First Panzer Dragoon: Remake footage makes its debut at E3

Forever Entertainment is finally ready to show off the Panzer Dragoon remake, due later this year.

As part of its jam-packed E3 Direct, Nintendo today showed a brief trailer for Panzer Dragoon: Remake, which is coming to Nintendo Switch later this year. The game is being published by Forever Entertainment, under license from SEGA.

"Forever Entertainment under the license of SEGA Holding Co., Ltd. from Japan will create and publish Panzer Dragoon: Remake and Panzer Dragoon II Zwei: Remake," Forever Entertainment had previously announced. "The premiere of the first part is planned before the end of 2019!"

Today's trailer showed the dragon and its rider flying over water areas, blasting pillars while beautiful scenery passes to either side and hit boxes appear on potential targets. Panzer Dragoon and its sequel, as well as Panzer Dragoon Orta, were rail shooters.

Naturally, since Nintendo showed off the footage, there was no word on whether the game is coming to other platforms such as the PlayStation 4 and PC. It seems likely the game will appear all over the place, though perhaps not on the same date.

Forever Entertainment is not a well-known developer, but it has been extremely active on the Switch as of late. Prior to that, it worked largely on mobile devices and PC. Its most recognizable property is likely the Frederic series of rhythm games, so it's difficult to say how well that experience will (or won't) translate to the remake effort.

Check out the trailer embedded above if you would like to see how the game looks for yourself, and watch for its eventual release as a download title later this year.

I care about this. There is no such thing as a bad Panzer Dragoon game.

Panzer Dragoon is routinely lauded for being the best game on the Tiger R-Zone.

I though this would lead to a PD Mini bash, which would have displeased me greatly.

I was almost tempted to buy a Tiger R-Zone, Panzer Dragoon, and a couple other games just to see for myself.

Then I saw the price for Panzer Dragoon. Which... is a quote you can use for every Panzer Dragoon game, actually. Good thing I got the first two Saturn games used in good condition years ago.
