PlayStation Plus subscribers have a lot of good reasons to be happy in February. In the past week, Sony announced the lineup of games joining the catalog of PS Plus Premium and Extra. Among the games, we have two 2022 releases – Horizon Forbidden West, and the Quarry, as well as some classics like Resident Evil 7. However, lovers of the PS1 era were surprised to see a nice classic being added to the portfolio: The Legend of Dragoon. The timeless RPG classic is joining the catalog of PS Plus Extra and is coming with some quality-of-life improvements. As per a new report, it will come with a brand new feature 24 years after its launch, it will support trophies!
The Legend of Dragoon (PS1 Classic) will have support for trophies
The PS1 classic RPG will join the PS Plus catalog on February 21st. So far, we didn’t get details from Sony, but a reliable source points to the addition of trophies. True Trophies, which is a specialized website, states that the game will bring Bronze, Silver, and Gold trophies when it releases. For now, there is no word of whether or not it will have a platinum trophy. However, the report notes that the trophies may not be ready and available at the launch of the game. Anyway, they will still come.
Gizchina News of the week
Although this requires confirmation, this wouldn’t be the first PS1 classic game to get this feature. Sony launched a couple of PS1 classics in the service, and some of them have trophies. In special, those who are PlayStation IPs.
Legend of Dragoon is one of the few JRPG games developed by PlayStation Studios. The game emerged in 1999 and was one of the last titles to hit the PS1. Sony decided to launch its own RPG game after the success of the Final Fantasy franchise on the console. The game comes from the now-defunct SIE Japan. It never came to other consoles, nor has it been brought forward to modernity – except for a port to PS3.
More about the game
The game had some of the best graphics from the PS1, featuring the same style of CGI scenes found on Final Fantasy games on the console. The combat system also had unique elements that mixed timed button presses to perform actions, with turn-based elements. We can’t forget the Dragoon transformations, which added extra elements to the combat. The PS1 classic was also one of the most advanced Sony games for the PS1 having a total of 4 CDs – like Final Fantasy VII and IX. The PS1 classic scored 74 on Metacritic, which is not a remarkable score. Still, it’s remembered as a cult-classic game and fans have been dreaming of a remake.
The game will be available for PS5 and PS4 players that are signed in the most advanced tier of PS Plus.
