Phantom Dust Re-Release: Here's The First Screenshot

The game is due out on Xbox One and PC before E3.

27 Comments

Microsoft has released the first screenshot from the upcoming Phantom Dust re-release for Xbox One and PC, not to be confused with the scuttled brand-new Phantom Dust.

Posted by Xbox boss Phil Spencer on Twitter (via Gematsu), the image shows that the game is running at 30 FPS. Spencer captioned the image, "Having fun today." He later clarified that the image was captured on Xbox One, not Project Scorpio. "Thought this was a nice shot," he said.

As Microsoft Studios GM Shannon Loftis explained at E3 2016 where the game was announced, the Phantom Dust re-release uses assets from the 2004 original. Some "key" parts of the game have been updated, Loftis said, while there is now Xbox Live support for multiplayer.

As for a release date, this hasn't been announced yet, but Spencer said previously that the game "should ship before E3." E3 2017 officially runs June 13-15, though the event actually begins sooner, as Microsoft and Bethesda both have briefings lined up for June 11.

The Phantom Dust re-release is an Xbox Play Anywhere title. That means when it buy it digitally on Xbox One or PC, you can play it on the other system at no extra cost. Additionally, all progress and achievements move between platforms.

A sort of hybrid of card games and shooters, Phantom Dust earned an 8.5 in GameSpot's review.

So nice to see an XBox title getting upgraded to current gen. This positive trend should continue until there is no more any reason to keep the old hardware around other than keeping the door open. There is one company that is fighting this natural and logical trend though: EA. They're sworn enemies of the good old games and have sworn to eradicate them from the face of the Earth.

I was hyped for a reboot to the series but the release of the original by todays standards isnt going to turn any heads what is Spencer thinking very disappointed in how this turned out.

Game isn't that impressive, just focus on Xbox one x and release star citizen on it; then mass effect, no man's sky and grand theft auto may have a problem.

Star citizen is a rare game that shouldn't actually exist by today's standards.(no man's sky is one key example why.)

@sakaixx:

I know I'm going to buy it. A) the game looks interesting enough and B) MS won't start developing non shooter/racing titles until they see people are interested in other genre's.

@Prats1993: It's from the original Xbox meaning it bears no resemblance to architecture on X360 and definitely not Xbox One. So if anything , its harder to run on any new machine that it is an old machine. Also, it's in development.

Quite amusing when people don't understand what goes on.

@Prats1993: 1) Halo Remastered was ported to Xbox 360 and Windows before XB1, so therefore this is an invalid point.

2) Halo Remastered has already been released. This reboot hasn't.

What's your point? You're comparing two different scenarios and a released game vs a game in dev.

@Prats1993: this is no remaster,its more like a re-release.

Compare it to the re-releases of Ps2 games for the Ps4

At least they brought back the original. It sucks when they reboot an old game, then cancel it, and then just toss the original aside with it. On PC classics or even niche cult classics continue to get updated, so it's nice to see a title like this get similar treatment.

Can't wait to try out this game for the first time.

Between Voodoo Vince and Phantom Dust, it'll be nice to finally play some of those original Xbox games I never was able to play (since I never owned it).

Nice! 16:9. This whole time I was thinking they were just going to leave it 4:3.

@indojimbo: Here's to hoping for 21:9 on PC, but that's wishful thinking.
