Project Draco's final name is Crimson Dragon

Kinect fantasy dragon flying game.

Aerial Kinect shooter Project Draco has apparently been renamed Crimson Dragon, if the Aussie Classification Board is on the money.

Crimson Dragon's developer is correctly listed as Grounding, and we knew the name Project Draco was intended to be temporary.

What's more, early glimpses of Project Draco showed players riding a crimson-coloured dragon.

Crimson Dragon has been given a M rating for mature audiences. It features "fantasy violence", and some form of online play.

Project Draco/Crimson Dragon is the brainchild of Panzer Dragoon creator Yukio Futatsugi. And, like Dragoon, is an on-rails shooter. Microsoft revealed the game for Kinect last year.

"As a Kinect-exclusive game, Project Draco is smart as well as compelling, a game that's as aware of the controller's limitations as it is of its potential," Martin Robinson wrote in Eurogamer's Project Draco preview.
