Vocal fans are still expecting a possible remake for the classic classic The Legend of Dragoon, but what happened to the upcoming rumor remake on PS5?
Rumors started flying about The Legend of Dragoon remake coming from Bluepoint Games last year. With a nod to the excellent remake, the developer first remade the Game of the Grounds to rebuild Shadow of Colossus to great critical success. Many assumed that its next major project would be a remake of the often forgotten JRPG, but nothing has been confirmed as to what its PS5 project is.
Coming to the tail end of PlayStation’s lifecycle in the mid-2000s, The Legend of Dragoon was a JRPG released by Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Studios. The game unfolded during the height of JRPG popularity worldwide, comparing games such as Final Fantasy. Although critics received relatively positive reviews of the game during its launch, JRPG quickly became a cult classic from the outspoken Western fan who loved the game.
Legend of Dragoon is Trending, But Fans Shouldn’t Get Excited
The Legend of Dragoon is trending on Twitter, but fans awaiting a remake or sequel may not want to live up to their expectations.
Many RPG players felt an explosion of excitement this morning when they noticed that PlayStation’s cult classic The Legend of Dragoon was trending on Twitter. Despite being a fan-produced remake of The Legend of Dragoon, nothing completely replaces the real thing. Unfortunately, it seems that fans should not be excited about the remake yet.
Over time, The Legend of Dragoon has become a legendary game for many players. With good fantasy combat mechanics mixed with the best parts of being a Power Ranger, The Legend of Dragoon found a home in the hearts of many fans. The game itself has a simple premise: warriors take the spirits of dragons to use wings and magic in battle.
It even has an active combat system, requiring players to press the time button to maintain an attack combo to the frustration of many young gamers. Tons of great character development, unique dragoon systems, and a large variety of weapons and objects make it easy to see why The Legend of Dragoon is still relevant 20 years later.
