Vanquish For Xbox One Appears On Microsoft's Store, Promising A Remaster
The classic Xbox 360/PS3 shooter returns to Xbox One.
It looks like Vanquish is returning to modern consoles, with a listing for an Xbox One version having appeared on the Microsoft Store. The game page lists a February 18, 2020 release date, and promises some upgrades for the game, which originally launched on Xbox 360 and PS3. PlatinumGames, the developer of the original, is also listed as the developer here.
The description listed states that "the hit sci-fi shooter returns," and under "features", it says that the game is "remastered for the first time on Xbox One" and features "4K graphics at 60fps" on Xbox One X. No official announcement has been made as of yet, so it appears that this page has given the impending release of Vanquish on Xbox One up early. Curiously, the game is stylized as 'Vanquish' on this page and as 'VANQUISH' on the game's Xbox 360 page. That version of the game can also be played on Xbox One, thanks to backwards compatibility.
It's unclear whether the game will also come to PS4 and Nintendo Switch, but it's certainly possible, as there's no indication that this release will be exclusive to Microsoft's platform. Vanquish previously came to PC in 2017. PlatinumGames is also currently working on Bayonetta 3, exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
