"Bayonetta" developers have scaled up the resolution of the third-person action game by porting it over unto the PC platform. The PC version brings Platinum's classic action game without the flaws inherent to console platforms. The game also comes with 4k support and advanced graphics options to boost.

Multi-console Platformer Gets ported on PC

"Bayonetta" was originally released on the Microsoft Xbox 360 and the Sony PlayStation 3 in early 2010. However, neither version was particularly successful, Metro UK reported. Nintendo then funded a Wii U exclusive sequel in 2014, but "Bayonetta 2" did not sell as expected either.

Recently, Sega decided to port the original "Bayonetta" into a definitive version of the game. Take note that Sega still owns the publishing rights to "Bayonetta." Moreover, Sega is currently on a mission to port more classic console games to PC.

The "Bayonetta" PC gameplay is able to run at a full 60 fps with cutscenes limited to 30 fps. The game has an unlocked resolution that can go up to 4K ultra HD at 3840 x 2160. In addition, there are said to be more technical graphical options than most Western games.

No Controller, No Problem. PC Port Supports Keyboard and Mouse

In other news, "Bayonetta" just launch on Steam with a $19.99 price tag. The game rolled out with advanced graphical settings and 4K support. The VP of Commercial Publishing for SEGA Europe further noted that the game also comes with supports for keyboard and mouse controls in the absence of a controller.

"Bayonetta" PC gamers may also opt for a Japanese voice over. The game also features anti-aliasing, SSAO lighting, anisotropic filtering, scalable texture and shadow quality, among others. It is expected that this is just the beginning of SEGA games being ported unto the PC platform as "Bayonetta" may soon be followed by Vanquish, WCCF Tech reported.
