    The Legend of Dragoon coming to the Store 5/1

    The Legend of Dragoon Coming to PSN: RPG Classic Reborn May 1st

    The Legend of Dragoon was one of the last projects I worked on as a producer in Japan Studio and by far the biggest team I managed hands-on. We started the project in 1996 with only a handful of people, hired one by one as we were building up teams for Ape Escape, The Legend of Dragoon, and Ico simultaneously. During the peak of the game’s development, we had well over 100 people working internally in the studio on The Legend of Dragoon — for a PSone game! We had roughly 10 artists dedicated just to drawing concept art for this gigantic RPG. As the game contained lots of pre-rendered maps and full-motion videos, we were forced to spread the content over four CDs, which was the maximum number of discs that the fattest PSone game case could hold.

    It took nearly three years to build the team and develop the game, which was released in December 1999 in Japan and June 2000 in the US. As I moved from Japan to the US in March 2000, I was able to personally handle the game’s release in both Japan and the US. Following the game’s launch in Japan, we learned from players that certain parts of the game were too difficult. The team re-balanced the gameplay for the release outside of Japan, so the US version was the complete version of the game that we were all proud of.

    I still occasionally hear from fans of The Legend of Dragoon, and many want to know if there is a sequel. LOD2 was put into preproduction after I left the Japan Studio, but was eventually cancelled for some unknown reason, and the team members moved on to different projects. Some people still work in the Japan Studio, so we talk about the memories of developing LOD when we see each other at company functions.

    It’s great to see the game being prepared for release as a PSone Classic on PSN, which means that fans can revisit the world whenever they want. Maybe it’ll make a new fans, too. Long live LOD!

    This. Seriously...the powers that be have made this JRPG addict giddy. Sorry if this has been posted already (as I usually avoid posting news stuff like this), but I'm a little too overexcited at the present moment to bother using the search function.

    Thoughts?

    Thats awesome but i rather have a sequel for the ps3... underrated game which i thought was better than any final fantasy game out there

    I remember the battle music sounding like for whom the bell tolls by metallica

    Shieeeeet, seriously? I've played this game three times and was never able to finish it so maybe now this will be my chance. I remember the combat system being awesome.

    I remember playing this game back in the old days. Pretty fancy graphics for its time, and the battle system was really fun. I wonder if they will give this one a HD touch, like you know, what they did with Shadow of the Colossus/ICO?

    I've still got my copy so I'll probably pass on it unless it's got trophies. At least now people who never played it can finally get their hands on this awesome game.

    Spent alot of hours on this Great Game. Not to sure weather it would be worth having from the PSN as PS1 games just don't look that good! However a sequel on PS3 would be a better option, lets hope thats the way they go and soon!

    At least slap on some HD and re-release it!!! If they can do that to FFX, then why not this?

    This is fantastic. I had the demo for this game back in the day, but never got a chance to play the full game. I've always heard good things though, can't wait to try it out.

    It's way easier to upscale a PS2 game so the graphics look like HD graphics than a PS1 game. Just look at how bad in-game graphics were for games like FFVIII or Metal Gear Solid.

    I didn't get to finish this game along with Legend of Mana because I had tons of games to play with back then and I don't know which one I was going to play till the end. When I decided to play it again, there's already a crack on the disc

    I had nothing but a memory card and the 4th disc, and I still played it up until my BC PS3 died.

    I remember finishing it two or three times. I still have my copy in the house here somewhere although I don't think I'll be buying it again from the store.

    I still remember when this came out. I played it non-stop and was very disappointed when the sequel was canned.

    I almost cried when I beat the game and the ending cinematic cut out and crashed my PlayStation. I had to beat it again after letting my system cool down and the final boss was a douche.
