About Panzer Dragoon Saga

Panzer Dragoon Saga was originally released in Japan on January 29, 1998 for the SEGA Saturn. It brought the epic Panzer Dragoon world into the realm of 3D RPGs, whose popularity exploded globally in the late 90s. The U.S. and European releases were available in limited quantities and today enjoy a status as a rare game item highly sought after by game collectors. Panzer Dragoon Saga was preceded by two rail shooters, Panzer Dragoon (1995) and Panzer Dragoon II Zwei (1996). A sequel, Panzer Dragoon Orta, brought the series back into the realm of rail shooters and was released for the Microsoft Xbox in December 2002.
