Sadly the Phantom Dust port is basically the original Xbox game at 1080P with Microtransactions and DLC. They don't have the source code anymore to even remaster it properly. It's a 2003 game running at a higher resolution. It's going to look extremely ugly and feel very dated, it had better not be a full priced release.
The original game running at a higher resolution is fine, as long as its not broken. They apparently made this port via reverse engineering so they could do a "proper remaster."
I don't think it matters if they have the original source code. Its evident they can figure it out if they put the effort (i.e. money).
They updated the online portion of the game to work on X1 while the original Xbox servers are shut down. For those who want to play online, the original version wouldn't work. Also, getting an original copy is expensive.
Are you really entertaining the idea it could be a full price game? Voodoo Vince just released for $15. I think Phantom Dust will be $20.
Whether or not a sequel happens depends on how this does. I hope they put it on Steam because there may be an audience there.
