Apparently Sony’s been following me on on Twitter. Just today, President of SCE Worldwide Studios Shu Yoshida announced that The Legend of Dragoon is going to be available to download on May 1st, 2012. The Sony Computer Entertainment JRPG has a cult following (which includes myself), but has more or less languished in obscurity since the planned sequel was cancelled. Now we can all relive the adventures of Dart and friends, or experience it for the first time.
Does this mean that some of the great characters from the game will make it into Sony’s rumored cross-over fighter? I hope so. What I want even more though, is for the PS Vita to support PSone Classics. Why are we still waiting for that functionality? I’d be more upset, but, you know, The Legend of Dragoon.
