Microsoft has announced Recore, a whole new franchise coming exclusively to Xbox One, from Megaman and Metroid Prime creator Keiji Inafune. It is being developed by Inafune's studio Comcept and Armature Studio.

Playing as one of the last surviving humans, you and a robot companion must explore a mysterious world, with said companion able to inhabit numerous mechanical bodies.

No gameplay is available as of yet but given the pedigree of talent behind Recore, this is a very exciting prospect and a great pick-up for Microsoft. It is being touted for release in Spring 2016.
