While this news entry isn’t strictly on topic, it may very well lead to Panzer Dragoon news in the future.
Sony have announced that they will be expanding their “Game Archives” retro download service to include Playstation 2 games. These Playstation 2 re-releases will be exclusive to Playstation 3; unlike other downloads from Playstation Network they won’t play on the PSP. The first wave of games will arrive on July 25, and the interesting part for Panzer Dragoon fans is that we will be seeing some of the Sega Ages 2500 series games, starting with Dragon Force. Dynamite Dekka (aka Die-Hard Arcade) will be released in August and Gunstar Heroes Treasure Box in September. Sega has shared a trailer for Dragon Force and an image for the other two games.
As many of you will know, Sega also released an enhanced version of the original Panzer Dragoon on the Playstation 2, although it was never released outside of Japan. Will we see Sega Ages 2500 Series Vol. 27: Panzer Dragoon released on Playstation Network? Nothing has been confirmed, but the chances just got significantly higher.
