Sony Talks About Cancelled The Legend of Dragoon 2

THE BUZZ: In announcing the upcoming release of The Legend of Dragoon via PSN, the company also talked about the cancelled sequel.

EGM’s TAKE: So, first of all, yes—Sony Computer Entertainment’s PS1 RPG The Legend of Dragoon is coming as a digital download to the PlayStation Store on May 1st.

Now—on to the cancelled sequel. SCE Worldwide Studios President Shu Yoshida has this to say today on the official PlayStation Blog:

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.

I may be wrong, but I do believe I remember hearing about a proposed sequel to The Legend of Dragoon back in the day. Shame that it never made it out, but nice to see this little bit of acknowledgement for the game.
