Love Inafune. Hasn't lost an ounce of talent over the years. If anything, he's getting better.

Super excited to see gameplay.

Apparently it'll be shown at Gamescom... I can't say the trailer did much for me (CG trailers are a blight), but the list of devs, the game's website and this interview have all gotten my attention.

The 'last woman alive' concept is intriguing, especially in a world ruled by machines... Finding shelter in a sandstorm sounds like an intense experience, but waiting for it to pass could get boring, so I'm hoping her robotic death-squad will have some conversational qualities.

Inafune lists some of the game's inspirations, which are nothing if not encouraging... he's still being quite vague about the story, but it's due in 2016, so I'd expect to see plenty more at Gamescom and TGS.

I thought Inafune is a one-hit type wonder kind of guy with Mega Man being it. Then I saw Mighty No 9 and the game play looks fun, very fun!

So I am very excited about this especially with Armature involved! :D


I am interested in the game...i just hope it's not a side scroller or top down game. I want a full fledged AAA experience, with a deep story, and fun gameplay.

This sounds interesting to me, but I would love to see how many bodies can the core be placed with in, that's what I got from the trailer.

Yes cant wait to see Recon, Scalebound and Crackdown on stage at Gamescon it will be interesting to say the least. E3 still has me buzzed, I went to put money down on Halo 5, Tomb Raider, Rainbow 6 Siege that includes (Rainbow 6 Vegas, Rainbow 6 Vegas 2) which I am told that even the old games will have multiplayer support...Fallout 4 which include Fallout 3 which I never played before and the Elite Controller which by the way its $25.00 to hold, and the new Tom Raider. While I was in line to put the deposits down I saw three people buying the Xbox One.

Same here. cant wait to see Recore at Gamescom. In an interview with Gamespot Inafune revealed that Recore has been in development for more than 14 months. Hopefully we'll see gameplay very soon. stoked for Scalebound, Crackdown and Quantum Break too. Gamescom will obviously be huge this year.

Man I'm still coming down of the E3 hype, it was so good this year and to think only like six weeks until its starts all over again with Gamescom. Very excited to see Scalebound and Recore gameplay as well as see how Crackdown is gonna define the Cloud gaming landscape. Plus I'm sure Remedy got another amazing Quantum Break demo up their sleeve... plus Phil has said we've only seen a fraction of whats to come as well as just as many game announcements at Gamecom as there were at E3. Can't wait, MS are really bringing it this year...

I know it's irrelevant but I'd love to know how this became and Xbox exclusive. Whether Xbox approached Inafune-san and asked for it or if he approached them.

Golden_Mud1243d ago

Inafune said that he and armature were trying to create a game in the past, and they tried to come to the concept in mind, at the time they came down to a concept, Armature was in works with Microsoft so they presented the concept to Microsoft and that's where the game came from.

Mikefizzled1243d ago

Thanks. One question remains of what were Armature and Microsoft doing together? Armature seem to only have publicly done ports.

this game look like will have the shadow of the beast 2.5D gameplay style

poppinslops1243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

They list games like Zelda and Monster Hunter (and anime and Hollywood blockbusters) as sources of inspiration for ReCore, so I don't think it'll be anything like Shadow of the Beast... except for the desert, obviously.

It sounds more like an open-world game, where access to certain areas will be determined by your Robots' abilities... classic Metroid-style exploration.
