You can always rely on Platinum Games to ride in and save the day. Whether rescuing a doomed Metal Gear Solid tie-in or bringing the epic to Wii U, they've cemented their reputations as heroes for hire. So long as you can afford them.
Phil Spencer clearly could, because as we predicted, Microsoft has dug deep and secured their services with a brand new IP exclusive to the Xbox One. Scalebound is the name, and by the looks of things, it's set to be a mash-up of Devil May Cry, Dragon's Dogma and Monster Hunter.
No gameplay yet, but with Platinum and Viewtiful Joe designer/Okami artist/The Wonderful 101 creator/legend-in-residence Hideki Kamiya on the case, expect both the sublime and ridiculous!
