    Arrow New "Panzer Dragoon" to be Published by Microsoft

    The new game, developed for the Kinect by Panzer Dragoon creator Yukio Futatsugi, will be called Crimson Dragon and be published by Microsoft Game Studios. It will feature both an on-rails single-player mode and a new three-player online co-op mode. Crimson Dragon will be a downloadable title for Xbox Live and released this year, 2012, in North America. And based on screenshots and gameplay impressions, it is Panzer Dragon in all but name (likely because SEGA owns that name). The controls sound right out of Rez 2... er, I mean, Child Of Eden.

    The first of many official screens from the game formerly known as Project Draco.

    According to a report on Famitsu, Crimson Dragon is due out on Xbox Live Arcade this year. Just like the Panzer Dragoon series, the game is an on-rails shooter where players control the onscreen dragon by using their body movement tracked by the Kinect motion sensor.

    Gamers attack onscreen enemies by using their left and right hands. The right hand is for lock-on and homing shots, while the left hand is for single hard-hitting shots that use up the dragon's spirit gauge.

    The game also features the option to customise dragons. Players feed their mounts different sorts of meat to boost their attributes and give them new skills. The title also features three-player co-op over Xbox Live, using players' dragons from the single-player campaign.

    Crimson Dragon was announced under its previous name at Tokyo Game Show 2010.

    Shitty title, but it's half the reason I purchased a Kinect.

    I was reasonably confident M$ and third party devs would have released appealing software for the little wundercam by now, but it just hasn't happened. I like Child of Eden a lot and this should be cool too, but I wish devs would release interesting stuff for Kinect before its potential is totally wasted and resources are shifted to the next generation.

    Anyway, I'm excited about this.

    I am glad they released some new info. I was starting to think this project was dead.

    That being said, this game will make me buy a Kinect. I can't wait. I am a HUGE Panzer Dragoon fan. Even though there may not be a connection to the PD world or timeline, I know Yukio Futatsugi will make sure it plays just as well.

    By far the best news for me is that he got Saori Kobyashi back to do the music. I have been keeping my fingers crossed for this since Draco was announced. She scored both Panzer Dragoon Saga and Orta, two phenomenal soundtracks and I will buy the OST for this the second it goes on sale.
    If a god is willing to prevent evil, but not able, then he is not omnipotent. If he is able, but not willing, then he must be malevolent. If he is both willing and able, then why is there evil? If he is neither able or willing then why call him a god?

    Why is this for Kinect? :/ The controls sound like more of an annoyance than anything that would add to the game.

    Sounds a lot like Child of Eden and that game did really benefit from Kinect controls.

    I love Panzer Dragoon, so this is a no brainer. It will be nice to give the Kinect a workout.

    Microsoft accidently posted the demo for Crimson Dragon on XBL but pulled it back down. Here's a video of it. This game would benefit more through the use of traditional control methods plus motion controls such as the Move or Wiimote. Or even if they had an optional control scheme for the Kinect that your hand would be used to shoot but you could use a 360 analog to move the dragon. Moving your upper body at an angle to move the dragon around isn't something I want to be doing to play a video game.

    I don't know about the Kinect from first-hand experience, but I've read that there's lag from the design, which I don't think is really good for a game like this (or for any game, actually).

    Im not a fan of Wii or Kinect style game controls. Its good the series is back though. The Kinect though is going to be used to monitor people, so I cant support this.

    The demo looks fantastic from a graphical standpoint, but I still am saddened by the fact that it is Kinect only. I played the game at PAX (I forget if it was Prime or East...one of the two) it was one of the first games I jumped on during press hour as I was dieing to try it....I came away severely disappointed.

    Having to lean all over the place to move the dragon QUICKLY grows tiresome and is certainly not the ideal way I would want to play a PD style game. When I asked about traditional controller support, I was told the game would strictly be Kinect only

    I have nothing against the Kinect, but I can't help but see a lost opportunity when I think about the potential this game could have had if it were released with a traditional control scheme (or at least as an option). Being the PD fan I am though I may still re-buy my Kinect to give this game another try....that and finally be able to play the Gunstringer.

    Kinect-only is foolish. How freaking difficult is it to add controller support?

    Based on my demo experience and certain reviews Steel Battalion is pretty bad. I had forgotten all about this Panzer Dragoon spiritual successor game. I will eventually pick it up. Maybe they will throw in free versions of the three Saturn games the way Ninja Gaiden did back on the Xbox as unlockables.

    Please tell me you're joking. Why would Sega give them the rights to use actual Panzer Dragoon games?

    I thought Sega was making this but it only says the creator of Panzer Dragoon is making the game in that link. But if Sega were involved(I'm not sure since it only says Microsoft is publishing it) then I wouldn't see why they couldn't do it. And if not they could just make them regular XBLA downloads.


    EDIT: According to wiki Grounding Inc is developing this game. So now it's guaranteed no bonus games.

    If Sega were involved, it would presumably have Panzer Dragoon somewhere in the title.

    Not neccesarily. Konami published Hard Corps: Uprising a few years ago without adding the "Contra" title.
