Hideki Kamiya wants to make sure you get the most value when playing Scalebound.
Platinum Games’ Scalebound has been one of the biggest topics of Gamescom 2015, which is no easy feat considering all the games that were showcased. While Xbox division boss Phil Spencer promised it would be a true AAA title, director Hideki Kamiya is going a step further and ensuring that the open world action RPG will show off what the Xbox One is capable of.
In conversation with Metro, Kamiya said, “So in terms of, say, Scalebound, which is an exclusive title for Xbox One, my ultimate goal and mission is that this will help appeal to, and also heighten the value, of not just my game but also the console, and show the power of what Xbox One can do.”
And despite the pedigree that Platinum Games has, Kamiya is still working hard to deliver for both the players and Microsoft.
“Towards the players, my commitment and my promise to them is that you’re buying a game that we created and you’re paying for it. I need to make sure that you get the value, and hopefully even more, for the amount that you’ve paid. So I think that very simply fact is what keeps us going, because our partners see the commitment that we put into the games that we’re making.”
Scalebound is currently set to release in Holiday 2016. Thoughts on Kamiya’s statements? Let us know below.
