The Legend of Dragoon re-release due on PSN next month

Classic Shu Yoshida PS1 RPG returns.

Fondly-remembered PS1 RPG The Legend of Dragoon arrives on US PlayStation Store from 1st May, Sony has announced.

The game's producer Shuhei Yoshida - who is now Sony Worldwide Studios boss - broke the news in a post on the PlayStation Blog.

"I still occasionally hear from fans of The Legend of Dragoon, and many want to know if there is a sequel," he wrote.

"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.

"It's great to see the game being prepared for release as a PSone Classic on PSN, which means that fans can revisit the world whenever they want. Maybe it'll make a new fans, too. Long live LOD!"

Alas, a European release has not yet been confirmed, but we're chasing Sony for clarification now.
