Crimson Dragon demo accidentally released, recorded


7:30 PM on 01.03.2013



A demo for Panzer Dragoon spiritual successor Crimson Dragon somehow made it on to the Japanese Xbox Live Marketplace and before being removed, YouTube user Draikin1 managed to download it and record a playthrough, viewable above. This slice of gameplay isn't exactly new, having been reportedly playable at PAX East 2012, but its inadvertent release is curious.

I had completely forgotten Crimson Dragon hadn't come out yet. At this point, it could either be one of the last "core" Kinect games or one of the first motion-controlled titles for the next Microsoft console -- either option seems plausible to me. While I don't see a game like this achieving mainstream success as is, it could probably perform well enough given that it was an Xbox Live Arcade title, last we heard. A decent-looking one, at that.

Crimson Dragon is neat, messy, and not entirely on-rails

For some reason, Crimson Dragon feels like the weirdest Xbox One launch title. Maybe that can be attributed to the spiritual Panzer Dragoon sequel's tumultuous development (from 360 Kinect exclusive to budget, $20 Xbox One ga...more

I may be the only one who is excited for Crimson Dragon

[Update: it appears as if it'll be launching for $19.99. Nice!] Crimson Dragon hasn't been getting a lot of good buzz. After a tumultuous 360 development cycle, the now Xbox One launch title is nearly here, and this trailer ...more

Crimson Dragon feels like a shaky mess

Crimson Dragon has seen quite the schizophrenic development cycle. For a while it was an Xbox 360 title, now it's Xbox One. It's appeared to be solely a Kinect experience, but now that seems up in the air. At one point,...more

Look alive boys, Crimson Dragon is not dead

Remember that game? You know, that Xbox Live Arcade Kinect shooter that looks like Panzer Dragoon being made by many of the guys from Panzer Dragoon. It looked to be one of if not the most impressive Kinect game to date, unti...more

There's going to be a Fruit Ninja Kinect 2

A ratings board listing has outed the existence of Fruit Ninja Kinect 2. You cool with that? Fruit Ninja was one of the rare titles for Xbox 360 that made decent use of the motion-sensing device, so it makes sense that the ne...more

You can buy PC compatible, standalone Kinect v2 for $200

Microsoft's Phil Spencer on Kinect: 'consumers love the device, they'll buy it'

As much as people make fun of Kinect, it sold a lot of units on the Xbox 360 as an add-on. On the Xbox One -- they didn't have a choice -- they had to buy it. But as of a few weeks ago Microsoft had a change of heart, and dec...more
