Panzer Dragoon 1&2 are getting the remake treatment

Hopefully development won't dragon too long.

Sega's classic on-rails shooters Panzer Dragoon 1&2 are getting the remake treatment courtesy of Polish publisher Forever Entertainment.

We don't know too much about it, beyond that the first instalment is planned for unspecified platforms before the end of next year.

Forever Entertainment did provide a brief statement (via Gematsu - thanks for the spot!). "The new version of the game will be characterised by a completely new graphics compatible with today's standards and several modifications of the game," it says.

The first two Panzer Dragoon games launched on Sega's Saturn in 1995 and 1996, their ethereal artwork and stately style earning them many fans in the process and ensuring a number of further titles. The Game Gear got its own take on the series in 1996, while more recently Orta came to Xbox in 2002 (and is playable via backwards compatibility on the Xbox One, where you can also play spiritual successor Crimson Dragon).

Most cherished of them all, though, is Panzer Dragoon Saga, the sumptuous RPG that launched on the Saturn in 1998. Will that get a remake too? It seems unlikely seeing how Sega supposedly lost the source code, meaning any such endeavour would require a serious feat of reverse engineering.
