Forever Entertainment Announce Remakes of Panzer Dragoon I and II: Zwei

Monday, December 10th, 2018

In what can only be described as a surprise announcement, Forever Entertainment (responsible for titles such as Fear Effect: Sedna) have announced they are to co-create and publish remakes of SEGA classics Panzer Dragoon and Panzer Dragoon II: Zwei!

The remakes are planned to include a graphical overhaul and new gameplay features to better suit a modern audience, while maintaining the original story of the games. The first material from the game is planned to be shown in the coming months, with Panzer Dragoon: Remake planned to release in late 2019. The remakes are being produced in tandem with SEGA’s Japanese division.

We’ll keep you up to date when any further news comes out – it’s extremely exciting to see titles from the Saturn era getting some love, and in what sounds like a fairly nice package to boot.

The full press release is available here.

 

Cancelled Shenmue 1 & 2 Remakes Revealed by Digital Foundry

Monday, October 15th, 2018

Digital Foundry have managed to get their hands on some work-in-progress footage of a cancelled Shenmue 1 & 2 remake project. Unlike d3t’s Shenmue I & II, this would have been a complete remake of the game with more detailed assets, textures and lighting. Check out the video below to see a comparison of this footage versus Shenmue I & II:

There’s a full article that breaks down what is being shown in the footage and what it does differently to the eventual release of Shenmue I & II. There’s also some speculation as to why these remakes were cancelled in favour of the upscaled HD ports we eventually got. Digital Foundry suggests the remakes were cancelled due to budget restraints and delays.

Video Spotlight: SEGA Are Teasing The Castle of Illusion Re-Release

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

SEGA have uploaded the following teaser video which clearly hints at the heavily rumoured Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse re-release:

The trailer mentions a Summer 2013 release date but more interesting is that it uses all new assets like the previously leaked “box art”. Could this be a HD remake and not a simple re-release of the Mega Drive original?

Video Spotlight: Cancelled Streets of Rage “Reimagining” Footage Leaks Online UPDATE

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

UPDATE

A new version of the leaked Streets of Rage reimagining footage has been uploaded which now includes sound. The prototype footage features a playable game and is not pre-rendered.

Ruffian Games business and management chief Gary Liddon (who also uploaded this new video) has also revealed more about the game:

“It was something we built very rapidly and represents pre-pre-pre-pre (lots of pres) pre-Alpha quality. Even so it has a certain charm 🙂 What’s the story behind it all? Like a lot of developers we work on a lot of different prototypes, they’re just not usually shown in public. In this case an older version of the same video was leaked last week which came as a bit of a surprise if I’m honest. As it had no sound I thought there wouldn’t be any harm sharing a version with audio. Beyond that there’s not a lot more I can say unfortunately :)”

Sean Noonan has also chimed in to answer a question about why the game was cancelled. His response: “I don’t really have a solid answer to that :(”
