Scalebound is coming to Xbox One in holiday 2016

Scalebound will show you how to train your dragon (into a remorseless manslayer) in holiday 2016. The Xbox One-exclusive action brawler from Platinum Games got a special demo at Microsoft's Gamescom 2015 demo, which also revealed its new four-player co-op mode.

The demo, controlled on-stage by Platinum Games' Hideki Kamiya, showed the main character and his faithful dragon friend tearing up a regiment of knights. Players can use the main character's sword, bow, and draconic arm to take down foes while commanding the dragon to destroy distant foes or help out with powerful combo attacks on massive enemies.

We didn't see much of the multiplayer mode, but it does look like every player will be able to bring their own dragon for some truly massive cross-species scrapping.

Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo.
