Panzer Dragoon series
Group DescriptionPanzer Dragoon is a series of games united by a common setting and revolving around the adventures of dragon-riding warriors. Initially developed by Team Andromeda, the series mostly comprises rail shooters, with the notable exception of the role-playing game Panzer Dragoon Saga (1998).
The setting of the game is a fantasy post-apocalyptic world, which was once dominated by a powerful and technologically advanced race known as the Ancients. Thousand years ago, the Ancients created monsters they used in wars, but the ensuing cataclysms have brought their downfall, ruining their civilization and reducing their population to a few survivors. However, some of their monsters have survived, continuing to threaten the existence of the world. A faction known as The Empire has found a way to harvest some of the technology used by the Ancients, which it uses primarily for military purposes.
A distinct feature of the series is the usage of a fictional language (commonly named "Panzerese") in the cutscenes of the game.
