Sega is Reportedly Working on Panzer Dragoon, Evangelion, and Sakura Wars Games

According to a recent report from Insider Gaming’s Tom Henderson, SEGA is working on multiple upcoming titles as part of its  “Super Game” initiative which was recently revealed during The Game Awards. According to Henderson, the publisher is working on a Sakura Wars game, a new installment in the Panzer Dragoon, and surprisingly, a Neon Genesis Evangelion game. According to the report, all three games are currently in early stages of development. The latest installment in the Panzer Dragoon series, Panzer Dragoon Orta, launched back in December 19, 2002 for the original Xbox, and the latest Sakura Wars is the Sakura wars reboot which first launched back in December 12, 2019 for PlayStation 4. However, its worth noting that SEGA has never developed  a title based on the Evangelion series.  The publisher has yet to confirm any of these claims.

During The Game Awards, Sega released a new trailer announcing that it is rebooting several of its classic and beloved titles including Jet Set Radio, Streets of Rage, Golden Axe, Shinobi, and Crazy Taxi. The trailer shows gameplay of each remake including their remade models and graphics. Additionally, the trailer confirms more remakes will follow.


Details for the recently announced reboots via SEGA:

The upcoming projects, spanning a range of genres, are currently in different stages of development and will release over the next several years. The first of these games will be based on the following legacy franchises:

Crazy Taxi Franchise

A whacky, high-octane driving adventure series where players must weave through traffic in an open play environment to deliver passengers to their destinations before time runs out.

Golden Axe Franchise

A “hack and slash”-style series with close melee combat set in a fantasy world of beasts, swords and magic.

Jet Set Radio Franchise

This franchise combines action packed traversal around vibrant Tokyo-to with skating, self-expression through graffiti, street culture and rebellious themes.

Shinobi Franchise

A series that utilizes ninja shuriken, ninjutsu, special attacks and more to defeat enemies in a mix of side-scrolling action and challenging environments.

Streets of Rage Franchise

A “beat ’em up”-style series that pairs fast-paced fist fighting with fresh music set in a lawless urban environment.
