Crimson Dragon is still alive and not far now

Crimson Dragon, the Kinect-controlled spiritual successor to Panzer Dragoon, by original series creator Yukio Futatsugi, is not far off release now and still in development. Announced in 2010, the game completely missed its June 2012 release date and all has been mostly quiet on Microsoft’s front, but Eurogamer managed to catch up with Futatsugi last week.

Although he couldn’t comment on exactly when we would see it release, he described it as “not far off.” He continued to speak about how the project came to fruition, where Microsoft essentially asked him to recreate Panzer Dragoon for their new tech, describing the game as “perfect for Kinect.” Fans of Panzer Dragoon shouldn’t fear at all: several of the original staff that created the series are actively working on the game too, and Futatsugi said he hoped “people will see this as the sort of game Panzer Dragoon might have been if it had been made today.”

  1. I’ve kind of built a tougher skin concerning long awaited releases from Sega. I think it’s the Shenmue callous.

    Anyways, GREAT NEWS!
