The Legend of Dragoon Finally Coming to PSN in North America

April 11, 2012

News

The original PlayStation was notorious for their numerous and classic RPG titles. While Final Fantasy is the most common franchise of the genre, there was one particular RPG that garnered a cult following, The Legend of Dragoon. For years, fans have been demanding that the game be brought to the PSN as a PS1 classic. While Japan received the PSN version of the game back on December 22nd, 2010, the US never got a digital version of it. Well, thanks to Shu Yoshida, President of SCE Worldwide Studios, making a post on the PlayStation Blog, he confirmed that we will indeed be getting the game via PSN. Now for fans of the game who have been dying for this to be released on PSN, I’m sure you’re wondering how much longer you have to wait now that it is confirmed. Well, have your PSN wallet ready because it will release on May 1st.

To be honest, I was never much of an RPG fan, especially those with turn-based battles. However, The Legend of Dragoon was one of the few rare RPGs that I was able to get into and have been clamoring myself for a PSN version of it. Looks like we only have to wait less than a month until we can get our hands on it. Can’t wait to hear that battle music start playing again (the one I posted in my Top 10 PS One Soundtracks article).

Did you ever play The Legend of Dragoon? Sound off in the comments below!

      I’m sure there will be. It’s only a matter of time before Europe gets it as well. I’ll let you know if I come across a time frame of a European release.

        i hope so…it’s unfair a bit because na gets more games, and some doesn’t come in europe, i can’t wait to download it and install it..thank u btw 😀 😀 😀

      • Glacier928 Says:

        No problem Alex. Thanks for providing your comment!

        I’m sure it will eventually come to EU. It was released in Japan roughly a year and half ago and NA is just getting it now, on May 1st. I really can’t see Sony Computer Entertainment Europe not localizing the game on the EU PSN in the near future.

        I’m stoked to finally get it because I only played the beginning of it back in the day. I’m hoping the PS Vita gets the firmware update to play PS1 games on there soon so I can bring it on the go! 😀

      • Alex Says:

        hope it will be a bit sooner no between na release and eu if it’s going to come in eu!!! 😀 😀 😀 :D……..i really hope so and not to get disapointed in eu!!!! 😀 😀 😀

      • Alex Says:

        i think, maybe there isn’t any planned europe release in the psn, maybe because the game wasn’t going so well, in the sales in europe……… 😐 😐 😐

      • Glacier928 Says:

        Hmm…even if the sales weren’t the strongest in Europe, I don’t see why that would affect them bringing it to PSN. There are a bunch of PSOne Classics on PSN that make you wonder, “Why is this on here?” haha 😀

        Don’t lose hope. I’m sure The Legend of Dragoon will make its way to the EU PSN 😀

      • Alex Says:

        i hope so, but that shu yoshida, didn’t make any announcement about bringing the game in europe maybe, but even if it is to come, maybe expect it near december idk, i just say it as a calculation i have done from release dates , that was in the wikipedia, when the game 1st gone out …i would really like it to come sooner inside european psn!!! 😀 😀 😀

      • Glacier928 Says:

        I’ll try to make a shout out to Sony about a possible EU PSN release for Legend of Dragoon! 😀

        Hopefully they provide me a solid answer!

      • Alex Says:

        wow, can u do that???..will be great and hope the news are even greater, thank u 😀 😀 😀

      • Glacier928 Says:

        No prob! We’re a site that cares about our fans 😀

      • Alex Says:

        i hope u can learn something more, i have also send email myself, but they didn’t knew something, of course i have send mail to playstation support..:/ :/

      • Glacier928 Says:

        I’ll let you know the second I hear something back from them. Hopefully with good news. 😀

      • Alex Says:

        thank u very much !!!!!! 😀 😀 😀

      • Alex Says:

        still nothing right???

      • Glacier928 Says:

        Unfortunately no. 😦

      • Alex Says:

        well, maybe we have to take it decision, isn’t going to come in europe……:S

      • Alex Says:

        can’t wait, to hear the news if u learn from them, hope any answer come soon!!! 😀 😀 😀

      • Glacier928 Says:

        I sent a tweet to them asking about a possible EU release…still no response yet 😦

      • Alex Says:

        well, keep waiting hope, hope they will reply soon…..btw better also send tweets to shu yoshida too, to see fo himself he has fans of the game in europe too 😀 😀 😀

      • Glacier928 Says:

        Will do! 😀

      • Alex Says:

        i really really really waiting for the game to come in psn and soon too!!!! 😀 😀 :D..it doesn’t mean that i don’t have other game that i like too, but i miss the game for all that it has and two elements i like most, the knight period and the transformations the swords, anyway all about that maybe!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

      • Glacier928 Says:

        Haha I hear ya! I actually mentioned The Legend of Dragoon in my “Top 10 PSOne Soundtracks” article in the “Top 10” section of the site. I think the song posted there will bring back memories for you. 😀

      • Alex Says:

        yes, i like the songs very much too and its soundtrack, but i miss the actual game, to complete my collection somehow 😀 :D….and besides i find it unfair since na has so many titles and europe has few maybe a bit….i’m just optional fan maybe but i say that because also other fans say that too!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

      • Alex Says:

        still no signs of reply yet???….maybe the news aren’t going to be so well maybe……..:| 😐 😐

      • Glacier928 Says:

        I just tweeted to Yoshida again today about it…hoping for a reply soon!

      • Alex Says:

        hoping u are lucky, i hope something good to come out!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀 😀 😀
