Platinum Games seems more than excited about their exclusive collaboration with Microsoft on the development of what looks like their next big thing (after Bayonetta 2 for the Wii U of course). 3rd party developer Platinum Games is giving Microsoft their very first next-gen development project exclusively to the Xbox One with ambitions of utilizing the full power of the Xbox One as a cutting-edge console.
President and CEO of Platinum Games promises that “Scalebound will be a game that gives users around the world the ultimate in surprises and smiles.”
According to creative director Hideki Kamiya, “Dragons have a unique power to capture the imagination, and I’ve loved dragons since I was a child. I’ve always wished that I could create a game featuring this magnificent creature; now the time has come for me to realize my dream.”
“I can’t share many details about the game yet, but rest assured that the development team and I are working around the clock so that we can show you more as soon as possible. For now, I ask that you let your imagination run wild while you wait. I promise dragon fans around the world this game will not disappoint.”
Based on the details surrounding the new trailer, Xbox One users will get to play as a favorable protagonist who has somehow been infused with dragon scales as an armored protective shield equipped to do battle with other monolithic creatures. Hopefully sooner than later Platinum Games will be offering up some gameplay footage.
