Rumor: Scalebound resurrected as a Switch exclusive (Updated)

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

Oh sweet Jesus I hope this is true. This was one of the biggest things that made me jealous of XBO owners, and then it was cancelled. I'd love to see it become another gem of a Platinum title saved from the trash by Nintendo. If this is true and it goes on to sell well, Nintendo should just buy Platinum already.

Edit: Lol, I just realized the title says Report, not Rumor. I read it as Rumor at first. Well I'd still call it a rumor. I don't care how good these sources are, anything this big I want to hear straight from the big N officially, or from Platinum.



I'm cool with that as long as it will be closer to the original game we saw minus the awkward multiplayer.



If this is true, how much longer until Nintendo just buys Platinum?



Man I hope this goes through. Same with some of the other Mistwalker projects.

"In video game terms, RPGs are games that involve a form of separate battles taking place with a specialized battle system and the use of a system that increases your power through a form of points.

Sure, what you say is the definition, but the connotation of RPGs is what they are in video games." - dtewi

If this is true, I wouldn't shock if the 4 player co-op gets scrapped. That seemed more like a Microsoft idea rather then Platinum's.



Pretty big if true, doubt it though. MS would have to actually sell or demand something else from Nintendo and would either party want that

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...

That's because MS made changes to the game for a start it was never meant to be multiplayer that is something MS forced.



Alanah Pearce is also saying the same thing(Ex IGN journalist)



For those saying trademark =! copyright, that is true, but not in the way you think. A trademark is a type of IP protection, like a copyright, but they protect different things. In this case (or the case for video games in general), the trademark owner is the property owner of the brand name 'Scalebound', and thus, it cannot be used anywhere without that owner's permission.

Scalebound-to-Switch exclusive is still very much a rumor though, so I wouldn't take anything about that as fact yet.

Edit: Microsoft abandoned the trademark, so it remains to be seen what's happening with it.

Apparently MS didn't renew the copyright which means the Scalebound name can be used, this would be interesting because MS forced changes on the project to the point it ended up very different to its original visi this ironically means that if true they could just make the game as they originally intended and it wouldn't infringe on the trademark MS hold.

Edit: It seems the trademark has been abandoned by MS.
