Game studio, Forever Entertainment, has announced that they’re working with Sega to develop Panzer Dragoon Remake, and Panzer Dragoon II Zwei: Remake, HD remasters of the cult classic game and its sequel for modern systems. Details are slim, but Panzer Dragoon Remake will see a 2019 release.
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 first materials from the game will be presented in the upcoming months!
