Here’s the blurb from the PS Blog post:
Have you broken a controller playing through Bayonetta on Non-Stop ∞ Climax? Spent countless hours perfecting every movement in Vanquish’s infamous Challenge 6? Or are you just fascinated by the idea of controlling a gun-wielding witch or a DARPA agent donning a rocket-propelled Augmented Reaction Suit? Then the Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle is perfect for you.
We know how special Bayonetta and Vanquish are to fans, and they’re an important part of SEGA’s history as well, so we wanted to go big for their 10th anniversary.
That’s why we’re happy to announce that the physical release of the Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle will come in an embossed Steelbook with brand-new cover art for both games produced by Weapons Van, supervised by Bayonetta director Hideki Kamiya and Sega.
Bayonetta plays a lot like Devil May Cry, only you’re in control of the titular, badass demon-slaying witch with her own unique set of moves. The game spawned a entire franchise, with Bayonetta 2 releasing for the Wii U (and later, the Switch) and a third game is currently in development for Nintendo’s hybrid platform.
Vanquish was directed by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami and sadly didn’t get a sequel, but is regarded as one of the best games of the PS3 era.
