After a few Twitter-based teases, XSeed games has announced that Nihon Falcom’s RPG The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter is on its way to North America as a PSN download for PSP (Vita compatible). The new game, as well as its predecessor, will also become available on PC via Steam. This makes sense, as they were both PC games originally.
No specific release dates have been set for these projects. The Steam version of the original Trails in the Sky is expected this winter, while the sequel is set to come at an unspecified time in 2014.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky was met with love when it arrived on North American PSPs two years ago. Unfortunately, the games in this series have quite a bit of text, and translating it is notoriously hard; this severely limited the progress that a small company like XSeed could realistically make on such a project. To the stated delight of the loyal fans and XSeed staff members alike, the long wait is finally coming to an end. Check back for more details.
