8-B it Bayonetta, formerly known as Angel Land, is an 8-bit style action/shooter game for web browsers, and available for download on Steam, based on the Bayonetta franchise.

The game features simplistic gameplay that uses one key for jumping and one for attack. Bayonetta, as the player character, stands at the left side of the screen while ground and aerial enemies slowly move towards her. Bayonetta cannot move, and the objective is to kill as many enemies as possible before they reach her. The score that players receive can be shared on Twitter. A game just for fun.

Availability

It appears on the 404 page of Platinum Games' website.

On March 31st, 2017 Angel Land was uploaded to Steam by PlatinumGames, which players can now download for free to play when ever they wish.

BAYONETTA - Angel Land

Angel Land in its original form

Angel Land was initially announced announced on Platinum's BAYO Blog in 2010. It announced the decision to expand the Bayonetta series into 2D with a new game produced by Yusuke Hashimoto and directed by Hideki Kamiya. A video on the official Platinum YouTube channel showed an 8-bit platformer game featuring Bayonetta fighting enemies, complete with features such as Witch Time. The blog post stated the game would be published by SEGA before finally confirming that it was an April Fools' joke.

On February 2nd 2015, Platinum employee JP Kellams tweeted that the studio had produced a new game, posting the URL leading to the 404 page on the Platinum website which contained the 'new' version of Angel Land.

On March 31th 2017, the game was released on Steam, as a April Fools joke. This was the first game of Bayonetta released on PC. A few days ago the release, the game was removed from Steam.

Trivia

  • The URL for Angel Land originally posted by Kellams includes the keyword taipei. This is assumed to be a joke about the Taipei Games Show 2015, where a sequel to Metal Gear Rising: Revengence, another game by Platinum Games, was supposedly teased. With the page leading to a 404 error, it is not clear if Kellams was poking fun at the false rumor or if he was further teasing the existence of the game.
