Way back in time Microsoft released the original version of Phantom Dust (an action/strategy game) in Japan (back in 2004). Then Majesco released the game in US in year 2005.
And the game did really well (Phantom Dust has a average score of 83.32% via GameRankings for example).
The most interesting thing about Phantom Dust would of course be the fact that Yukio Futatsugi (Panzer Dragoon, Panzer Dragoon II: Zwei, and Panzer Dragoon Saga) worked on the game. Well, if you´re a fan of Phantom Dust, then you probably didn’t miss out on the remake announcement at E3 this year.
Well, it´s been quite a while since that announcement (over 4 months to be exact). So i´m probably not the only person that wonders about the status for the Phantom Dust remake project (which would be a Xbox One exclusive title). And, well. I did some digging, and i found 15 minute interview with Rev3Games (it´s from June though).
I also found a FB page and a homepage for Phantom Dust (the homepage seems to be dead at the moment). But other than that, there´s not much on the news front. So i don´t know if that means that Yukio (and his team at Microsoft Studios) are hard at work with the Remake.
Or that the project has been put on ice. If any of our readers have any more information about the Phantom Dust remake, then please feel free to comment, or contact us about it.
