Today, PlatinumGames and SEGA released an accolades trailer for their sci-fi action shooter Vanquish, which made its way to PC for the first time just last month.
For those who don’t know, Vanquish was Platinum Game’s fourth title; it was directed by Shinji Mikami of Resident Evil fame, and released on PS3 and Xbox 360 all the way back in October of 2010. The game sold pretty well, but was overshadowed by other popular PlatinumGames releases such as Bayonetta, and had fallen into relative obscurity in recent years.
Shortly after the aforementioned Bayonetta was re-released on PC back in April, the game was updated, and an image related to Vanquish was found in the game’s EXTRAS folder. This led to speculation about a possible PC release of the game, which SEGA proceeded to tease on Twitter before officially announcing it on May 10.
The title released on PC May 25 for $19.99. This version of the game included all of Vanquish’s previously released DLC, 4K support, and a unlocked framerate that allows the game’s action to move faster than ever before.
People who owned Bayonetta on PC also had the opportunity to pre-order the game at a discounted price. Once the game launched, PlatinumGames and SEGA released a developer diary for the game that featured Producer Atsushi Inaba, Enemy Programmer Noriyuki Otani and Producer Takaaki Yamaguchi. You can check that video out here.
The accolades trailer, which comes in at one minute and thirty three seconds, showcases gameplay alongside positive comments about the Vanquish port from people who reviewed it. Players seem to love Vanquish too, as the game currently has a “Very Positive” user rating on Steam based off of 854 reviews. You can check out the game’s Steam Page here.
