The Legend of Dragoon Coming To PSN On May 1st, Yoshida Mentions Canceled Sequel

A classic PS1 RPG, The Legend of Dragoon, will be coming to the PSN in the near future.

On the PS Blog, SCE Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida announced that four-disc PS1 RPG The Legend of Dragoon, originally released in North America in the year 2000, will be re-released on the PlayStation Network as a PSOne Classic on May 1st. No pricing details were revealed for the game.

Of note in Yoshida’s comments about the game is that he mentions that a sequel was in pre-production, but eventually 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.
