Legend of Dragoon lands on US PSN on May 1

It's a long time coming, but fans of late-lifecycle PSOne RPGs will finally be able to download The Legend of Dragoon when it launches on PSN on May 1. Developed by Sony's Japan Studio, The Legend of Dragoon has been available on the Japanese PSN since December, 2010.

Sony Worldwide Studios president Shu Yoshida recalls some of the hurdles of developing a four-CD game for the PSOne over on the PlayStation Blog. It took "well over" 100 people to develop the JRPG over the course of three years, starting in 1996 as a team of only a handful of people. And now that it's on PSN, it'll probably take you just as long to download it.
