Back in 2014, Microsoft announced that a Phantom Dust remake would launch for Xbox One. Plans eventually changed and instead we were promised a remaster of the 2004 action strategy title that was received very well by gamers and critics alike. After not hearing much about it for a while, Aaron Greenberg of Microsoft has brought big news on his Twitter account.

Greenberg has revealed that a revamped version of Phantom Dust is indeed arriving this year. It will launch as a Play Anywhere title on the Windows Store, which means you can use the same save whether you play it on PC or Xbox One. Cross-play support will also be added to the multiplayer components of the game. But perhaps the best news of all: it will be free to download.
The Phantom Dust remake, which arrives May 16, will support 16:9 and a number of visual and framerate improvements.
