Wildman Has "No Plans Whatsoever" to Develop Non-VR Version of Panzer Dragoon

Published by Solo Wing .

Wildman has confirmed that there are no plans to develop a non-VR version of Panzer Dragoon Voyage Record and urges fans to support the project if they want to see the return of Panzer Dragoon Saga.

On Twitter, LycicalMagicalJay asked if there will be a non-VR version of the game:

Will there be a non VR version for Panzer Dragoon Voyage Record? Some of us suffer from motion sickness and we certainly want to support all Panzer Dragoon games. A non VR game would reach a wider audience as well. Just wondering.

To which the official Panzer Dragoon Voyage Record account replied:

We have no plans whatsoever to develop a non-VR version of Panzer Dragoon, as we believe it should be made in VR. There is also the principle of good faith that there are developers who are developing non-VR versions of original and Zwei.

Motion sickness will be technically solved with the newest and upcoming VR HMDs.

The question of a Panzer Dragoon Saga remake also continues to be brought up by fans. While neither Forever Entertainment or Wildman Inc are currently working on a remake of Saga, Wildman hopes that sales of Panzer Dragoon Voyage Record increase the chances of a Panzer Dragoon Saga remake:

If you want to see the return of Saga, please support our project.

He went to on to say:

Franchise sales affect the way IP is handled.

This is common knowledge.

Panzer Dragoon Voyage Record is the only AZEL/Saga franchise that exists today. Unlike the fake images that circulated last year.

It should noted that this last part about Wildman’s interest in continuing the Panzer Dragoon series, with Panzer Dragoon Voyage Record as a stepping stone, is not news. In his interview with 4Gamer last year, Wildman stated that his goal with Panzer Dragoon Voyage Record is to continue the series based on how well the game performs and the attention it gets.

My recommendation is that fans support both the Forever Entertainment remakes and the upcoming Panzer Dragoon Voyage Record from Wildman Inc. Even though VR isn’t mainstream, the niche nature of VR allows Panzer Dragoon Voyage Record to stand out within the library of existing VR titles; there isn’t anything quite like Panzer Dragoon already in VR.

It’s worth noting that in 2017, Yukio Futatusgi talked about how rail shooters and VR were very compatible and was even considering making a VR rail shooter himself.
