Phantom Dust Remaster Is Out Tomorrow On Xbox One And Windows 10, For Free
Phantom Dust is one interesting Xbox game. It’s an action game with deck-building and shooting mechanics, released in 2005 (2004 in Japan) made in-house by Microsoft Game Studios and led by Panzer Dragoon director Yukio Futatsugi.
In 2014, Microsoft formally announced a reboot of this long-forgotten IP led by Darkside Studios. However, by 2016 the reboot has been canned. Microsoft have been making hard decisions on cancelling their exclusive games as of late, including the Platinum’s Scalebound.
However, a remaster of the original game was still in the works, and the good news is it’s going to be out. Tomorrow, in particular.
Xbox’s Aaron Greenberg announced it via a tweet, and also mentions that it will be completely free.

With the Xbox One (and Windows 10) not having as much ground-breaking exclusives as the other camps have been this year, they could use any game they can. Giving it out for free seems to be a goodwill gesture for fans after the tumultuous development of the reboot that did not end well. So consider this a free game alert as well.
Expect to see Phantom Dust hitting the Windows Store and Xbox Marketplace as early as tomorrow.
