MegaPixel Studio’s remake of Sega’s classic Panzer Dragoon sequel, Panzer Dragoon II Zwei, will be released later this year. The studio confirmed the news to a fan on Twitter yesterday, who had also inquired as to whether a remake of the critically acclaimed Panzer Dragoon Saga would also happening. Unfortunately, MegaPixel Studio had no comment on that, nor did it clarify whether Panzer Dragoon II Zwei’s PC port might be launching at the same time as the Nintendo Switch version. (Panzer Dragoon: Remake launched in March 2020 for Switch but did not hit Steam until September 2020.)
“Forever Entertainment under license from SEGA Holding Co., Ltd from Japan will create and publish games Panzer Dragoon: Remake and Panzer Dragoon II Zwei: Remake,” publisher Forever Entertainment announced in 2018. “The premiere of the first part is planned before the end of 2019!”
“Panzer Dragoon: Remake is a refreshed version of Panzer Dragoon. The original version of the game premiered on the Sega Saturn console in 1995 and was well received by both players and critics. The entire Panzer Dragoon game series has been resumed and released many times on many platforms. The last resumption took place in April 2018 on Xbox One, where under backward compatibility players can play Panzer Dragoon Orta.”
MegaPixel Studio’s Panzer Dragoon II Zwei remake will presumably follow on the heels of its initial effort with completely remade graphics, alongside gameplay modifications that should make it easier to play for modern audiences. Panzer Dragoon II Zwei was originally released for the Sega Saturn in 1996.
