Editor’s Note April 2 – Yes, this article was an April Fool’s Day prank. We’re sorely disappointed too and wish Sony would do the right thing and revisit The Legend of Dragoon. What you see below is the original post.
It was in an announcement via the PlayStation Blog that Marco Thrush, president of Bluepoint Games, announced that the studio was working on the development of a revamped version of the famous RPG game from SCE Japan, the defunct JAPAN Studio which closed its doors in April 2021, The Legend of Dragoon.
Moreover, it was announced that not only the game was under development but with the help of the Asobi Team, the project was on schedule and would be released later this year. While we’ve reached out to Sony for comment, they did not reply by publication.
“We at Bluepoint Games are very proud to announce we have been working on The Legend of Dragoon. To say it is an honour to work on the iconic story of Dart Feld and the Dragon Riders is an understatement. This is a huge challenge that we have been working on for several months and we believe that fans of the original game will be delighted to learn that we have decided to keep the same mechanics of the traditional game,” said Marco Thrush, President of Bluepoint Games.
Who better than Bluepoint Games, who knew how to adapt Shadow of the Colossus and Demon’s Souls, to pull off such a grandiose tour de force as adapting The Legend of Dragoon?
Having worked with JAPAN Studio for the Shadow of the Colossus remake, they were able to begin the development of the role-playing game as work on Demon’s Souls wrapped up, which allowed the studio to also be able to reveal the game’s release date and release date. This is scheduled for release on December 2, when the original game was released on the original PlayStation console in 1999.
In an interview with IGN, Thrush said “Our team is a very highly experienced team, the average experience among most people is about 15 years, and all of them come from original development. It’s not like we’re a bunch of developers that got trained up on making remasters and remakes. We have that original game development mindset in our hearts, and that’s what we’re now ready, finally ready with the support of Sony to push forward and show what we can do, and show what PlayStation can do.”
And with that said — April Fools!
This just makes me sad… joking about stuff like this should be off limits.
This is cruel. I *really* want a remake on current gen.
I scared my wife because I literally shouted in joy. If only I’d read the last line before I started freaking out…Absolutely crushed
Same here. I was so excited and then…. Man that’s cruel
Maybe it’s stupid because it’s just a game, but I’m legitimately tearing up because I’m so disappointed that this is fake. April fools is one thing, but take the article down now. It’s been 4 months, you’re just a cruel person at this point. 🙁
Amen. fml this was a rollercoaster, altho when I started reading I thought this has to be a joke right? Sad to see I was right when I saw the date, didnt even have to read the whole article
What a doucheeee
How evil of you.
I HOPE YOU SUFFER!!
i saw the date of the post and knew it was fake before i even clicked and still read for some wierd reason. give us this game…
I wanted it to be true so bad
piece of shit i hate u :'(
Sorry folks! I know this was an “April’s Fool” and don’t worry… I think I’d be the first to buy a remaster/remake and even any Collector’s Edition if there was!
Luv ya all!
You should be fired for leaving this article up
If all else fail, use fire! 🙂
There are some things you just don’t joke about. Your parents should be disappointed they raised such a cruel person.
Please take this down. I can’t fully describe how excited and then sad I was. This is Google’s answer to “Will they make a Legend of Dragoon remake?” and it’s just about the cruelest answer.
as a player of the origonal game, this physically hurt me, a remaster would make more money then any origonal game made today.
you have a sick, sick sense of humor, my sir. Kudos.
Having said that, F*** you. Have a good day. Hope next years April Fools is equal or better.
WTF give us this game for real already you remake stupid crap noone wants to play why not a game you can actually make money off ffs……
Dude seriously go fuq urself
Damn got me
This domain will now forever be logged on my router and through my ISP as malicious. Will never be reading anything you author again. Absolutely a trash human being
Dudes chill out, take a joke lol
