Now Playing: Recore - E3 2016 Gameplay Trailer

Recore was first announced during Microsoft's E3 2015 briefing in June, but the game has stayed largely under wraps since then. Inafune is partnering with Armature Studio, which was founded by former Metroid Prime developers.

Recore stars a character named Joule and a robot-dog companion called Mack. Armature Studio co-founder Mark Pacini has said Metroid and The Legend of Zelda are inspirations for the game.

Joseph Staten, the co-creator of the Halo and Destiny universes, who left Bungie to work at Microsoft as a senior creative director, is working as lead writer on Recore.
