Crimson Dragon, an Xbox One exclusive is a upcoming rail shooter video game to be published for Xbox Live Arcade. Crimson Dragon takes place on a recently colonized planet inhabited by dragons, which humans have since become able to ride and control.
The game is seen as a spiritual successor to the Panzer Dragoon series, not only because of its similar gameplay but also because of its returning staff; creator Yukio Futatsugi was the director of the first three Panzer Dragoon games, and composer Saori Kobayashi also co-scored Panzer Dragoon Saga and Orta.
Crimson Dragon originally required the Kinect sensor to play; however the game now controls using the gamepad using a dual analog set up, but some kinect functionality has been confirmed, but was not demoed at E3. The game features six types of dragons, over 100 skills, and three-player online co-op. Dragons can be leveled up by feeding them food earned during missions
