For those who might not remember Panzer Dragoon, the 1995 title published by Sega is a fan favorite franchise that introduced post-apocalyptic dragons well before Fallout 76 did. But really, the title introduced a new level of immersive gameplay at the time that continuously grabbed players into later titles leading until the final title in 2002.
Fans of the series we have good news for you: Sega along with Polish developer Forever Entertainment S.A. has announced that both Panzer Dragoon I &II will be receiving a complete remake aimed to release sometime next year.
In the press release from the Polish studio, they discusses that the upcoming games will be completely made from scratch and won’t be emulated via backwards compatibility like Panzer Dragoon Orta is for Xbox One.
Panzer Dragoon: Remake is a refreshed version of Panzer Dragoon. The original version of the game had its premiere on the Sega Saturn console in 1995 and was well received by both players and critics. The entire Panzer Dragoon series has been repeatedly remade and released on many platforms. The last re-launch took place in April 2018 on Xbox One, where players can play Panzer Dragoon Orta with a backward compatibility. The new version of the game will be characterized by a completely new graphics compatible with today’s standards and several modifications of the game, making it more attractive to modern players, while remaining faithful to the original in terms of story.
The two original titles were developed by Yukio Futatsugi who previously released Crimson Dragon which launch alongside the Xbox One. Similar to the 2013 title, Panzer Dragoon is a rail shooter which mounts you on a dragon as you progress through several levels.
The two remakes are planned to be dropped before the end of next year assumed for all major platforms.
