Legend of Dragoon 2: The Sequel That Never Took Off.

Legend-of-Dragoon-2-The-Sequel-That-Never-Took-OffAfter some brief discussion about the upcoming re-release of PSX classic Legend of Dragoon on the PSN Network, President of SCE's Worldwide Studios confirmed that Legend of Dragoon 2 was, at one time, in development.

Legend of Dragoon was Sony's answer to Final Fantasy VII, and part of the big role-playing game boom that began in the mid-to-late 1990s. The game was sprawled across four discs and featured gorgeous cutscenes, grand boss fights, and introduced a brand new IP that never took off. In today's blog post, Shu Yoshida mentions that people still ask him about a potential sequel.

"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," Yoshida continues. "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."

Any possibility that we would see a sequel reform is unlikely at this point. The series has been out of gamer's hands for over 10 years, and while resurgence in old IPs isn't anything new to the video game world, the RPG population is more focused on massive multiplayer online RPGs.

What do you think? Any possibility we could see a sequel? Would you play it? What are your fondest memories of the game? Tell us in the comments section! Check out to link below for more on the development of LoD.
