Panzer Dragoon and Panzer Dragoon 2: Zwei Remakes Announced

The first part is set to come out in 2019.

Forever Entertainment announced that is remaking Panzer Dragoon and Panzer Dragoon 2: Zwei with the first part set to release before the end of 2019.

Polish studio Forever Entertainment, along with Sega Holdings, are remaking the first two Panzer Dragoon games complete with "new graphics compatible with today's standards" as well as "several modifications of the game, making it more attractive modern players, while remaining faithful to the original in terms of story.

It's not clear if this means the remake will be something akin to Activision's remakes of Crash Bandicoot and Spyro, as well as Sony's work on MediEvil. We reached out to Forever Entertainment for more details and asked how involved Sega is in the remake development.

Panzer Dragoon is a cult-classic Sega Saturn shooter known for its music and action-forward gameplay. The series had high-expectations at Sega when the company tried to pit Panzer Dragoon Saga against Final Fantasy VII but was soundly beaten in the market. Panzer Dragoon remains a rare classic and a remake would mean more players will get to discover the games in 2019.
