This is a blast from the past! It looks like a Vanquish remaster is on the way early next year. The sci-fi shooter has somewhat of a cult following and this news sure comes as a surprise. The remaster, originally developed by Platinum Games is due out February 18, 2020.
UPDATE 2: SEGA have now confirmed both remasters and the bundle, to launch on February 18 2020. PS4 Pro and Xbox One X will run the games at 4K 60 FPS. The physical edition will come with an awesome cross over steelbook.
Here’s the accompanying announcement trailer!

UPDATE: A Bayonetta Remaster has also appeared on the Microsoft Store with the same release date! You can also get the two in a bundle.
Here’s the Microsoft Store description:
Experience the genesis of the Bayonetta series with the cult classic, original action-adventure game. The tantalizing Umbra Witch rises from the depths after half a millenium in slumber with no recollection of her mysterious past. Immediately thrust into battle, she must vanquish her countless enemies to piece together the truth.
Take advantage of Bayonetta’s arsenal of skills including shapeshifting into various animal forms, summoning demons with her hair, and exercising her mastery of the bullet arts. Hack, slash, and open fire upon hordes of celestial foes in this wickedly charming action-packed adventure.
We’ve been blessed with another leak today, this time it’s for a Vanquish remaster! The game directed by the legendary Shinji Mikami has appeared on the Microsoft Store with a release date of February 18, 2020 attached.
We don’t have too many more details right now but here’s the description from the Microsoft Store:
The hit sci-fi shooter returns. 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.
Equipped with BLADE, the experimental weapon system that can scan, copy, and save up to three existing weapons, space DARPA agent Sam Gideon must infiltrate Providence, defeat legions of future-tech foes, and disable the energy transmitter threatening life on Earth.
4K graphics at 60 frames per second available for Xbox One X.
Remastered for the first time on Xbox One.
