2 History

The game was made available for free on Steam on 31 March 2017, possibly to time it with April Fools day. It was a modified version of the HTML5 original, released as a teaser for the upcoming Steam port of Bayonetta. The game now had two separate fire buttons each having a limit on how many bullets are allowed on the screen. Steam Achievements were added, the icons of which made up a jigsaw puzzle of a picture of Bayonetta with a link to the teaser site drawn on it. The teaser site was a countdown toward 11 April 2017.[4] The store page was removed from Steam on 11 April 2017 when the main Bayonetta game came out on the platform. However, like all free games on Steam with a store page removed, one can still make Steam download the game with a simple command.

SEGA’s favourite Umbran Witch climaxes her way onto PC! Thrill to her signature beehive do in 8-bit pixelated glory! Jump! Shoot! Score! Being bad never felt so retro.
