At their E3 press conference Microsoft revealed Scalebound, an Xbox One exclusive developed by Platinum Games. The trailer was entirely CG and showed a blonde hero who looked a bit like Dante running from a dragon. He then puts on headphones which lets him enable some sort of crazy armor. The game is directed by Hideki Kamiya, who has been the director on Devil May Cry and Bayonetta. Microsoft’s quick press blurb mentions Scalebound transports players to a distant, hostile world so it’s possible the character in the trailer could be another hero of the “normal guy transported to fantasy world and made into a powerful hero” style. Since Platinum is developing, I’m wondering if we might see more of the game at this year’s Tokyo Game Show.
