As with the NTSC version, the PAL version of Panzer Dragoon Saga had quite a limited production run and has become similarly rare.

In this version of Panzer Dragoon Saga the four discs fit inside two normal-sized Saturn game cases, each of which has a large piece of Panzer Dragoon Saga artwork on its back, and these two cases slot into a separate cardboard box. (PAL gamers may have noticed that the Saturn version of Riven was packaged in the same way.)

The PAL version of Panzer Dragoon Saga is not actually PAL optimised, so when played on a PAL Saturn it runs slower than the NTSC versions of the game. This causes small graphical glitches to occur in some cut-scenes, too. However, this version of the game does run perfectly on an NTSC-J or NTSC Saturn (provided that you have a way to play imports, of course).

If you try to play this version of the game on an NTSC-J or NTSC Saturn using an Action Replay, a “PLEASE REMOVE THE CARTRIDGE” message will pop up on-screen and the game will not load. You can avoid this problem if you input a specific Action Replay code, detailed in the Panzer Dragoon Saga Action Reply Codes article. This version of the game is also compatible with the Saturn Floppy Drive.

Panzer Dragoon Saga save files can be mixed and matched with different versions of the game. For example, you can use disc 1 of the PAL version, and carry on playing your save file using disc 2 of the NTSC version with no issues.
