21 years have passed since the release of ‘Perfect Dark’ on Nintendo 64.

The game will have starring agent Joanna Dark. For Phil Spencer, betting on this title allows them to focus “on a female lead in our catalog. We don’t have much of that in our midst. first-party. I think Joanna offers a lot of modern opportunities where I love seeing the team focus on having a strong lead. “
