    Late last year, SEGA announced that one of their biggest Sega Saturn classics, Panzer Dragoon, would be getting a full remake. During the Nintendo Direct at E3 2019, we got to get a glimpse at what the reimagined game would look like, along with confirmation of the platform: a presumed exclusive for the Nintendo Switch. Now, that's no longer the case, as Panzer Dragoon: Remake has been announced for PC, and will release on Steam this Winter, alongside the Switch version. Panzer Dragoon II: Zwei will also receive a remake for the same platforms, in 2020.

    This is fantastic and all, but a Saga remake should be top priority!!!

    Not happening, they can't just make it look prettier they lose the code. They would have to start from scratch it would be an expensive long term project, for a game that made them peanuts.

    Best chance to play Saga on Switch is when Yaba Sanshiro core for Retroarch gets released.

    This is a series I never got around to playing because of the odd platform choices. Glad I'll finally be able to remedy that, gameplay looks solid in a Starfox 64 sort of way.

    Zwei remake confirmed and a Pc release woo!
    Sad for the switch though as Panzer Dragoon was one of my excuses for owning a Switch but if its on PC I'd rather go there.
    Hopefully a special PC release box could happen but Im just dreaming too much.
    Hope it does well as Id love to see Saga remade. Im sure theres a bigger fan demand for it nowadays, especially if these remakes sell well.

    Really excited for this and nice to see the graphics reauirements arent too crazy on PC. The series deserves so much mkre attettion.
    Fingers croaswd its Spyro remake levels of good.

    That remake isn't developed by SEGA though.
    It is actually developed by MegaPixel Studio and published by Forever Entertainment.
    SEGA aren't involved with it, and they probably just gave up the IP.

    I didn't realize that, but it doesn't surprise me. Sega seems to only want to put out big sellers like Yakuza, Persona and Sonic these days. It would take a big budget to do Saga though I think that makes it even less likely a remake ever happens without Sega's money behind it.

    This is awesome! Hopefully the Switch won't be too anemic for this game!

    You know, while they're at it, they could port Crazzzzy Taxi 3, JSRF, and Panzer Dragoon Orta to modern platforms and kill most of the need for an OG Xbox emulator on PC!

    You're forgetting an important fact, Sega isn't porting this. I would love those games on Switch though, although I have them on my rgh Xbox 360.

    Yeah, I just read @RedoLane's post. Did they sell the rights to the IP?

    That's better than letting it wither and rot in legal document hell like some companies do... *Darkstalkers intensifies*

    Yeah I guess so. Other than Shenmue 1 and 2 HD Sega hasn't really shown much love to their older franchises this gen, other than a few ports like Virtua Racing.

    Fun fact: the devs that made the Panzer Dragoon Trilogy ended up after being called Smilebit and made Jet Set Radio and Future, as well as Orta.

    What's wrong with it not being on EGS? EGS is utter trash.

    Shenume 1/2 HD are funny because they are there purely to capitalize on Shenume 3, which Sega has zero involvement in. And I hear their sales underwhelmed so it isn't encouraging Sega to do more remasters.
