The Xbox One Phantom Dust port isn’t going to be taking very much room on your PC or Xbox One console when it comes out, as it’s only around 3.4 gigabytes in size in an age where most games that come out on the Xbox One are around 50 or 60 gigabytes.
It’s definitely a far cry from the original release of Phantom Dust, which was released on the original Xbox console back in 2004 in Japan and 2005 in North America. Back in 2014 a supposed sequel was supposed to be getting made, but that has apparently been cancelled along with Scalebound, leaving a remastering of the original Phantom Dust to be put on current-gen Microsoft consoles.
The remastered version of the game is actually bigger than the original Xbox version, which was only around three gigabytes. However, the Xbox One Phantom Dust port is only around .4 gigabytes larger, meaning that when it actually comes out, you likely won’t have to wait long for it to actually download when you buy it and put it on your console.
In addition to everything from the original Phantom Dust game, the Xbox One and Windows 10 PC version will also include a number of things like cross-platform saves, Xbox Live Arena support, cross-platform play, the full Xbox Live feature set from the original game, multiplayer starter arsenals, balance and frame rate improvements, and the multiplayer skill shop no longer being limited to game progression.
While the Xbox One Phantom Dust port doesn’t technically have a release date yet, we’ll likely be hearing about it in the next few months when we’ll be able to see a release date. In the meantime, we can hope that Xbox and Microsoft will release at least one piece of gameplay between now and then, and hope that the remastered version will be good.
