Rumor: Scalebound resurrected as a Switch exclusive (Updated)

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Rumor: Scalebound resurrected as a Switch exclusive (Updated)

I think the "report" in the title should be changed to "rumor". This appears to be speculative at best.



Hopefully this is just a rumor and nothing else. Scalebound just looked less and less good with each trailer they released. I don't think the significant decrease in visuals would make it more appealing either...



I think this tweet sums it up best, in case this is true



But in all seriousness as much as I would like to be this game that Nintendo is reviving, I seriously doubt it. The frame rate was pretty rough even on the Xbox One and would require (no pun intended) some serious scale-down in order to run on the Switch.



That would be quite the embarrassment for MS if this ends up happening. A multi billion dollar company unable to hold on to its game, just for a much smaller multi billion dollar company to take it.



imo the product would inevitably be compared to the X1 footage and features, making this a pretty questionable move (if true)

Lol.

Anyways, yeah I don't believe in this at all, though I'd be glad if I was wrong.

More like Nintendo and Platinum would have an even bigger L after Microsoft's lawyers finished with them.  

If Microsoft owns the IP then that's not going to happen unless Microsoft agrees to sell it.  Even then, why?  It's not like it's an IP that's worth anything.  Way smarter to just make something like Scalebound but with different details.  

Actually, from what I remember of the trailers, it would probably be smarter to not make something like that.  It never looked good.  



MS has been one of the best developers on the Switch so far.



All I'm going to say is: No.



Interesting, Alanah Pearce (former IGN writer and currently works for Rooster Teeth) just tweeted this.
