair that a holodeck would love, now can be played in full 4K resolution and full 60 frames per second. It offers keyboard and mouse control, and supports Steam achievements, Steam cloud save, trading
cards, leader boards, and big picture mode. It is an upgrade of the original PS3 and Xbox 360 version released in 2009.

The Digital Deluxe Edition is available and the Bayonetta standard edition cost $19.99 until April 25. It comes with a soundtrack sampler, digital art book, and exclusive wallpapers and avatars.

“We are dedicated to bringing high-quality, best practice PC conversions of our back catalogue games to our fans, and Bayonetta was a great fit.” said John Clark, Senior Vice President of Commercial Publishing for SEGA Europe. “Bayonetta is one of the most often requested PC conversions of our games, so finally being able to launch it on Steam is fantastic. There’s more to come!”

Bayonetta is probably the highest profile remaster that Sega has brought back to date. Previously, it has converted and released Typing of the Dead, Valkyria Chronicles, and the SEGA Mega Drive Collection on Steam.

      I am more than a little excited by the "more to come" bit. Yakuza? Vanquish? Valkyria Chronicles 2 and 3? Afterburn Climax? Dynamite Deka Collection? Dragon Force I and II? God damn Panzer Dragoon Saga???

        Lol damn I wish there was more to go on, I feel like there's an equal chance that it could be Vanquish or Yakuza.

        YES ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ :) !

        Man if all those titles would come over to the PC all pimped out like Bayonetta or as is I be in heaven.

        They need to bring Bayonetta 2 to the PC as well.

        I personally love Panzer Dragoon Orta that one needs to come tot he PC as well. Also Jet Set Future, I am sure there are more :)

        What Sega really needs to do is make a epic new open world Panzer Dragoon game like Zelda Breath of the Wild!!!!! Can you imagine!?

        I have to admit when I work up today and saw: "Bayonetta PC Remaster Hits Steam Today" I almost lost it, so damn cool.

          I really want to play this again in a resolution higher than 1024x720+FXAA. More than 30fps would be cool too.

            I had to stop playing on the ps3 because of the super low resolution, I can't see shit and I had a hunch it'd come to pc someday

        Wait hold on. Do you think there's a possibility they might be talking about JSRF being released on PC? Is that tied up under any other company or does Sega hold the rights to the game?

      Somewhere, in the dark corners of this world, archvile is driving in his Bayonetta themed car with a smile on his face.
