Xbox One owners have plenty of reasons to be cheerful in 2020, as new games galore come to the Microsoft console. Doom Eternal, Cyberpunk 2077 and Watch Dogs have all been announced for the platform, as Microsoft bids farewell to the current-gen in style. As if 2020 wasn’t stacked enough, news has emerged of a shock new Xbox One release for next February.
According to a new leak, Xbox One owners can expect remastered versions of Vanquish and Bayonetta in 2020.
Seemingly releasing individually and as a double pack, the critically-acclaimed Platinum titles will supposedly have a February 18 release date.
The games will feature improved visuals, as well as 4K capabilities and 60 frames-per-second action on Xbox One X.
“Commemorate the 10th anniversary of PlatinumGames’ two most celebrated titles with the Bayonetta & Vanquish remastered dual-pack. 4K graphics available at 60fps on Xbox One X,” reads the official blurb (via True Achievements).
There’s no word on a price or whether the games will come to PS4, although the latter seems like a safe bet.
Vanquish is a highly-rated mech shooter directed by famed Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami.
Unfortunately, the game didn’t sell particularly well, despite its impressive 86% score over on Metacritic.
“The hit sci-fi shooter returns,” reads the official description. “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.”
Bayonetta is the better known of the two games, partly because of the lead character’s involvement in Super Smash Bros.
Directed by Hideki Kamiya – the man behind Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry – the game has a 90% score on Metacritic.
“Experience the genesis of the Bayonetta series with the cult classic, original action-adventure game,” the description reads.
“The tantalising 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.”
