Sony has confirmed a May 1st North American release of the PS One classic rpg The Legend of Dragoon. Shu Yoshida, the head of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios made the announcement on the PS Blog today.
One of the last projects he produced under Japan Studio in 1996, Yoshida revealed that after The Legend of Dragoon’s 2000 release a sequel to the title was planned but was later canceled.
“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.”
No pricing for the title was shared at this time but like most PS One Classics rereleased on the PlayStation Store, The Legend of Dragoon will likely set you back anywhere from $4.99 to $9.99. Well worth the price.
