Legendary RPG Alundra Ventures Into PSN Store PS One Classics

50°
101w ago - Gaijinworks President Victor Ireland has announced today that the Legendary RPG Alundra is venturing into the PSN Store under PS One Classics!

To quote: I remember being at Tokyo Game Show the first time I saw Alundra. It was in the Sony booth on a single monitor in line with a number of other titles, with little signage.

There wasn't even an attendant managing the area. Important games often have multiple monitors, lots of signage and possibly special happenings as well as a person assigned to work the area, answer questions, help with gameplay, etc. Alundra had none of that.

The presentation at that Tokyo Game show was a metaphor for the game itself - confident, yet unassuming. But appearances can be deceptive - and that was never truer than with Alundra.

I knew what I was looking at the moment I laid eyes on it. I let out a little gasp - OMG, is... is that a new Landstalker game? The look of the main character and the isometric perspective was unmistakable.

I could scarcely believe it was what I thought it was. I tracked down someone to help me in the best Japanese I could muster. They kindly got me in touch with one of the staff working on the title.

"Is this a Landstalker sequel?" I asked, barely able to hide my excitement. No,...

The Legend of Dragoon: PS1 RPG Classic Reborn May 1st on PSN

300°
119w ago - SCE Worldwide Studios President Shu Yoshida has announced today that the PS1 RPG classic The Legend of Dragoon is coming to PSN on May 1, 2012.

To quote: The Legend of Dragoon was one of the last projects I worked on as a producer in Japan Studio and by far the biggest team I managed hands-on.

We started the project in 1996 with only a handful of people, hired one by one as we were building up teams for Ape Escape, The Legend of Dragoon, and Ico simultaneously. During the peak of the game's development, we had well over 100 people working internally in the studio on The Legend of Dragoon - for a PSone game!

We had roughly 10 artists dedicated just to drawing concept art for this gigantic RPG. As the game contained lots of pre-rendered maps and full-motion videos, we were forced to spread the content over four CDs, which was the maximum number of discs that the fattest PSone game case could hold.

It took nearly three years to build the team and develop the game, which was released in December 1999 in Japan and June 2000 in the US. As I moved from Japan to the US in March 2000, I was able to personally handle the game's release in both Japan and the US.

Following the game's launch in Japan, we learned from players that certain parts of the game were too difficult....
