A New Panzer Dragoon is Coming To Switch This Winter

A New Panzer Dragoon is Coming To Switch This Winter

The age-old series is getting a new look.

The classic rail shooter series Panzer Dragoon is getting a refresh. Currently titled "Panzer Dragoon" is coming to the Nintendo Switch this winter.

A short trailer showed a lot of flying along preset paths and shooting enemies out of the sky. It's not flowery, but it's Panzer Dragoon, which seems like the thing diehards will be looking for. And the graphics are looking pretty nice, especially on the dragoon itself.

We'll see more about Panzer Dragoon as we approach its release, sometime later this year. In the meantime, keep up with all things about the big show in our guide to E3 2019.
