ReCore, the Xbox and Windows 10 exclusive action-adventure game from the creators of Metroid Prime and Mega Man, will launch this September. Microsoft revealed the (already leaked) information at their E3 press briefing yesterday, along with a first look at the gameplay.

The game stars Joule and her mechanical dog companion Mack in a post-apocalyptic setting. The trailer above also introduced other mechanical companions for Mack, all of whom fill a variety of different roles, such as Seth the “escape artist” and Duncan the “heavy hitter”. Players will bring these allies to life by putting AI cores in the shells of robots.

ReCore is an enviable team-up of talent for Microsoft, combining the team at Armature Studio, which was founded by ex-Metroid Prime developers, with Keiji Inafune and Halo and Destiny co-creator Joseph Staten.

ReCcore launches on September 13 for Xbox One and Windows 10
