Ten days ago, we reported that Hideki Kamiya tweeted to the Xbox boss Phil Spencer that he wanted to work together again. He was referring to Scalebound, a game that was led by Kamiya, but unfortunately got cancelled in the end.

This is a weird thing to ask for in an open tweet, and when VGC, got the opportunity to ask Kamiya recently whether he was serious in his request, he replied:

"I think it's really strange because, to be honest, I've been in a lot of interviews since the project ended and I feel like I've said many times that I'd love to be able to bring it back. Having gotten somewhere with it, as a creator I'd like to see it to the end. And I hear fans saying they really want to play that game, which is too bad, and I want to give that to them when I hear that."

Kamiya continued by explaining that this is something that he wanted of his chest for quite some time now:

"That's something that I thought I'd been saying, or I'd been trying to say for years now. I've said it in interviews before and gotten no reaction, but now finally I got a big reaction, and I was glad to see that. But no, it's not a joke: I'm totally serious about it, yeah."

If this actually will happen is very uncertain, and would take a very long time to do as all old assets are just that now... old. Still, it would surely be a PR victory for Microsoft and surely they wouldn't mind an exclusive Japanese title.
