UPDATE 2: XSEED has released a very brief announcement teaser reaffirming that the PC release of the first Trails in the Sky will be this Winter followed by Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter in the Summer of 2014. Check it out below.
UPDATE: XSEED Games has confirmed to RPGamer that they are localizing Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC. In fact, the publisher is partnering with Carpe Fulgur (Recettear: An Item Shop’s Tale) to speed up the translation process, given the immense amount of text in the game.
The first chapter of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky will be coming to PC later this Winter, followed by the debut English releases of SC in 2014 for PC and PSP. All release will be digital-only.
ORIGINAL STORY: The folks at XSEED are at it again. Once more, they are taking to twitter to tease a planned announcement. Earlier tonight they released a series of tweets focusing on an excerpt taken from a larger image. At first said excerpt was only a pixel wide, but eventually it culminated in the following:
Over at Gematsu they believe this comes from a wallpaper featuring a character (Agate Crosner, to be exact) from The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter. Looking at the image myself I am inclined to agree with them and you can see it below and judge for yourselves.
This is the second game in the Trails in the Sky trilogy with the first having being released in North America back in March of 2011 for PSP. So it has been a while, especially considering Second Chapter originally came out in Japan for PSP in 2007. At this point, I think its safe to say that a release of Second Chapter outside of Japan had become little more than a forlorn hope, but let us all keep our fingers crossed that things work out.
We should know sometime tomorrow one way or the other and we will update this story at that time. In the meantime stay tuned to Blistered Thumbs for gaming news the world over and be sure to share your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.
