XSEED is Localizing The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter

We’ve been covering XSEED’s latest tease at a new localization project, which they’ve been teasing over twitter with very zoomed in pictures of skin.

Recently, a Neogaf user pointed out that the curiously zoomed in picture of someone’s skin looks very similar to an image of Agate Crosner, specifically his left arm, which is from a piece of art from the Second Chapter of the Trails in the Sky story arc.

Now we have confirmation that XSEED really is bringing over the much demanded Second Chapter of the Trails in the Sky series, and it’s coming to Steam, PSP, and Vita via digital release of the PSP game. XSEED is localizing the game with the help of Carpe Fulgur, known for their translations of Recettear and Chantelise.

You can view the official press release below:

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky opens in the quaint and peaceful town of Rolent in the Liberl Kingdom. Home to a peacekeeping coalition free of government ties known as the Bracer Guild, the adventure follows two young aspiring bracers known as Estelle and Joshua on their trials to become full-fledged members of this elite organization. As they embark on their quest, their journey will take them across an entire country, unraveling a sinister government conspiracy along the way that’s poised to overtake the throne, threatening the very peace the bracers seek to uphold. Throughout their adventure, players can expect to learn the full depth of these characters’ origins and motivations through dialogue-driven cutscenes and lengthy side-quests.

Trails in the Sky SC, meanwhile, begins immediately after the events in the first game. Following the explosive revelations at the very end of Trails in the Sky, Estelle feels adrift and must find her resolve along with friends both old and new, and face down the true architects of the chaos engulfing Liberl – a force far more powerful and insidious than she could ever have imagined.

Boasting over a hundred hours of gameplay between the two episodes and featuring an engaging narrative that encompasses everything from politics, economics and conspiracies to tourism, traditions and even a cat-speech dictionary, these two titles in The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky series combine to form an incredibly immersive RPG experience. On top of its meticulously crafted world where all actions and inhabitants are accounted for throughout the story, the game also features a meticulously customizable combat system, a massive cast of characters from all walks of life, a variety of landscapes, an in-game newspaper that publishes new issues as the story progresses, and much more. In The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, players are responsible for shaping the world, and will see direct repercussions from their actions as the game unfolds.

Additionally, XSEED also confirmed that the original Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky will be coming to PC this winter as well.

    Article is a tad misleading. The game will be playable on the PS Vita but as a PSP Game. The Vita itself won’t get a native port sadly.

    Ah, sorry about that. I’ll make the correction, I wanted to make sure that people knew it would be playable on Vita, forgot to mention it would be a PSP release, but digitally on Vita.
