Dreaming: Legend of Dragoon

For those of you who may not know what Legend of Dragoon was, shame on you! Legend was a PS1 era JRPG developed by Sony. It was, arguably, one of the better RPGs of that generation and was criminally ignored by the masses. I have been dreaming of a continuation to the story (be it either a prequel or sequel) for a very long time. I'm not going to go into the whole "the story of Legend of Dragoon starts with..." thing. That's what Wikipedia is for. What I'd like to do is give my reasons for why I've been wanting a new LoD for so long. Oh, and there might be a few spoiler-y things here, so you've been warned.



The ending itself doesn't really beg for a sequel, though I'm pretty sure the right story tellers could definitely make one.. The story itself, however, practically demands a prequel. Through the course of LoD, you learn of an ancient war between the humans and Winglies (think of them as a sort of advance human with wings of light). The Winglies had practically every advantage conceivable over the humans. They were faster, stronger, and could fly, so to end he humans made a pact with some dragons to gain their powers (or something like that, it's been a while since I played). That's practically a game in itself. Just call it Legend of Dragoon: The Dragon Campaign (as it was called in the first game)

You also find out during the course of the game that Rose, the Black Dragoon, has been alive the whole time since the end of The Dragon Campaign and was known as The Black Monster for killing "the moon child" every 108 years. There could easily be an action game that delves into some of that history.



Anyway, this has been a dream of mine since I first finished Legend of Dragoon all those years ago. Especially more so since it's just been announced that it will finally be released on the PlayStation Network on May 1st (which just so happens to be the day before my birthday). I sincerely hope as many people will buy it as possible. It would literally be a dream come true if a sequel were to be made based on the amazing sales of this rereleased title.
