Ever since PSVR was announced and especially since playing it I've always thought the Panzer Dragoon games would be perfect for VR, and now it's happening. "Panzer Dragoon Voyage Record" will remake levels from the first three Sega Saturn Panzer Dragoon games (1, Zwei, and Azel/Saga), but as a "completely new work" made for VR headsets and controllers. The game is being developed by Tokyo-based Wildman (series creator Yukio Futatsugi has said he's not involved). It's slated for release by March 2021, with release platforms yet to be announced.

This is in addition to the previously announced non-VR remake of the original Panzer Dragoon for Switch, PC, and Stadia by Polish developer Forever Entertainment, which is slated to be followed by a remake of Panzer Dragoon Zwei.

I've been a huge fan of the original Panzer Dragoon trilogy ever since first playing the first game on my brand-new Sega Saturn in summer '95, so I'm stoked to see them getting some remake love. I just played the first one for the first time in several years a few days ago, and though the polygons and textures show their age the gameplay, visual aesthetic and world design are fantastic to this day. It's a pity they're apparently not remaking the first two games in VR in their entirety as I'd love to play every level and experience the story in full.
Having only used the PS Move controller for Beat Saber, I wonder how the tracking will be for shooting sideways and behind, and if they'll have to adjust the level design to compensate. (This assuming it comes to PSVR in the first place.) Anyone played any shooters on PSVR and can comment?
