gamescom 2015: Fight as One with Your Dragon in Scalebound

Ready for the next great adventure from critically acclaimed developer PlatinumGames (the studio behind Bayonetta and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance) and renowned game director Hideki Kamiya? Well, you’re in luck: We’ve partnered up with them to launch an exciting new exclusive experience: Scalebound.

In Scalebound, you will experience the journey of a young loner named Drew, who is pulled into the strange, beautiful, and dangerous world of Draconis – where he is bonded to a fearsome and noble dragon, Thuban, the last of his kind. These two lone-wolf heroes, thrown together by fate, must learn to fight as one to defeat the powerful enemies that threaten Draconis, Earth, and a vast universe of parallel worlds.

You’ll explore the beautiful and dangerous world of Draconis, as you and your dragon companion work to defeat legions of enemy soldiers and epic scale beasts. Scalebound’s accessible-yet-deep (and very stylish and over-the-top!) gameplay gives you the power to fluidly chain attacks with your dragon to, creating devastating combos to unleash upon your foes.

You can even customize your winged pal: Choose your favorite dragon shape (winged serpent, four legged tank, and more), and then evolve your companion’s unique abilities and attacks, as well as its appearance.

It’s going to be one epic ride when Scalebound debuts on Xbox One in 2016!
