Scalebound Multiplayer Shown, Coming in 2017


PlatinumGames are very busy folks. They just released Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutants In Manhattan and Star Fox Zero. Their big game still in development is Scalebound, the Xbox One exclusive title headed by Hideki Kamiya.

Last seen in last year’s E3, Scalebound showed some of its Character Action vibes, a Platinum signature, and some RPG elements. This year, Kamiya showed what is “the biggest boss Platinum has made”, a giant crab spider thing. If you think protagonist Drew’s dragon companion is huge, then compare that to the boss.

Interestingly, the battle was done in co-op, most likely online co-op. Multiple Drews and dragons were seen taking down the crab spider.

If you think about it, Transformers Devastation last year had Platinum tried doing some RPG and loot system whereas TMNT Mutants in Manhattan had Platinum toying with online co-op. So everything is building up to Scalebound, then?

Scalebound is still set to be released sometime in 2017.
