A Quote from Weapons Van on the Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle Collaboration: “This was a dream project for us at Weapons Van and we cannot thank SEGA & PlatinumGames enough for this opportunity to apply our art direction to the Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle covers. We absolutely love both titles and handpicked Dan Dussault because we knew he could knock it out of the park with his attention to detail and his ability to capture motion in his art.”

Experience the genesis of the Bayonetta series with the cult classic, original action-adventure game. The tantalizing Umbra Witch rises from the depths after half a millennium in slumber with no recollection of her mysterious past. Immediately thrust into battle, she must vanquish her countless enemies to piece together the truth. Take advantage of Bayonetta’s arsenal of skills including shapeshifting into various animal forms, summoning demons with her hair, and exercising her mastery of the bullet arts. Hack, slash, and open fire upon hordes of celestial foes in this wickedly charming action-packed adventure.
The hit sci-fi shooter returns. An overpopulated Earth suffocating under limited resources looks to Providence, the solar-powered space colony for support. When Providence is suddenly taken over by a mutinous group and its technology used to devastate cities, it’s up to a specially trained unit of space marines to reclaim the colony. Equipped with BLADE, the experimental weapon system that can scan, copy, and save up to three existing weapons, DARPA agent Sam Gideon must infiltrate Providence, defeat legions of future-tech foes, and disable the energy transmitter threatening life on Earth.
Sold? You’ll be able to tear through countless hordes of enemies in two of gaming’s most celebrated and stylish action games as the middle of February 2020 rolls into play. With both Bayonetta and Vanquish remastered in 4K resolution at 60fps on Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro for the first time, there should be no reason to not suit up and get ready to dance with the Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle.
