I’ve been playing the Japanese version of Legend of Dragoon on PSP for a few months. I originally played the US version in the winter of 2000 on PS1. I was a senior in high school at the time. Back then, I can’t remember having any trouble with the difficulty of the game. I didn’t have to think deeply or stress out over boss battles. Well, what a different story it is now! The Japanese version has been killing me over and over again. I often have to spend a few hours leveling up my party before the insanely difficult boss battles. In the Japanese version, the enemies hit harder and more often. They don’t drop the same items either.
