Wild ARMs 2, The Legend of Dragoon, and Harvest Moon: Back to Nature coming to PS5 and PS4 on February 21
Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that Wild ARMs 2, The Legend of Dragoon, and Harvest Moon: Back to Nature will launch for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on February 21 as a part of the Classics Catalog included in the PlayStation Plus Premium subscription.
These are the first set of classic PlayStation RPGs to land in the new PlayStation service since the original Wild ARMs in June 2022. Much like that port, these new additions will include emulation bonuses such as up-rendering, rewind, quick save, and custom video filters. Assuming the functionality is the same as Wild ARMs, these titles will also be purchasable separately from a PlayStation Plus subscription for $9.99 each, or free if you already owned the digital version on PlayStation 3 under the same PSN account.
Several other, more modern, RPGs are also being added to the PlayStation Plus subscription on the same date, including Horizon Forbidden West (PS4/PS5), Scarlet Nexus (PS4/ PS5), Borderlands 3 (PS4/PS5), Oninaki (PS4), Lost Sphear (PS4), and I am Setsuna (PS4).
Details about the three classic RPGs can be found below, as described by SIE.
The Legend of Dragoon
Unveil a fantasy of magnificence, deception, magical combat, and retribution as you join swordsman Dart and his companions to harness the spiritual forces of Dragons and triumph over evil. Using a unique and innovative tactical combat system, transform into Dragoons and unleash extraordinary powers. Control a wide variety of characters that wield unique weapons and Dragoon attacks powered by the elements in this unforgettable role-playing game. Experience The Legend of Dragoon – originally released on PS1, enhanced with up-rendering, rewind, quick save, and custom video filters.
Wild Arms 2
It’s about one world hanging in the balance. Where one hero must sacrifice his heart for peace. Where courage and fear, love and malice, heroes and villains go hand in hand. It’s power that exceeds human knowledge. It’s neither dream nor reality. It’s what legends are made of. Experience Wild Arms 2 originally released on PS1, enhanced with up-rendering, rewind, quick save, and custom video filters.
Harvest Moon: Back to Nature
It’s a different kind of RPG for the entire family. As a child you visited your Grandfather’s ranch when vacation plans fell through. Return to the farm that holds fond childhood memories and rejuvenate its long neglected fields. Tend to your livestock and interact with over 50 characters. As you struggle to make the farm something your grandfather would be proud of, one nagging question remains: What ever happened to the little girl that you knew a decade ago?
Experience Harvest Moon: Back to Nature originally released on PS1, enhanced with up-rendering, rewind, quick save, and custom video filters. The game has been converted to PS4 and PS5 consoles and provides newly added features. Consequently, there may be times where the title plays differently from the PS1 version, or where some features may cause the title to not function properly. This version does not support the PS1’s peripherals, therefore some functionality may not be available.
