So is Panzer Dragoon basically a fantasy Star Fox then, gameplay wise?

Sort of except for Saga which is an RPG, it's on rails but is more comparable to Sin and Punishment tbh as it's more set piece heavy and utilizes a central mechanic that the player has to use properly for the situation. The game has a lock on system (it was the first of its kind back then) that changes depending on the current form you have your dragon in and each form is good/bad against certain enemies and situations.

Sounds good to me, I like Star Fox, Sin & Punishment, and RPGs, so...sounds fun.

Well, the Panzer Dragoon universe is more of a post apocalyptic sci-fi setting. With dragons.

But gameplay wise, yes, it is very similar to Starfox. Allthough you use your attacks more strategically in the Panzer Dragoon games, and unlike Lylatwars, you can shift the camera to look to your sides, because in some levels, you're attacked from everywhere.

Okay, now that's fucking cool, count me in. Definitely excited for this one now.



Around the Network

This was the biggest surprise for me in the show apart from No More Heroes 3 (didn't think we were gonna get it).

I'm going to be picking it up when it launches since I never owned a Saturn.



Really loved the first two Panzer Dragoon games on the Saturn back in the day, but its so hard to find reliable discs from that era nowadays, buying them from ebay or flea markets is always a lottery as to whether you're gonna get a disc in such bad condition that you can't progress passed level 1.

As such, I will probably buy this, but with so many Switch games packed into the second half of this year it'll probably sit on my shelf for months before I get around to actually playing it.

I really hope Zwei, which in my opinion was a superior sequel, gets this same treatment.

EDIT: Just read that Zwei is indeed being remade as well, excellent news!



I hope Sega remakes all Saturn games for Switch and other consoles. I love that console and it has a lot of hidden gems but they're so ridiculously expensive.
