PC gamers have been waiting eight years to play Platinum Games' beloved Bayonetta, and now the wait is over.

Thanks to a premature slip-up by Engadget, we can confirm Bayonetta is slashing onto PC via Steam with 4K support and higher-end graphical tweaks. SEGA's "surprise" reveal was supposed to happen at 11AM EST when the countdown timer ends, but the news was leaked out early.

Bayonetta will feature 1080p 60FPS gameplay with "unlocked resolutions up to 4K, anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering, SSAO lighting, scalable texture and shadow quality, and more."

If you buy the game before April 25 you'll get a free upgrade to the Digital Deluxe Edition, which comes with a soundtrack, a digital art book, wallpapers and avatars. Bayonetta is now available for $19.99 on Steam.
