The Legend of Dragoon, a JRPG cult classic, may very well get the remake or sequel fans have been hoping for since its initial 2000 release.

Most of us remember Dart, Shana and Rose, right?

Sony Computer Entertainment America recently renewed the registered trademark for the game, which could indicate intent to reuse it in some way. Of course, like some trademark filings, it could also just be good accounting on Sony’s part. Still, The Legend of Dragoon went live on the North American PSN on May 1 and has sold respectably on the service, so prospects could be good.

For those who aren’t aware, The Legend of Dragoon was an epic, four-disc PS1 RPG that made our list of Top 10 PS1 Games, and it’s not hard to see why. Despite mixed reviews upon its initial release, The Legend of Dragoon was simply ahead of its time. It has an innovative combat system and high production values, including graphics and music that still hold up well today. However, a previous attempt at a sequel to this game was cancelled and never revealed until recently before its PSN release.

In the meantime, let’s hope SCEA has something to say in the future about The Legend of Dragoon.

About Will Whitehurst

Will joined the Operation Rainfall Campaign soon after news broke of that infamous French interview about Xenoblade. Subsequently, he got actively involved and became a staff member in July/August 2011. He is currently the head of the Japanese translation team, and loves to play, discuss, debate and learn more about games. Will gravitates towards unconventional action games and RPGs, but plays pretty much anything except Madden. He is also currently attending college, honing his Japanese skills and preparing for medical school. (Coincidentally, Trauma Center is one of his favorite game series of all time.)

    Oh it would be a dream come true if it did get a sequel or remake.

    Wasn’t Drag On Dragoon (Drakenguard 1,2 on PS2) supposed to be some kind of sequel for Legend Of Dragoons?

    • No, no it was not, compeltely unrelated Companies, Series and gameplay styles.

      Those were not sequels. They were only released on the PS2. Sony had no other hand in their creation. In fact, they were a square enix game. Legend of Dragoon is a first party game developed by Sony. That being said, I doubt Sony would sign over their only (or what I presume to be their only) RPG game. I myself am a extreme LoD fanatic. Although, I have not been able to explore and discover everything about the game due to the fact that I have a defective copy, I have made due by forming a perfect team with Dart, Miranda, and Kongol. If you think for a second that anyone here will accept those PoS Square Enix Games as the sequel for our beloved LoD, you are about as crazy as Apple with their spinning beach ball of death. Good day sir, or Madam!

    We did see this trademark thing with The Last Story before, and we know what localization movement was spurred up despite that later on…

    That said, if a sequel to The Legend of Dragoon were to be put back into preproduction, I would be SO HAPPY on a level that would make Yoshi proud. Like, you have no idea, man.

  • I can’t believe it! I really hope this game gets a sequel/prequel

    Sweet! Legend of Dragoon is one of the only old school JRPG games that is not Final Fantasy that I can proudly say I played.

  • would be nice ta see a sequel.

  • Ongan San

    Something’s gonna happen! Do you remember when someone find out a domain called finalfantasyviipc.com and some files for FF7 on Steam’s database? Everyone get hyped and one or two months later Final Fantasy VII really announced for PC.
    I think we’re dealing with a similiar situation here folks! Someone finds out Legend of Dragoon’s trademark has renewed and then… BOOM! A REMAKE! Or at least Dart for Playstation All-Star Battle Royale…
    I’M HYPED

  • That game was by far the best game I had ever played and still play to this day! making a sequal or prequal would be fantastic!!!! One of the only games I have actually played threw 100% without getting bored mid way threw or quitting

  • Brian Mertel
