I think there are a bunch of people who can create trailing images. I know some who could do this as if they were just going out for a stroll.


I assume it's going to be on Steam, but we don't know until XSeed says something about it.

Trails exists on Windows, PSP, and PS3. Xseed already released the first one on PSP, but I suppose they could jump straight into SC on Steam as well.

Trails in the Sky SC confirmed for PSP/Steam next year, TitS 1 coming to Steam this winter.

Carpe Fulgur (Recettear, Chantelise, Fortune Summoners) is assisting with SC's translation.

Were there any substantial differences between the PSP and PC versions of the first chapter? I don't mind re-buying it on Steam, at least.

Do these games have a save transfer? If they do it's probably impossible for my complete save of the first PSP game to connect to the second on Steam.

Sara pretty much produces miracles from her fingertips, so I have little doubt the PC version will be amazing. Uh, no pressure, Sara. :x

But god, it feels so good to be able to talk about this. Been wanting to for a million years. Please look forward to it!

Meanwhile, shifting back to Yschat, god but I was blown away when I saw the Celceta LE for the first time. I may have to doe-eyes at the senior XSEED dudes to guarantee I get a copy. And according to Tom there's tracks in there dating back all the way to '89 and all the way up to Ys Zanmai. I seriously cannot wait.

Also Zwei 2 seems to be on the cusp of releasing.

Trails in the Sky, or the Sora No Kiseki trilogy. It's a trilogy of turn-based rpgs from Falcom's long-running series "The Legend of Heroes," which is about as old as Ys itself, give or take. The first game was released on PC in 2004, ported to the PSP, the PSP version was brought over, and the rest of the world saw gently caress-all of the PC version until this announcement.

Also they have a gently caress-ton of unique NPC and story dialogue. How much?



That much.

I remember how bummed I was when Falcom announced they were focusing on portables because of trouble with PC distributors in Japan when over here Steam had already blown up. It's fantastic they're turning that around in a big way. Thanks for all the work you're putting into this, guys.

I picked up Legend of Heroes 6 for PC when it was new but never played the PSP version. Aside from aesthetics is it any different from the PC version?

I'm curious which version will end up on Steam, the PC version or some ghastly port of a PSP game...

It'd be the PC version. They said they were adding extras from the PSP version to the PC version but it should be glorious PC mode for display and such.

The announcement got me excited enough to go back and play the first game. No, not Trails in the Sky FC, Dragon Slayer: The Legend of Heroes. Man, Falcom has come a long way since "MANKIND HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE POISONNNNN~".

That's Very good news.

I got Legend of Heroes the same birthday that I got Final Fantasy 2, a bit over 20 years ago. Inevitably I compared the two and thought that FF2 was the better game, but Legend of Heroes was absolutely charming. I wanted it because it was made by the same people who made Ys which is a whole other thought. I ended up importing Legend of Heroes 2 and a little while later the PC Legend of Heroes 3, 4, 5, and 6. I'm very excited to finally play 6 in English after buying it like, 10 years ago.

Honestly, I wouldn't worry too much about a thread name change/purpose change unless you want this to become a general Falcom megathread anyway; once PC Trails FC gets close to release I was planning on making a Trails-specific thread for that release and to lead up to the release of SC. I imagine :trailschat: will move over there once that's up, and this thread will go back to being mostly about Ys.

I so badly need to track down a copy of that at this year's Portland Retro Gaming Expo. Just to have it around and maybe emulate it. The voicework.

I forget, is it known if LoH1 was done by the same studio that did the TG16 version of Wanderers?

Honestly, this thread gets so little traffic and the thread is already kind of a general Falcom megathread that we could probably do both without much trouble. I do kinda want to keep the Ys part in the title just because it's kinda the thread focus, but I wouldn't mind adding something about TitS.

Your call, though. You're the one helping get the game out there.

Continuing the honesty, then , I'll really leave it up to you and other thread denizens. I didn't mean to "dictate" the course of the thread, just that you shouldn't feel pressured to change the thread purely for the sake of a few Goons working on a Trails title, especially when there's going to be a dedicated thread for it in a few months when there's more to immediately discuss.

What I'm tryin' to say here is, I don't want to feel like I'm hijacking the thread, especially since I've got a whole lotta love for a red-headed swordsman and his crew.

You could probably add Legend of Heroes to the thread title if enough people wanted you to but I'd think most people could draw a line connecting Falcom to the series at this point.

I have a pretty good feeling having Trails on PC will generate a lot of hype for the series, maybe enough to get Snk3rd, ZnK and AnK translated as well. That's a far shot, though, these games are huge. They also take about 4 times longer to complete when you have the limits of reading Japanese like a 2nd grader like me!

Also I changed my av to reflect the Trails hype up in here.

Edit: Also Zwei2 is apparently on the edge of BoF releasing that translation patch anytime soon. You'll probably hear me screaming again when it drops.
