Xbox head Phil Spencer just revealed the first shot of the Phantom Dust on Xbox One

The title was originally announced as a remake for Xbox One a few years ago, but the project was unfortunately canceled due to difficulties with the game's developer. In the interim, Microsoft Studios has decided to port the original version of the game to Xbox One and Windows 10, giving it a bit of a makeover in the process.

We haven't seen a single shot of the re-release, until now!

Xbox head Phil Spencer tweeted the above image a few moments ago, giving us a glimpse at how Phantom Dust will look when it arrives on Xbox One and Windows 10 with Xbox Play Anywhere support and cross-platform play.

Phantom Dust combines card deck building with action RPG combat, complete with competitive multiplayer and a rich, post-apocalyptic plot. The original game was by no means a commercial success, but it garnered a cult fan base.

Microsoft Studios' head Shannon Loftis spearheaded the game's re-release, developed by Vancouver-based Code Mystics. Presumeably, Microsoft will gauge Phantom Dust's potential as a franchise based on how well the re-release is received, which should be some time before E3 2017, in June.
