Panzer Dragoon Soars Onto Xbox

SAN FRANCISCO – (January 14, 2003) – SEGA® of America, Inc. today announced the release of the highly-anticipated "Panzer Dragoon ORTA™" exclusively for the Xbox™ video game system from Microsoft. Set in a surreal apocalyptic future, "Panzer Dragoon ORTA" delivers a deep sci-fi storyline and intense, cinematic aerial combat, challenging gamers to take control of a giant dragon and fight to save humanity from the brink of extinction. "Panzer Dragoon ORTA" features mind-blowing 360-degree aerial combat onboard a powerful dragon as players battle through more than 10 stunning environments, including chaotic burning villages, a nightmarish dragon incubator facility and the kaleidoscopic heart of the planet’s network infrastructure. With the ability to unleash devastating "berserk" attacks and morph between three offensive and defensive dragon forms in real time, gamers will need speed, strategy and skill to save the world. The fourth game in the legendary Panzer Dragoon series, "Panzer Dragoon ORTA" continues the epic story from the previous games and introduces a new heroine, Orta. Enslaved by a shadowy force that rules over humanity with a sinister arsenal of bio-mechanical weapons, Orta is freed from her cell by a dragon that takes her on a quest to discover her mysterious past and save mankind. "SEGA’s Panzer Dragoon series has long been one of video games’ most revered franchises, thrilling fans with its cinematic blend of fast action, surreal artistry and grand scale," said Mike Fischer, vice president entertainment marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. "The power of Xbox has enabled SEGA to create the most fully-realized Panzer Dragoon game yet. Longtime fans of the series and newcomers alike will be blown away." Developed by SEGA’s Smilebit studio, "Panzer Dragoon ORTA" expands upon the characters and story of the first three games in the series, "Panzer Dragoon™," "Panzer Dragoon Zwei" and "Panzer Dragoon Saga" originally released for the SEGA Saturn™. The game also features its own in-game language, "Panzereese" which blends Greek, Latin, German, Japanese and English to round out a completely immersive game world. "SEGA has produced another successful follow-up to the Panzer Dragoon series," said Ed Fries, vice president, Microsoft Games. "When coupled with the powerful capabilities of Xbox, "Panzer Dragoon ORTA" is far superior to its competition. The graphical advantage is evident in every combat scenario, from aerial coverage to detailed animation." The game includes dozens of branching paths and unlockable surprises, including the complete original version of "Panzer Dragoon," hidden characters, sub-scenarios, concept art and a full encyclopaedia of the Panzer Dragoon universe, with detailed information about characters, enemies and the game’s rich mythology.
