Vanquish might just be Platinum's next PC port

The surprise release of Bayonetta on PC was a wonderful gift -- both for returning fans and those who have yet to pulverize angels -- but it may only be the start. Someone hold me. I'm feeling faint! Earlier today, a small but conspicuous u...

Sega is teasing something with 8-Bit Bayonetta on Steam
