1001 Video Games
Panzer Dragoon Orta
appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die
by General Editor Tony Mott.
The game was developed by Smilebit
and most of the SEGA
team that worked on the previous Panzer Dragoon
titles had already left the company. Kentaro Yoshida
returned to SEGA partly to ensure the continuity of the series, and to work along with the director who had already worked on Panzer Dragoon Saga
The original Panzer Dragoon
(based on the PC updated version) is included as unlockable extra.
According to the magazine gamesTM (issue #34), all Japanese copies include a hidden English-language option that's automatically selected when playing on a Western Xbox with a mod chip.
