TGS 2010 : Xbox 360’s Kinect Gets Panzer Dragoon Game

1 min read


Ok Microsoft, we get it. You said there’d be core games for Kinect..and you weren’t lying. now you’re trying to appeal to my sense of nostalgia. Bastards! Yukio Futatsugi, the fellow who created Panzer Dragoon (and the incredible Phantom Dust) has confirmed he’ll be making a game for Kinect, in which you use your body to fly dragons.

Panzer Dragoon, originally released in 1995 for the ill-fated Sega Saturn was a fantastic rail-shooter, and one of its sequels, the notoriously difficult Panzer Dragoon Orta on the original Xbox is considered one of the greatest rail shooters of all time.

The new game, called Project Draco for now has you interacting with your dragon using Kinect’s camera features to "nurture and learn to communicate" with it in order to make it a better weapon. Other details, including release windows and the like are scant, but news like this gives me a renewed hope for Kinect – even if it is yet another rail shooter.

Let’s hope it ends up being better than Lair.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
