Travelling back to beginning of this year, Microsoft’s Phil Spencer dropped in a bunch of hints that indicated his plans of revivification of some of the Xbox Classics.

While speaking to Siliconera last year, Futatsugi stated that he would readily accept Microsoft’s proposal if they ever were to remake the game. Besides, he also has some ideas for a sequel.

Of all the games I have created so far, Phantom Dust is my favorite. Microsoft owns the IP, so if Microsoft would say they want to do it, I’m ready to jump on board immediately. I’ve already got ideas for a sequel in mind. Perhaps it’s also good to note here that the art lead for Phantom Dust is a member of our company and participated in the Crimson Dragon production.

Phantom Dust was originally created by Microsoft Studios in collaboration with Yukio Futatsugi back in 2004 exclusively for Xbox.

This card-based action strategy title revolved around collecting skills and building ‘arsenals’ to battle against other players.

Considering that Microsoft is planning on bringing in some of the cult classics to Xbox One, which re-mastered titles would you like to see?
