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.

Yeah, that really took away from the game.

This rumor is bunk. Microsoft owns the copyright

Plus Nintendo has nothing to gain by resurrecting this dead game when they could have Platinum make a new game like Astral Chain that doesn’t have any of the preestablished baggage

Their isn't any pre-established baggage for Switch owners.  What do most of us care if MS screwed up?



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

That would be crazy, and would also mean that Platinum is working on three different Switch games.



That cant be real.... poor Xbox.

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

^ So much that.

Drop the forced multiplayer aspect that was giveing them issues, and just make a kickarse single player rpg.


MS forced them into makeing it co-op multiplayer focused really late in the developement cycle, and was one of the issues  that put them behinde in developement. Then MS cut funding, when they complained.

Id love to see it just turn out as a awesome single player game, exclusive to Switch that does well.
Maybe put it on Playstation 4 too? Just leave it off the xbox platform to spite them.

Even if this rumor turns out to be a load of bull, between this, Astral Chain, and Bayonetta 3, Nintendo might as well just buy Platinum at this point.

Huh, RGT 85 suggested he'd heard something about Scalebound being the rumored dead and buried game months ago this morning.  Be interesting if he had the scoop since I never really considered him an insider source.

10:34 if you want to skip to it.

As for the game itself.  I suppose anything is possible.  Who knows really what legal entanglements there are, but presumably they would have been ironed out before production was restarted.



Interesting...



MS owns the copyright. I would like to see a scalebound inspired game though,

The trademark was apparently abandoned.
