Sega is teasing something with 8-Bit Bayonetta on Steam

Let’s hope this isn’t wishful thinking

Years ago, Platinum Games toyed with a pixel-art rendition of Bayonetta. It was a cute little gag. But now that simple game has found its way onto Steam as a free-to-play title from Sega, and it’s teasing… something. Something potentially terrific or disastrous, knowing full well tomorrow is April 1.

The game’s Steam achievements are puzzle pieces that form a larger picture of Bayonetta, and some of them contain snippets of a URL. This URL, to be exact — it’s a Sega.com “Coming Soon” page with a not-yet-functional countdown and the image shown at the top of this post. How interesting!

NeoGAF user GrantDaNasty dug through the site’s code and found the string “lastDate: ’04/11/2017 08:00:00′,” suggesting that whatever Sega is leading up to will be unveiled on April 11 at 8:00am Pacific.

I’m trying not to get my hopes up now that April Fools’ Day shenanigans are in effect, but good lord please let this be what it looks like: a PC port of the original Bayonetta.
