Platinum Games announces Xbox One-exclusive action affair Scalebound

Think Devil May Cry with more dragons.

Bayonetta and Vanquish developer Platinum Games has announced a new Xbox One-exclusive action game entitled Scalebound.

Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe creator Hideki Kamiya revealed the project at Microsoft's E3 press conference today.

The game stars a character who looks a bit like DMC's Dante with shorter hair. He has the same cocky mannerisms though, as he flips on a set of headphones to chill to some tunes while dragon slaying. He might even be part dragon himself, as he ends the trailer riding one of the beasts and transforming his skin into scaly armour as he takes on a colossal hydra.

Check out Scalebound's announcement trailer below and tell us what you think of this East-meets-West collaboration.
