SEGA Reportedly Developing Panzer Dragoon, Neon Genesis Evangelion and Sakura Wars Games

    More IP revivals seemingly on the way.

    SEGA is reportedly developing new Panzer Dragoon, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Sakura Wars (Sakura Taisen) games, according to new report. All three of these franchises first saw their release on the SEGA Saturn in Japan, with Neon Genesis Evangelion having received its very first video game adaptation on the platform. 

    SEGA’s revival projects for Crazy Taxi, Jet Set Radio, Shinobi, Golden Axe, and Streets of Rage: Revolution quickly went viral after the announcement at The Game Awards 2023. Several trademarks were filed just one week after the event, giving fans hope for even more revivals. Classic SEGA Saturn titles appear to be in the running for revivals and new entries as well.

    Insider Gaming’s new report suggests that new Panzer Dragoon, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Sakura Wars games are currently in early stages of development. Two other games have been greenlit as well, but these titles were not specified. This should be considered a rumor for now, but this could also be a very promising sign of new SEGA projects to come. 

    Panzer Dragoon first launched on March 10, 1995 for the SEGA Saturn in Japan. One year later, the first Neon Genesis Evangelion video game adaptation launched on March 1, 1996 on the same platform. The original Sakura Taisen game released on September 27, 1996 for the SEGA Saturn.
