Is there anything in life that can't be solved by pointing Platinum Games at it? Probably lots of things - neither Revengeance nor Anarchy Reigns qualify as all-time classics, and the Osaka-based developer has yet to produce a seriously big seller on Xbox. Still, I'll admit to being tantalised by the thought of a Kameo reboot with Hideki Kamiya at the helm.
Microsoft's Head of Xbox Phil Spencer is struck by the idea, too.
@MAKd3MANE I haven't talked to Kamiya-san about Kameo, he's kind of busy on Scalebound right now. Interesting idea.— Phil Spencer (@XboxP3) June 16, 2014
He's pretty stoked about working with Platinum in general.
@TheRazorRex @bmuny101 Getting to work with @platinumgames, for me, will be a highlight of XBOX One.— Phil Spencer (@XboxP3) June 16, 2014
Created by Rare, Kameo: Elements of Power was an action-platformer for Xbox 360 in which an elf shape-shifter battles an Orc-style army. Images of a canned sequel emerged online in 2011. It's one of 11 Microsoft-owned IPs we think deserves a second shot.
New to Scalebound? Based on the E3 trailer, below, it's an action game with co-op in which warrior-mages do battle with/while riding massive, colour-coded dragons. Think Panzer Dragoon meets Titanfall. Works for us.
The game is one of our most-anticipated Xbox One exclusives.
