The Legend of Dragoon and Wild Arms 2 are coming to PS Classics later this month. These two classic RPGs launched toward the end of the PS1’s lifespan and represent a culmination of that generation’s game design. It’s been over a decade since the two received a re-release on PSN (which isn’t easy to access these days), and this marks the first time they’re available for modern consoles.
The Legend of Dragoon and Wild Arms 2 will be available for all PS Plus Premium subscribers soon
According to PlayStation Blog, The Legend of Dragoon and Wild Arms 2 will be available as PS Classics for all PS Plus Premium subscribers on February 21. They’ll release alongside the other PS Plus catalog additions that were just announced.
While Legend of Dragoon and Wild Arms 2 are seen as classics now, they weren’t given a fair reception on release. Since they were late releases, they were compared against the entirety of the PS1’s excellent library. This was the golden age of the JRPG when Square dropped fire every two or three months. So, the bar was high.
However, in retrospect, both RPGs are great and definitely worth a play (or replay) for fans of the genre. You can grab them on PS4 and PS5 starting next week.
