A remake of Panzer Dragoon was one of the more left-field announcements at Nintendo’s E3 Direct.
Originally released in 1995 on the Sega Saturn, the title received critical acclaim, with one critic at the time saying:
‘It orchestrates incredible story animation with brilliant, 3D flight graphics to create what is, basically, the ultimate evolution of Space Harrier.’
Now we have a second gameplay trailer to look at:
The premise: on a far, lone planet, you encounter two dragons awakened from the ancient times. Armed with a deadly gun from the past, and the guidance of your armored blue dragon, you must fulfill your destiny and keep the Prototype Dragon from reaching the Tower or die trying.
Developed by MegaPixel Studio, arcade shooter Panzer Dragoon will be released on Switch this winter.
