Microsoft Expects Xbox One Exclusive Scalebound To Have Worldwide Appeal News  Scalebound

Microsoft is expecting Scalebound to be a popular game worldwide that will appeal to more than just fans of developer PlatinumGames.

DualShockers interviewed Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg and he talked a little bit more about Scalebound. The game is due out next year exclusively for Xbox One.

Greenberg says that the game is an action RPG and he obviously expects fans of PlatinumGames’ previous titles to like this game as well. However, he feels there is potential for Scalebound to “have a broader appeal to folks that maybe haven’t played their games before“. Microsoft is excited to introduce the game to people that may not have played PlatinumGames’ games before.

Action RPG titles are usually more appealing to gamers in Japan and Asia. Microsoft feels there is a global appeal to the game and aims to market it worldwide. He feels this is a game that will “appeal globally, no matter where it’s made“.

Hopefully the Xbox One exclusive finds a big enough audience for it to become popular. The game is looking great, although 2016 is looking like a very crowded year. Not only is the game sharing space with other Xbox One exclusives, but lots of other games too. Microsoft needs to a choose a release date for the game so it avoids something like Final Fantasy XV or Mass Effect Andromeda.

    Flop and sorry they didn’t release on PS4. Japan hopes is a pipe dream Xbox.

  • Fozymandias

    Looks interesting but I doubt anyone will pay attention to it. Being an Xbox One exclusive has now become the kiss of death.

    • wastheman

      *cough* *cough* Rise of the Tomb Raider *cough*

      • kma99

        Its Microsoft own IP why would it be the kiss of death? You think Microsoft should make all of their games multi plats lol.

  • Ocelot forgot his meds

    Not rather play knack and pay to play ps2 games with black bars across half the screen.

  • Gary

    Looks like a good game I’d want to play but I really don’t think it’ll appeal to too many people by releasing it on the Xbox. If they hope it’ll drive Japan sales up it’s not going to happen.

  • Ocelot forgot his meds

    I really hope this game is terrible since I bought a ps4. Right guys ???

    • Guest

      Once again you made no sense

      • Ocelot forgot his meds

            He is being sarcastic because that is what all the PS4 fanboys are saying in this article.

          • Streight Salt

            I see

      • Xpower1spikeX

        It makes a lot of sense, going by every single comment in this artcle.

    • Mr Xrat

      I actually hopes this ends up being good for you, I’d hate for Xgimps to start organising mass suicides over another awful yearly lineup.

      • Ocelot forgot his meds

        I am watching Sonys PSX 2015. I Like the way they moved to Indies right after the broken VR demo. 100 foot robot golf…yesssss ! Bwahahahahahahaga

        • Mr Xrat

          Oh look, the Xgimp changes his name again. That’s rather strange behaviour.

          I’m going to watch the Xbox Experience. Oh wait, there isn’t one. I can replicate it by wiping the dust off my shelves, though. :)

            Nice to see you clean the shelf space you would keep your PS4 games on if it had any, Rscottycuck :)

  • Vincent

    One of the reasons why I got an Xbox One this black friday. Can’t wait!

  • DancingwithPonies

    I’m looking forward to this. Just finished playing Transformers from PlatinumGames, it was fun and showed their skill in making an action game. Another great xbox exclusive hopefully.

  • wastheman

    well everyone at microsoft is full of shit so…..

    • Ocelot forgot his meds

      full of good shit indeed

  • Xpower1spikeX

    Game looks fantastic, glad something new an refreshing still exists. Can’t wait, this is what I was waiting for at PSx ….nothing

    • Mr Xrat

      Another worthless opinion from an Xbox fanboy. :)

      • Xpower1spikeX

        And yet your mad about me liking a game? I think if anything worthless it’s your opinion. Literally!

  • Mr Xrat

    Oh, a niche Japanese game will have worldwide appeal now? Fabulous.

    • PCMR Truth™ #BlockMeIWin

      It will on PC. Unlike the PS4 which is now a COD and Dewritos box. Japanese Publishers are abandoning it every day :)

  • Ear4Muzik

    I know alot of people waiting for this game (Including me) doesn’t mean it will be good but the anticipation is there..
