Square says the game's name is subject to change, as "dragging on" isn't the kind of concept you want tied to your exciting action-RPG--especially when it's packed with three types of combat: midair dragon-back blasting, bombing runs, and ground-level swordplay.
On the surface, you might mistake Drag-on for a sequel to Sega's seminal Saturn RPG Panzer Dragoon Saga. Well, it's not. But it does feature a similarly bold visual style, a complex dragon-upgrading system, and shooting sequences. You control Kaim, a valiant young prince with quite the heroic agenda: He must battle an evil empire to avenge his parents' death, rescue his sister, and regain the ability to speak. (Maybe that last one isn't so heroic, after all.)
