We finally get a look at the remake of the legendary on-rails shooter.
At the end of last year, we got the announcement that remakes of the first two games in the Panzer series, Panzer Dragoon and Panzer Dragoon II Zwei, were in the works. It’s been silent since that announcement, but today that silence was broken in a big way as we got not only the first official reveal of the first remake, we got to see some actual gameplay.
The game was unveiled at Nintendo’s E3 Direct. While there isn’t a lot, you actually do get to see the game in action. You get a brief feel for how well the game emulates how the original Saturn game played, and how well the developers have captured the original game’s fantastical feel.
If you aren’t familiar, Panzer Dragoon was an on-rails shooter series (though it would eventually have spin-offs in other genres). It was noted for its surprisingly strong story and distinct art style. The last original game that came from the franchise was Panzer Dragoon Orta way back at the launch of the original Xbox.
Panzer Dragoon: Remake was revealed for the Nintendo Switch. Check the trailer out below.
