PostPhantom Dust (XB1/Win 10) - Re-announced at E3 2016. Out 2017.

Just been re-announced at E3 2016. Out 2017. Seems like a HD Port with modern Xbox Live features & Arena.

Old info -



A new Phantom Dust game is coming exclusively to Xbox One, Microsoft announced today during its E3 press conference.

The new Phantom Dust appears to be an upgraded remake of the original with new gameplay and remade graphics.

Microsoft published the original Phantom Dust for Xbox in Japan in 2004, and by Majesco in North America in 2005. The game was developed by Microsoft Game Studios under the direction of Panzer Dragon and Crimson Dragon director Yukio Futatsugi.

Phantom Dust is an action-strategy game with card-based battling elements in which players explore and collect skills to help them complete missions and defeat other players. The goal is to discover why the Earth has become the way it is: Normal humans have taken to subterranean dwellings to avoid the mysterious dust that coats the world's wasted surface, while humans that can use the dust to fight prowl in search of the Ruins, a memory that exists in the mind of those who now live underground.

Studio developing game closes, MS continuing to work on it -

Independent development studio Darkside Games, which was working on the planned reboot of the cult classic Phantom Dust, shut down this afternoon in the wake of news that Microsoft had cancelled their version of the game, Kotaku has learned.

Microsoft, however, says they're still working on the upcoming Xbox One reboot.

"Microsoft partnered with Darkside Game Studios in the development of 'Phantom Dust,' but our working relationship has now ended," a Microsoft spokesperson said. "We have great respect for their studio and their work in the industry. While we do not have anything new to share on 'Phantom Dust' at this time, we can confirm that development of the title continues. We look forward to sharing more details on the game as we get closer to release."

Looks like Second Son. By that I mean it has a female character who glows purple.
