The Xbox One exclusive video game ReCore that was first revealed at E3 is adding another prominent name to its roster.
Developed by Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune and Armature Studio, the studio behind Metroid Prime, ReCore follows the story of a female character named Joule who is the last person remaining on a desert planet, and is tasked with getting help from robots to revive the human race.
And according to The New York Times, writer Joseph Staten will pen the story of the female heroine.
"The male gender does not have the monopoly on heroism," Staten told The Times. "Joule is emblematic of this conviction, and we hope she's a character who stands strong and stands out in a market filled with male heroes."
And with his other successful titles already under his belt, ReCore's Joule might give Lara Croft a run for her money. Staten was a member of the Bungie writing team up until 2013. He was the lead writer on Destiny and Halo, as well as managing the extended universe tie-ins regarding the latter.
The Microsoft exclusive video game is currently being developed at Comcept and Armature Studios. ReCore is set to be released in spring of 2016.
