Hope they bring this to Xbox. Panzer Dragoon Orta looks amazing without touching it, imagine what they can do remaking this on the X.

Orta wa amazing. It sucks that Sega closed Smilebit though. They were an amazing developer.

Interview with a Polish site:

- the company president, Zbigniew Dębicki, was surprised by the positive reaction
- they plan to release a remake of a cult classic every 12-18 months
- Panzer Dragoon Zwei already in pre-production (estimated time of release mid-2021)
- negotiations already underway on another classic IP (doesn't say which, but I hope it's another Sega Saturn one - Burning Rangers please!)
- they plan to release Panzer Dragoon by March 2020
- there will be a physical version available

A potentially interesting bit of info here, but the auto-translation isn't very clear. Any GAF Polish speakers?

The publisher of "Panzer Dragoon Remake" is Forever Entertainment, and the subsidiary company, MegaPixel Studio. A small budget has been allocated for the game, which is why it is enough to sell so that the production starts to earn a profit. The company does not provide estimated sales that it expects from the new production.

Wydawcą „Panzer Dragoon Remake” jest Forever Entertainment, a producentem zależna spółka, MegaPixel Studio. Na grę został przeznaczony mały budżet, dlatego wystarczy mała sprzedaż, aby produkcja zaczęła na siebie zarabiać. Spółka nie podaje szacunkowej sprzedaży jakiej spodziewa się z nowej produkcji.

A Polish friend of mine kindly translated that last bit for me. That paragraph basically says that the game has a very low budget, so it doesn't need to sell that many to make a profit.

Mixed feelings about this. It being low budget is obviously a bummer (but I think we all knew this anyway, plus what we've seen so far looks good despite the low budget). On the other hand, I'm glad they have realistic expectations regarding sales. I hate it when a game actually does pretty well sales-wise, but the publisher is still unhappy due to unrealistic expectations (example, Sleeping Dogs). If the first one sells well, hopefully they will decide to invest a bit more into the budget for Zwei.
