The The Legend of Dragoon was praised for its artistic elements like lush backgrounds and detailed character models, and even given compliments for some of its more inscrutable battle system elements. The reward went far beyond just positive critical reception though, as the game would sell astoundingly well in both the US and Japan, which was extremely rare for a JRPG of any type at the time.
So given all of that, what happened? Why did this game that launch to such success and then just kind of cease to become anything else? What the hell happened to The Legend of Dragoon and where is The Legend of Dragoon 2?
