Cancelling 'Scalebound' is a huge blow for PlatinumGames

Scalebound is no more. Platinum's Xbox exclusive has been cancelled by Microsoft, killing the dream of a Devil May Cry meets Last Guardian mashup. What a shame. I saw the game behind closed doors on two separate occasions, and was left positively smitten with the concept. It centered on Drew, an arrogant, headphone loving twenty-something lost in a world filled with dragons. With Thuban, an eventual friend and fire-breathing combat partner, he would scour floating islands and decimate mythical enemies large and small. Throughout the game you would control them both, slashing as Drew and throwing out commands to Thuban.
