Nintendo revealed during its Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) Direct presentation today that a remake of Panzer Dragoon is coming to Switch. It is coming out this winter.

Panzer Dragoon is a classic rail shooter for the Sega Saturn. The remake will include improved visuals and controls. The last game in the series, Orta, came out for Xbox back in 2002.

This remake will improved visual and controls.

“On a far, lone planet, you encounter two dragons awakened from the ancient times,” Nintendo detailed in a press release sent to GamesBeat. “Armed with a deadly gun from the past, and the guidance of your armored blue dragon, you must fulfill your destiny and keep the Prototype Dragon from reaching the Tower, or die trying.”
