Forever Entertainment's PANZER DRAGOON: REMAKE Is Finally Available for Nintendo Switch
Mechanic: Bartosz Sobczak
In a surprising turn of events, Nintendo and Forever Entertainment have just announced that the highly anticipated reimagining of 1995's on-rails shooter Panzer Dragoon is now available on Nintendo Switch as a timed exclusive.
During today's Nintendo Direct Mini, the company confrimed that information, as Panzer Dragoon: Remake is out now on Switch for $24.99. In the title, the player takes on the role of a dragon rider to "pilot through seven unbelievably realistic levels ranging from tropical blue ocean cities to [...] subterranean ruins."
According to the team at Nintendo, the new remake gives fans the chance to "fight the Prototype Dragon who appears together with evil giant dragonflies, frightening man-sized wasps, giant sandworms, and lethal flying battleships." As the brave hero, the player will "attack approaching from all sides enemies quickly and without mercy, with improved 360-degree controls and lock-on targeting."
As a reminder, Sega and Wildman — the makers of Gunner of the Dragoon — are officially working on Panzer Dragoon: Voyage Record, and the VR-exclusive production will hit stores sometime this fiscal year.
The remake is still coming to Google Stadia and PC, but it's not clear when the other versions of the title will actually launch. Chances are that the game will also be released on XSX and PS5 at a later date. Check it out:
