Emeric Thoa, the creative director is looking forward to Furi coming to the Microsoft home console:
“We are very happy to bring Furi to Xbox One, especially this version has been really polished and features a completely new bossfight. This fight requires players to master all the skills acquired during the game. It’s a real test of focus.”
