Bayonetta is out on Steam today at 16:00PM BST, bringing SEGA and PlatinumGames critically acclaimed action game to PC with 4K support and additional advanced graphics options. It should mean Bayonetta will look better than ever, complete with a higher frame rate.

Of the PlatinumGames roster, Bayonetta is one of the most highly thought of, however the lack of a PC release has always been a sore point. While the Xbox 360 version was decent, the PS3 edition of Bayonetta was plagued with crippling frame rate issues. On PC this should obviously no longer be an issue, letting PC gamers throw the full force of their gaming hardware at the action-packed masterpiece.

That's one game down, one to go, although I perhaps wouldn't get your hopes up for a Bayonetta 2 port. Nintendo helped fund development of the sequel, and based on Nintendo's track record the chances are slim to none it will ever see the light out of day outside of a Nintendo platform.
