The Legend of Dragoon Finally Coming to PSN in North America

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 myΒ 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.

      • Alex

        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 πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

        • random

          Hey this is random but if you create a USA account can’t you download the game for psn, this is what i used to do with the demos as Australia is always the last to get a game..

      • 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! πŸ˜€

      • Alex

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

      • Alex

        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……… 😐 😐 😐

        • 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 πŸ˜€

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

      • Alex

        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!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

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

          Hopefully they provide me a solid answer!

          • Alex

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

          • No prob! We’re a site that cares about our fans πŸ˜€

          • Alex

            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..:/ :/

          • I’ll let you know the second I hear something back from them. Hopefully with good news. πŸ˜€

          • Alex

            thank u very much !!!!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      • Alex

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

        • I sent a tweet to them asking about a possible EU release…still no response yet πŸ™

          • Alex

            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 πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

          • Will do! πŸ˜€

          • Alex

            i really really really waiting for the game to come in psn and soon too!!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ 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!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

          • 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. πŸ˜€

          • Alex

            yes, i like the songs very much too and its soundtrack, but i miss the actual game, to complete my collection somehow πŸ˜€ :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!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      • Alex

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

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

          • Alex

            hoping u are lucky, i hope something good to come out!!!!!!!!!!!!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  • still nothing about that for europe psn??…i have sended long time ago to shuhei yoshida and he also said that he hoped also to be released in europe…any news of u??…of course maybe i will stop to hope after that…:| 😐 😐
