Microsoft has announced another batch of Original Xbox games that will be made playable on the Xbox One, and Panzer Dragoon Orta is one of them! Released back in 2002, it was the last game in the main Panzer Dragoon series and arguably one of the best railshooters ever made. Fusing elements from both the previous railshooter games and the RPG Panzer Dragoon Saga, Panzer Dragoon Orta offered an impressive amount of replayability with plenty of unlockable content, including the PC port of the original Panzer Dragoon!
According to Microsoft, all of the newly announced Original Xbox games will have up to 4X the pixel count on Xbox One and Xbox One S, and up to 16X the pixel count on Xbox One X. It’ll be interesting to see the results of that for Panzer Dragoon Orta, which supported an (at the time impressive) 480P resolution combined with a 60fps framerate.
Starting April 17, you’ll be able to play the game through the original disc if you already own it, or you can purchase it digitally in the Microsoft Store.
