The game shared the Best Intro Sequence of the Year award with Criticom in Game Players 1995 Holiday Edition (Vol. 8, No. 13)
One of Panzer Dragoon's major artistical influences was Moebius' (Jean Giraud) Arzach, a comic book series created by the French artist. He even contributed in the creative process of Team Andromeda's game with original artwork.
As with many successful videogame series, an animé OAV adaptation was released in 1996 based on the universe and characters of Panzer Dragoon.
The game's soundtrack is actually Audio CD format. If you put it in a normal Audio CD player, you can listen to it. And mind you, its a great one.
