Following on from the massive success of NieR: Automata, it might come as a surprise to hear Platinum Games is now working on a brand-new IP with a new director.
Regarding the sudden cancellation of Xbox/Windows 10 exclusive 'Scalebound', Platinum Games have issued a short statement.
Following in the footsteps of Phantom Dust and Cry On, Hideki Kamiya's 'Scalebound' is the latest Microsoft Studios-branded Japanese game to get the boot. Cancellation of the project was announced last night.
We’ve been seeing occasional details on Scalebound, the new dragons and headphones game from the folks at Platinum, but it still doesn’t feel like we really know what form the game will take, beyond its focus on Devil May Cry-like stylish combat. Thankfully, today we got a little taste of what partnering with dragons will be like.
