Legend Of Dragoon Becomes A Digital RPG Treat On May 1
Oh, happy, happy day.
As most RPG fans will tell you, The Legend of Dragoon was a memorable experience. Although it didn't necessarily score off the charts with critics, the game managed to generate a fiercely loyal following. And now, it's coming back...
In a great post by SCE President of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida over at the PlayStation Blog, we learn that the classic PS1 RPG will be coming to the PlayStation Network on May 1. It's really cool to see Yoshida reminisce:
The project began in 1996 and the number of people working on it swelled to over 100, which was basically unheard of in those days. The game launched on four discs (even Final Fantasy VII only had three) and it's also interesting to note that the team "re-balanced" the difficulty for its Western release. They did that quite often in that era, actually.
Also, here's another cool tidbit:
"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."
He finishes the blog post by saying, "Love live LOD!" And we couldn't possibly agree more.
