With Yusuke Hashimoto han­dling Bay­o­netta 2, se­ries cre­ator Hideki Kamiya has been freed to fo­cus on a new project. Scale­bound will pit the player against huge drag­ons and other crea­tures as you ex­plore a hos­tile, Monster Hun­teresque world. You won’t be alone, though, and are able to call upon your own gi­ant, fire-breath­ing rep­til­ian ally to even the odds. Early glimpses sug­gest that you will be fly­ing into bat­tle along­side friends, too, each rid­ing their own colour-coded mon­sters. Scale­bound’s pre­dictably cock­sure, plat­inum-blonde hero comes across like a mashup of Cap­com and Ninja The­ory’s Dantes, wink­ing at the cam­era and lis­ten­ing to mu­sic dur­ing bat­tle through his Beats-like head­phones. He’s armed with a sword and bow, and can also de­ploy his own scaly ar­mour – ap­par­ently trig­gered by mak­ing con­tact with his dragon.
