The Legend of Heroes: Trails In The Sky SC
Trails in the Sky: Second Chapter follows the story of Trails in the Sky, a game that released on the PSP way back in 2011. “Trails” (no Kiseki in its native tongue) is a long-running franchise of RPGs that dates back as far as 1989 in Japan. Trails in the Sky is a sub-series set in The Legend of Heroes universe, and is developed by Nihon Falcom – it was translated by XSEED Games for us to enjoy. One of the other active (and downright excellent) sub-series has been reviewed recently at the site, so you should definitely check that review as well – Trails of Cold Steel Review.
Since this is the Second Chapter of the Trails in the Sky story, you have to be aware that this game is 100% a direct sequel to the previous game since the story for Second Chapter picks up only a few hours after the cliffhanger from the first game.
Trails in the Sky: Second Chapter (SC) just released last week, so we FINALLY can play this awesome new RPG from Nihon Falcom and XSEED!
According a pretty lenghty but REALLY interesting article posted a few days ago over at Kotaku, the localization project for Trails in the Sky: SC was actually a nightmare for the people doing it, and almost got cancelled in the process. Luckily for us, the game released and the developer is now willing to talk about the development issues encountered.
XSEED Games got in touch with us to let us know that their upcoming RPG The Legend of Heroes: Trails In The Sky SC will be released NEXT THURSDAY (October 29) on both PSP and Vita platforms! That’s right! It was previously announced as “coming Holidays 2015”, but I didn’t expect this game to come out THIS early!
