You can finally ride some dragons next year

Platinum Games will release Scalebound for both Xbox One and Windows 10 next year, it announced during Microsoft's E3 press conference today.

Director Hideki Kamiya debuted a new co-op demo during the event, showing four players taking on a huge monster. Warriors hacked and slashed the creature while flying over a giant lake, which threatened to submerge them and their dragons.

Earlier this year, the game was delayed until 2017, after Platinum originally scheduled it for a holiday 2016 release. When it launches next year — at an unspecified date — it will be part of the new Xbox Play Anywhere program, allowing for progress to carry over between the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions.

Watch the trailer above to see the latest of Scalebound, an action role-playing title set in a fantastical, dragon-filled world. Its first — and most recent  — E3 appearance was at Microsoft's 2014 E3 show, when Platinum Games first revealed the title. Little else has been seen from it since Gamescom 2015, when the studio debuted footage of the game's four-player cooperative multiplayer.

We spoke to Kamiya about his plans for the game back in 2014 during Tokyo Game Show, where he compared it to Platinum's other popular action titles, like Bayonetta.
