Crimson Dragon

Crimson Dragon, a rail shooter from legendary game designer Yukio Futatsugi acting as a spiritual successor to the Panzer Dragoon series, was announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference. The game will be released as an Xbox One exclusive.

While unfortunately lacking sound, they showed gameplay footage in a trailer, demonstrating some of that good old dragon-based combat that any SEGA fan who owned a Saturn or the original Xbox (for Panzer Dragoon Orta) will appreciate. See the trailer below.

    Wasn’t this supposed to be a 360 game

      Yup. Looks like they moved it… there was even a playable demo that leaked onto XBL at one point:

      Yeah… I love how the game looks, but it’s also a Kinect control only game… so it kinda wasn’t gonna be good anyway… unless it had gamepad controls as an option, anyway.

    Yet another terrible decision by Sega.
