Admit it, you fell for a couple of the April Fools’ day gaming news stories. Maybe you fell for the Geforce GTX G-Assistant plug-in player assist module for the lazy and/or inept gamer. Maybe you fell for the heartbreakingly untrue alliance between Nintendo and Sega called Dream Stream which would have allowed Switch owners to stream HD remasters of past Dreamcast titles. Not gonna lie, I fell for that one. (God I miss Sega hardware). Through all the fake news that was April Fools’ Day, one story seems to be more than meets the eye. Bayonetta is on the return.
On April 1, Sega released a playable 8-bit version of Bayonetta on Steam, which linked to a website with a countdown timer and a very dim background image of a strapped and leggy protagonist with a flowing red scarf. The timer is set to go off on April 11, which could lead to a major announcement by Sega. The last Bayonetta game was released on the Wii U in 2014.
Speculation is rampant but the gaming world could see a new Bayonetta game on the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and maybe even the Switch.
