A demo of Crimson Dragon has appeared on the Japanese marketplace and was promptly removed but there are always a handful of eagle-eyed gamers who nab things before mistakes can be corrected. One user not only nabbed the demo but recorded  some footage for us all to enjoy.

Many will see Crimson Dragon as the spiritual successor to Panzer Dragoon, not only because of its look and gameplay style but also because Crimson Dragon’s staff boasts creator Yukio Futatsugi, who was the director of the first three Panzer Dragoon games, and composer Saori Kobayashi who also co-scored Panzer Dragoon Saga and Orta. The game is set to be published on XBLA later this year and makes full use of Kinect so unless you own Microsoft’s little black motion controlled box you won’t be able to take to the skies with a Crimson Dragon.
