Bayonetta gets Xbox One backwards compatibility


Have a copy of Bayonetta for the Xbox 360 but worried about upgrading to the Xbox One, or have an Xbox One but neglecting to buy a copy? Good news then, because today Bayonetta is getting Xbox One backwards compatibility along with the games de Blob 2 & Arkanoid Live!, as officially announced on Larry Hryb’s Twitter. This is especially notable for those that lack a Wii U or Xbox360 and want an alternative to play one of the finest games to come out of PlatinumGames, especially since copies that came with Bayonetta 2 are out of print for the former.

Bayonetta has made a recent splash with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS and Bayonetta 2, so if you have an Xbox One and if you’re curious about the game that started this crazy action packed series, give it a shot.

    The original Xbox 360 version was the definite version of the game, with the PS3 edition featuring some screen tearing and other issues.

    I have to wonder how rough the Xbox One emulation of the original hardware will treat the game.

    Luckily, it’ll play just fine and still be awesome regardless.

      IMO I think the WiiU version is the best version

      The Wii U version is the best since it makes minor improvements to stuff like the visuals and includes Nintendo-themed alternate costumes, but the Xbox 360 version is still great on it’s own. PS3 version can shove off though.

      Flare makes a good point on the Wii U version being out of print physically, and I personally think $30 is too much for the digital version.
