The Legend of Dragoon 2023-05-25

The Legend of Dragoon is a role-playing video game that was developed by Japan Studio and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. It was made available on PlayStation in Japan in 1999, North America in 2000, and Europe in 2001. The game is set in a high fantasy world called Endiness, and it follows the story of Dart, the protagonist, and a group of warriors who attempt to prevent the destruction of the world. The player controls a party of 3D character models through pre-rendered and linear environments. Combat in the game uses a combination of turn-based mechanics and real-time commands. Additionally, the game features a unique quick time event called "addition" that requires the player to press a button when two squares converge during each attack.


Development for The Legend of Dragoon began in 1996 and took three years to complete. The game was made by a production team of over one hundred people and cost $16 million, which was notably high for that time. The game's use of realistic CGI cut scenes drew attention from the press. Upon release, The Legend of Dragoon received mixed reviews, with critics unfavorably comparing it to the Final Fantasy series. Despite this, the game has garnered a cult following and has sold more than one million copies worldwide, with the majority of sales coming from North America. An album of the game's soundtrack was released in 2000, along with a novel and manga that were inspired by the game.
