Project Draco Retitled as “Crimson Dragon”

on February 26, 2012 4:30 PM

Grounding studio’s aerial battle Kinect title, formerly dubbed ‘Project Draco,’ has been officially retitled Crimson Dragon. Specific gameplay details remain scant, but the game has been pitched as a rail shooter, and the overarching goal since its inception was to create a Kinect game about flying.

The project is being led by Yukio Futatsugi, creator of Sega’s Panzer Dragoon series, and his influence is apparent in every screenshot. If the team manages to utilize the Kinect well this game could bring a dash of fantasy flavor to the shooter genre, which would be a stylistic breath of fresh air for players who have seen enough rubble strewn cities and waist-high walls in their time. Check after the break to see the new screenshots.

No release date has yet been announced, but Kinect users can expect to see this title on Xbox Live Arcade before the year is out.

He enjoys games with a strong emphasis on story, which typically fall into the RPG, Action/Adventure, or Horror genres, though he also has a soft spot for fighting games and has been known, when feeling saucy, to shred on some Guitar Hero or Rock Band.
