Bayonetta Dev's Scalebound Will Boost Sales of Xbox One in Japan, Says Exec
Xbox marketing manager says Platinum Games has a big fanbase in Japan.
Speaking to DualShockers at Xbox One Fanfest in Tokyo, Masashi was asked whether he believes the Microsoft exclusive action game from the studio behind Bayonetta and Metal Gear Rising will drive hardware sales.
"To be honest... Oh yes. Oh yes," he replied. "I think not only it’s an exclusive for Xbox, but Platinum Games is well known, and has big fans in Japan and also overseas.

"So, having seen those great demos, I firmly believe that it’s going to deliver a lot of excitement to our customers, and we’re looking forward to the release."
Scalebound is being directed by Hideki Kamiya, who has said his goal is to "create new gameplay" experiences for players.
"The one thing that I will say is that up until this point in my career, and up until this point in Platinum Games' history, we've never made a game like Scalebound," he added.
"What I'm trying to do with Scalebound is create a very different kind of game than what I've created up until this point. We're trying to create new gameplay, and that is a challenge for me personally."
Currently, Scalebound has a vague late 2016 release window.
