There were rumours, but many didn’t dare to believe.
Turns out they were true, Microsoft is bringing a new Phantom Dust to the Xbox One. It’s pitched as a relaunch in the same way Killer Instinct was, meaning that it will probably be a reboot rather than a sequel.
Phantom Dust was a cult favourite on the original Xbox, so this announcement will win Microsoft a lot of new supporters. It’s a great treat for the hardcore and another sign that Microsoft is really focusing on the games this year.
So far we know very little about the new Phantom Dust. The CG trailer was cool looking and pretty well done, but it didn’t show much. Consider this a tease and an acknowledgement, but rest assured fans… Phantom Dust has returned!
