The Legend Of Heroes: Trails In The Sky SC Finally Coming Stateside
Fans have begged and begged for XSEED Games to bring the sequel to the first The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky which had been released on the PSP back in 2011. For over two years, it looked as if gamers would not be getting their request answered. Until today when we learn that XSEED is teaming up with Carpe Fulgar LLC, the wonderful company that brought Recettear: An Item Shop’s Tale, to bring The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC to the PSP and PC this winter. In addition, the first Legend of Heroes will be making its way to PC.
Ken Berry, Executive Vice President for XSEED Games, commented that there has “been a constant demand ever since we released the original The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky” and that they are “extremely grateful for our partnership with the passionate localizers at Carpe Fulgur to finally make it a reality.” Andrew Dice, Project Director at Carpe Fulgur, also remarked:
“This is something we’ve had an interest in doing since practically the formation of the company. If you talk about or work with ‘PC gaming from Japan’, as we do, you can’t really ignore Falcom’s huge presence over the past three decades. Trails in the Sky is particularly special, and I’d wanted to work on it ever since the day we started business. I’m thrilled that we will finally be able to bring the game to English-speaking audiences, in partnership with XSEED.”
The series was developed by Nihon Falcom, known for their works such as this series and the Ys series. In The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, you follow the journey of two young bracers in the kingdom of Liberl as they hope to become full-fledged members of the Bracer Guild in Rolent. During their travels, they come across a mysterious conspiracy to overtake the throne. The sequel takes place right after the final events of the first title and has Estelle, one of the heroes, searching to find her resolve as well as taking on a force more powerful than she could have ever imagined.
Though an exact release date has not been announced, we do know that we can expect to see both titles this Winter. The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC will be available for the PSP and PC via Steam while The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky will be making its way to the PC.
