PlatinumGames has an announcement to share with the world.

Our newest title was just announced at E3, the biggest game show in the industry, currently underway in Los Angeles.

It is Scalebound for Xbox One.

This is a title of firsts for us at PlatinumGames: our first title on the Xbox One and our first title as a developer in partnership with Microsoft.

Our motto at PlatinumGames is to continue making games in Japan for gamers around the world. We are incredibly grateful for this excellent opportunity to work on a project with a publisher from the US, Microsoft, and we are very pleased to have made this announcement together.

I want gamers to know that PlatinumGames is taking on the challenge presented by the current generation and will use the full power of the Xbox One as a cutting-edge console. I promise that Scalebound will be a game that gives users around the world the ultimate in surprises and smiles.

We can’t show you very much yet, so please look forward to more information and the eventual release of the game!

Thank you very much for your continued support for PlatinumGames.

This is Hideki Kamiya, creative director at PlatinumGames.

The day has finally come that I can announce my new project to everyone.

I’ve created many original titles over the course of my career. Now I have a great opportunity to launch a new project with a new partner, and I’m excited to bring you a brand new game experience once again.

The focus of my new game is the gigantic beast that reigns over the fantasy genre: the dragon. Dragons have a unique power to capture the imagination, and I’ve loved dragons since I was a child. I’ve always wished that I could create a game featuring this magnificent creature; now the time has come for me to realize my dream.

I can’t share many details about the game yet, but rest assured that the development team and I are working around the clock so that we can show you more as soon as possible. For now, I ask that you let your imagination run wild while you wait.

I promise dragon fans around the world: this game will not disappoint. See you soon,

Hideki Kamiya (@pg_kamiya)
Director, Scalebound


Dragons have lived in our fantasies for centuries. They are a common thread that weave between cultures and eras, linking us together under wings and flame; fear and awe.

Scalebound is project that strives to live up to these ideals. A Japanese and American team working together to create the dragon game we’ve always dreamed of, but never gotten to play. Together, we can create something that pushes our team, and the action genre, to new heights.

Our team considers it an honor to take up this challenge. Knowing how many of us have wanted this game forever, I can’t imagine how many of you have wanted the same thing. It’s going to be a wild ride and we can’t wait to take it with you.

Super excité! Finalement une bonne raison pour me procurer une Xbox One! Merci P*!!!

Hopefully we can have different dragon skins… customizable dragons sounds awesome to me! I don't mean like a robot dragon but more organic textures would be cool. Definitely a preorder for me.

Gasa Posted on June 10, 2014 at 12:49 pm

I just noticed there are other riders on those other dragons. I this going to be a multi=player hunting game where you ride monsters to fight other monsters!?

I KNEW IT! This will be another innovation! Just like Vanquish and MGR!
Thank you Platinum Games for giving me a reason to buy Xbox One!

I'm still waiting to see gameplay of this one, but this (plus Sunset Overdrive) seem set to sell me on a Xbox One.

It's gonna be a long wait for this. I hope we get some good BTS along the way. Sooner rather than later.

You never disappoint, Platinum Games!

Game looks amazing but I noticed in the reading content that Platinum wants to brings smiles to its players make a copy for 360. That will create a lot more smiles and more money in your pockets everyone wins.
