The Legend of Dragoon Trophies Revealed

    No grinding "additions" necessary (but you'll want to anyway).

    Last week when Sony announced the titles that would be coming to its PlayStation Plus subscription service in February, JRPG fans rejoiced at the inclusion of a Japan Studios classic, The Legend of Dragoon. The turn-based title was released for the original PlayStation in 2000 and was a modest success. Though it only officially reached 1.3 million players, its fans are passionate and haven’t stopped singing its praises for 23 years. With little done with The Legend of Dragoon by PlayStation (other than a PS3/PSP port over a decade ago), the game’s community took it upon themselves to give the game a retranslation, a remaster, and an achievement list.

    After all these fans’ hard work to make the game more appealing and accessible for players new and old, it’s fantastic to see PlayStation release the game for PS4 and PS5, making it available to millions more players. And the cherry on top: though trophy support isn’t guaranteed for PS Plus classics, Sony has gone through the effort of making a The Legend of Dragoon trophy list.

    As is the case with most of the PS Plus Classic PS1 and PSP game releases, Sony’s The Legend of Dragoon trophy list isn’t very demanding. It can be assumed that the purpose of trophies for these games is encouraging players to revisit retro titles at all, rather than challenging them to play them in a hardcore or completionist playstyle. Most of TLOD‘s trophies are for gaining party members, story progression, and defeating bosses. Only a few are for non-mandatory activities like gathering collectibles, amassing gold, and beating optional boss monsters.

    How to Avoid Spoilers, But Still Get the Platinum

    With these facts in mind, you’ll want to avoid reading through The Legend of Dragoon‘s trophies if it’s your first time with the game. They aren’t packed with context, but they do, in order, reveal which characters you’ll be recruiting and what enemies you’ll be fighting. If you’d like to play spoiler free but obtain the missable trophies, here’s all you need to do over the course of the game:

    • Collect 30 Stardust
    • Hold 7,000G
    • Defeat the three optional bosses located in Mayfil

    There are separate but identical trophy lists for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions of the game. This means if you’re up for two playthroughs, you can end up obtaining two sets of trophies for this beloved JRPG.

    The Legend of Dragoon is available now for $9.99 on PS4 and PS5. It appears users who purchased the game on PS3 or PSP can download the new version for free. It’s also included in the Classics Catalog for PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers.
