Panzer Dragoon and Zweii are getting remade

As far as I’m concerned, this is the coolest Sega related announcement I can remember in the modern era. The first game especially needs a remake with its slow framerate.

I hope they do it justice.

Wow! How exciting.

I’m hoping for full on Moebius artwork, like Sable

saw this on another forum and yes I am excited.

Hope they do this title some justice and just don’t be a quick cash-in job :frowning:

Yes, please don’t screw this up.

Do we know anything about the port house? I’m looking at their output and I’m not exactly inspired.

Good point. Do we know who the are?

The article only mentions the publisher, Forever Entertainment?

I’m hopeful because in my experience Polish artists have what it takes from a visual perspective.

This is such a weird, low-key announcement. Why not announce this at TGA or something? These games deserve better.

I’m not sure if the average North American has even heard of the series to be honest.

Another reason may be that the NDA has expired but they have no footage to show yet. But that’s just pure speculation.

Cautiously optimistic.

Nice! Never played this and Saturn stuff is too pricey these days.

The first two games, the ones they’re porting here, are very reasonable if you buy them as imports. You’ll need an Action Replay for them, but there’s a really nice library of import games you can build once you have one.

Panzer Dragoon and Panzer Dragoon Zwei remakes are coming!

excitement intensifies

But it’s by a developer you’ve never heard of before rather than a proven entity like Bluepoint.

excitement fizzles out

Developer is confirmed as MegaPixel Studio

(Who? )

Considering the games aren’t super huge and don’t require insane amounts of 3D modelling, I think it could be done by a less known developer at fairly low cost. I’d love to see the originals in high resolution be included too, but we can only hope.

I am normally pretty cynical of these sorts of things, but I actually think they can pull it off.

I know that supposedly they lost the source code, but I sooo wish they would include Panzer Dragoon Saga in this collection, to complete the Saturn collection. Reverse engineer it, emulate and enhance it, whatever. It would just be cool.

They lost the code for everything Saturn and prior. The only reason why we got so many releases of a select few Saturn games is because they got a PC port back then, which they used.

Yea, kind of crazy how that can happen. I hope Sega develops or buys the license to a really good Saturn emulator some day.

And I hope Saturn emulation continues to improve.
