E3 2019: Panzer Dragoon Shoots Straight for your Heart with this New Remake

Sorry to drag these puns out.

Panzer Dragoon. Now that’s a classic game right there, one of the RPG greats that is often and deservedly ranked right up there with Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, and Earthbound. But while those games have all enjoyed re-releases, occasional remakes, and the complete and baffling neglect from Nintendo, Panzer Dragoon has typically found itself as little more than a fond memory of a near-forgotten era in gaming. It’s been long overdue for a proper remake, and at this year’s E3, we finally got it: a proper, true-to-form remake of the beloved RPG.

Gaze upon it and all its splendor.

A new, remade version of the Panzer Dragoon game – true to the original, with improved graphics and controls, that suit modern gaming standards! On a far, lone planet, you encounter two dragons awaken 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. Panzer Dragon: Remake comes to Nintendo Switch this Winter!

Gotta say: the music is on-point. Really evocative of that classic RPG optimism and warmth.

Anyway. The first game was released in 1995 for Sega, and the latest game in the series was released in 2002, with Panzer Dragoon Orta, which means that when this bad boy is released in winter, it’ll have been nearly eighteen years since we last explored this post-apocalyptic world. I never played the first game – or even really dabbled in the series, if I’m being honest – but I know it by reputation and I’m happy to see that it’s finally coming back to seduce old and new fans alike.

I just hope it’s as good as people remember.

I guess we’ll find out in a few short months!
