Phantom Dust is coming to the Xbox One, Microsoft announced this morning at their E3 press conference.


A tweet from Xbox’s Larry Hryb (AKA Major Nelson) indicates that the game is actually a remake. Hryb tweeted: “Phantom Dust remastered with all-new gameplay and graphics. Relive the story exclusively on Xbox One”


Phantom Dust was a game developed for the original Xbox, directed by Yukio Futatsugi, director of Panzer Dragoon and Crimson Dragon.

    This is the definition of a system seller for me. I can’t not play this after wanting it for so long. Thank you Futatsugi-sama. ^3^

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    Was always interested in playing the original. This is pretty cool, another game to look forward to when I get an Xbox One.

  • Warboss Aohd

    i know theres a dude on the Something Awful Forums who is gonna be ecstatic to hear this.

    • Andrés Ortiz Ozeta

      look no further, i am that dude =’D

      • Warboss Aohd

        your the guy that did the Let’s Play of it?

        • Andrés Ortiz Ozeta

          oh no! just a regular fan =B

    • Robert Kupper

      More than one! :)

    Fantastic the original wasn’t released in Europe so this is great.

    • So that’s why I’ve never heard of Phantom Dust before…

  • Andrés Ortiz Ozeta

    Glad to see Phantom Dust was given a second chance… it went quietly during the end of the original X box life span, and way too many people didn’t had a chance to even heard of it, so nowadays has an opportunity to really shine

  • Wrathful

    I know it’s a good news but I’m holding it out with waited breath. Microsoft should know this game is the goldmine they’ve been sitting on that if they develop it well, even a naysayer like me would get xbox one. That is if they don’t let it share the same tragic fate as Crimson Dragon.

  • The original was a cult classic, I’m excited that Microsoft is not only giving this game another lease on life but brought it to E3 where it will be seen by a much larger audience

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    One of the best deck bulding games ever made is now getting released for the Xbox One. I CAN’T CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT!!!!! The original is a masterpiece and it offered some of the best destruction based gameplay I’ve ever experienced. The utterly incredible presentation and intriguing story helped though.

  • LemonsArentForever

    so cool! Glad they announced this. microsoft is kinda impressing me. this generation might be a great one.

  • Göran Isacson

    Oooh, THIS is interesting. I always wanted to play this back in the day, and with modern hardware it could be even more awe-inspiring… though then again, it might be a bit too early to jump on the Xbox One bandwagon just yet. Might be the case that this too ends up on PC, after all.

    • Robert Kupper

      Microsoft hates PC and this was announced as an exclusive for Xbone. Sad, I know :P

      • Göran Isacson

        Ah, so it has definitely been stated to be an exclusive then? Alas, I suppose it was to be expected. Though MS have said they’ll be putting more games on PC, but I suppose we will have to wait and see if those words mean anything.

        • Robert Kupper

          Yeah, its been stated as Xbone only. A real shame for me at least. Maybe if steam machines pick up and people actually use Linux, Microsoft will have to do something for PC.

          As a linux user though… I am not holding breath. Its not going to work for desktop mainstream, so I don’t think microsoft has any threat or need to compete there.

          • Göran Isacson

            Out of curiosity, can Linux users play the games released for “regular” Steam, or do you have some kind of special Steam that only plays games that are actually written for Linux?

            For if so, man you have my sympathies.

          • Robert Kupper

            Steam isn’t a platform. Steam is a store, you can only play games written for your operating system. You can use a program called WINE to try and run windows programs, but it requires a lot of fiddling and usually doesn’t fly for new releases. Linux is getting some bigger titles these days, like the Witcher series, but it is still a minority of games. This makes sense because it is also about 1% of the userbase.

            I myself am on windows right now; I need it for work so I may as well use it for most games as well. I can’t do everything in Linux even if I wanted to. (And I do enjoy using linux)

            Steam Machines will run Linux, (Though they can stream windows games from a desktop), but I am not convinced the average person wants what linux has to offer for their main computer. It took me about 4 hours to get steam fully working for instance. Linux is all about options, but I think the average person wants consistency.

            Unless windows 9 is as poorly perceived as windows 8 was, which is unlikely, I doubt Linux will be gaining any market share at all.

    I never had a chance to finish the original this is cool
