Panzer Dragoon remake coming to Switch this winter

Sega Saturn cult favourite being remastered with improved graphics and controls

Sega has announced that a remake of Panzer Dragoon is in development for Nintendo Switch.

The Sega Saturn classic is being recreated from scratch in a way that Nintendo says is “true to the original, with improved graphics and controls, that suit modern gaming standards”.

Originally released in 1995, the original Panzer Dragoon is a rail shooter in which the player rides atop an armoured blue dragon.

The aim is to get to the ancient Prototype Dragon and destroy it before it reaches a black tower containing a wealth of weaponry.

The Panzer Dragoon remake will be released this winter.
