Crimson Dragon pre-launch previews and media

Grounding's on-rails shooter for Xbox One.

It’s Xbox One media day. You’ve seen our coverage (of other outlets’ coverage) of Dead Rising 3 and Ryse: Son of Rome. Another Microsoft title coming launch day is the on-rails Crimson Dragon.

GameSpot calls it both a “fresh” and “familair experience for anyone who has played Panzer Dragoon, or any rail shooter.” IGN says it “scratches that Star Fox 64 itch.” And Game Informer says that while their time with the demo didn’t lock its purchase, it definitely peaked their interests.

Watch new gameplay below. View some screenshots at the gallery.
