Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky sequel coming to PSP, PC in 2014

By Heath | September 7, 2013 at 11:36 am

Xseed wanted the localization of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter just as badly as you did, but the sheer size of the project caused inevitable slowdown. The stars are now aligned, however, and the company has announced that the sequel to the Nihon Falcom hit The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky will finally arrive in North America next year. It will do so exclusively as a downloadable game; on the PSP and PSV by way of the PlayStation Network and on the PC via Steam. PC gamers who haven’t played the PSP-exclusive (well, PSP exclusive in North America) first installment of the Trails in the Sky trilogy will be able to do so without a PSP this winter, when the original also arrives on Steam. Exact release dates are not yet announced, but we’ll keep you updated.

NIS America said goodbye to three key employees, meanwhile. The departed trio formed a new company called “acttil” in deliberate, grammar-killing all lowercase. The group intends to localize Japanese games, books, e-books, and whatever else they find interesting.
