Default [PS3/PS Vita]The Legend Of Heroes: Trails Of Cold Steel I & II

Quote:
The Legend Of Heroes: Trails Of Cold Steel is coming to North America and Europe this Fall. XSEED will release the game on both PS3 and PS Vita. Here’s how they describe the game:

Taking place on the same continent as fan-favorite Trails In The Sky, Trails Of Cold Steel is the first game in the series to tread Erebonian soil and explore the inner political conflicts of this oft-mentioned powerhouse in detail. With a standalone story that also delves into the expansive lore that has become synonymous with the series, players take on the role of military students at a time of great turmoil, enjoying school life and bonding with fellow students to earn new abilities in battle, then utilizing those abilities via speedy, tactical turn-based combat with the newly-developed “ARCUS” system.

XSEED will publish Trails Of Cold Steel in North America, while NIS America will handle European publishing duties. XSEED have said they are also publishing Trails Of Cold Steel II.

I'm surprised that they are skipping the other games in the series to release this one over here, but all the same i'm looking forward to playing this!

Well I know that they were trying to release the PSP games of Trails In The Sky trilogy, but I guess that became pretty difficult. I think read the 2nd Trails In The Sky game is coming this Summer, but with lots of delays on it, you have to take that news with a grain of salt. I guess Cold Steel was easier to localize.

In a new blog post, XSEED discuss the upcoming release of The Legend Of Heroes: Trails Of Cold Steel, and why they picked this game to localize when there are other Legend Of Heroes titles still pending. You can find the pertinent quotes below, and if you want to read the full blog post, you can find that here.

On publishing Cold Steel before the games preceding it:

When Falcom approached us with interest in seeing the game localized (and yes, they came to us), I naturally was all for it. But like most fans, I worried because of the two games that preceded it—Zero no Kiseki and Ao no Kiseki (which I will henceforth be calling Trails to Zero and Trails to Azure, though those should not be considered final or official names)—because they have some events in them that seem to tie in with Cold Steel directly. Is it okay to publish the series out of “order”? If we do take on Cold Steel, will people be missing out on some critical information by not playing Zero and Azure first?

I was fortunate enough to be able to express this worry in person to the president of Falcom, Toshihiro Kondo; I was also just as relieved by his response. Immediately, he responded: “Actually, this is kind of intentional. We wanted Cold Steel and Zero/Azure to be playable in any order because we noticed that, with Cold Steel, the demographic suddenly became younger. Many new fans of the series were going back to the old games.”

Why Trails to Azure and Zero haven’t been published yet:

The simple answer is this: Zero and Azure started as PSP games and by the time we would have finished both of them, the PSP will have long been dead as a viable platform. Even though we’re working on Trails In The Sky SC for PSP now, all the effort going into its PSP launch is a labor of love, not profit.

However, there does exist a Japanese PC port of Trails to Zero and a Chinese PC port of Trails to Azure. This means that, theoretically, we could go back to the duology at any time if the series remains successful, since Trails In The Sky has found new life on PC in the west. PC love won’t be falling out of fashion any time soon.


On Trails In The Sky Second Chapter’s release:

Yes, we are still in QA for Trails In The Sky SC for PSP (PS Vita/Vita TV compatible) and PC. And yes, it will also be out before Cold Steel, so you will be able to thoroughly enjoy the conclusion to Estelle and Liberl’s story before Cold Steel’s launch.

I say “conclusion” because, while 3rd is related to content within FC and SC, the overarching story fans were introduced to from the first game will indeed be concluded with SC, satisfactory ending and all.3rd serves as something of an intriguing offshoot from the series and stars a beloved character introduced in SC: one Kevin Graham. Rather than take on the grand scale of FC and SC, it dives even deeper into character development and series lore, with said lore dipping its fingers into every game in the series in some way, shape, or form. Needless to say, I would be thrilled to work on it, and have made my opinion very much heard in the office. Ha ha.

On the status of Trails Of Cold Steel:

We didn’t want to jump the gun on announcing Trails of Cold Steel too early (and we didn’t, because the translation process started a year and a half ago!). As of this writing, not only is Trails Of Cold Steel fully, 100% translated, we’re reaching the final stages of editing as well and will very soon be recording a whopping 10,000~ voiced lines for the game.

The Legend Of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel will be published for PlayStation 3 and Vita this Fall in North America. Meanwhile, NIS America will publish the game in Europe.

Did anyone ever get this? If so what are/were your thoughts on the game?

I decided to show my vita some love and picked up The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel for it the other day. Should arrive tomorrow for me.

I bought the Lionheart edition (PS3), but haven’t played it yet. I want to get through Trails in the Sky FC & SC, first.
