Recently, the internet has been obsessing over rumors that PlatinumGames’ Scalebound could see a revival on Nintendo Switch. Speculation spread like wildfire after Game Informer editor Imran Khan stated that some canceled game would be heading to the hybrid console.
However, Jean Pierre Kellams, a former creative producer with PlatinumGames, has raised doubts about all the hearsay.
After Nintendo Insider reported that Scalebound would become a Switch exclusive, Kellams plainly responded on Twitter that he didn’t believe in the report’s validity.
Shit. I don’t know. I don’t work there anymore and haven’t talked to anyone about it, but I’d highly doubt this is a thing. https://t.co/lM1iypFzwy

It is worth noting that Kellams worked as Scalebound’s lead producer during his time with PlatinumGames, from 2013-2017. As such, he would have been in an ideal position to know if the game was being translated over to Switch. We’ll report back when we learn more about this rumor.
