Bayonetta up-close screenshot

On April 1st SEGA decided to be a bit cheeky and release a teaser website for the PC version of Bayonetta. There was no announcement, no information, and no explanation on whether this is all an elaborate April Fools' joke or something serious. The only thing SEGA showed was a countdown timer with nine days remaining, something I assumed would herald an announcement for the PC port's release date.

Well, there sure was an announcement, but I can't say I expected SEGA to just straight up release Bayonetta on Steam without so much as a peep. But the good news doesn't end there, however, as apparently the PC port of Bayonetta is pretty damn good, as evident by its currently overwhelmingly positive rating on Steam.

It is also worth mentioning that some people on Steam are reporting crippling performance issues, so if you end up buying Bayonetta only to find it nearly unplayable, I would recommend taking full advantage of Steam's 2-hour refund policy. Once the developers patch all of the issues away you can always purchase it again and continue from where you left off, so there really is no reason not do it if you're having troubles.

And finally, if you have no idea what Bayonetta is even all about, here's the recently posted PC launch trailer. It should give you a good idea of the gameplay style, the tone, and what the PC version looks like. Enjoy!
