Crimson Dragon Studio Working On Unannounced Project For Nintendo

Posted by Damien McFerran

Platform to be confirmed

Grounding Inc is best known for its much-delayed Xbox title Crimson Dragon, which was originally intended for the 360 but has now been shifted to the Xbox One.

A spiritual successor to Sega's Panzer Dragoon, Crimson Dragon is certainly a title worth making a fuss about — but Grounding Inc's Yukio Futatsugi has revealed that his studio is also working on a piece of software for Nintendo.

Sadly, Futatsugi is unable to divulge any further details on the game, including the platform it is headed for.

We'd personally like to see a full-scale Wii U game, but the company has worked on WiiWare and the 3DS eShop in the past, so there's a good chance it could be a downloadable release. Tell us what you think Grounding Inc is working on by posting a comment below.

It may be a sequel to Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword on the 3ds eshop.

Yeah, I died a little inside when I saw it at E3 as an exclusive on Xbox. I've been a Sega fan for so long, seeing it on Microsoft did eat away at me. I even have Panzer Dragoon Saga, what a masterpiece. I can only hope they make something as amazing as that for Nintendo. This would be the type of third party game I would be looking forward to on the Wii U, or whatever they work on.

Well the game wouldn't even be made with out Microsoft. IT was announced to years ago as collaboration for various well known Japaneses devs to make kinect games. Think something like the Guild series from Level 5.

Interesting, makes me wonder what games will actually utilize the kinects, since I didn't see the kinects used for any of the games that I saw at E3. I could be wrong though.

Excellent, It was bittersweet to see the Panzer Dragoon successor being released on a console I will never own, but who knows, hopefully this Wii U release will be something similar...hmmm a rail shooter on a Nintendo console, Starfox per chance?

I just hope it is for the wii u, Because we really need more good games as fast as they can publish them. With the ps4 and the new x-box on the way Nintendo has its work cut out for them.

Man, Panzer Dragoon Orta was a beautiful game on the Xbox! I absolutely loved it! I hope SEGA revives this awesome franchise on Wii U! It would be awesome!

Now I have a copy of Panzer Dragoon Orta lying over here somewhere. Let's finish collecting that final bonus :D

Is Crimson Dragon even in the Dragoon series or is it a total different franchise with similar gameplay?

Panzer Dragoon was one of the best series SEGA had going, they really need to bring it back. Hopefully one day on 3DS or Wii U. Crimson Dragon looks quite similar, shame its on XBOX.

Really no way to tell. However I would love a good Dragon title to come to the Wii U.

Panzer Dragoon is one of my top ten all time favourite games, I still own my Sega Saturn and all 3 Panzer Dragoon games as there has never been another game like them.

PLEASE bring Crimson Dragon to Wii U

It's a shame we wont ever see Crimson Dragon on the Wii U as it looks fantastic and the type of title that belongs on a Nintendo system.Maybe Nintendo can work out a deal with Sega and give us a real Panzer Dragoon exclusive sequel?Just to annoy Microsoft if nothing else :-) Oh and a sequel to Trickstyle too,that would be great cheers!

Ok thanks. I just wasn't even sure if Sega had a hand in this at all. Thanks for clarifying.

No theres just some key members of the Panzer Dragoon team in Grounding Inc, and it looks like a great game got bored of waiting for it on my 360 though and now I'm definitely not buying it. If Ninty wants something from SEGA though they should give us another Jet Set RADIIIIIIIIIIOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
