And vita! Falcom the creator of the legend of heroes games ( JRPGS ) have announced a new game in the LoH series called The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Flash!

The game is coming out next year only on PS3 and Vita

love you falcom.. now XSEED LOCALIZE THIS!

SE should learn from Falcom!

more:

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Flash has a new battle system dubbed the Tactic Link System. Players still pick commands to fight, but its designed to be fast. Players will overwhelm enemies with the strength of their bonds. The game also has an active voice system so youll hear voices everywhere when youre walking around and you can overhear conversations while in town. Falcom added a free camera you can rotate 360 degrees to check out the map.

looks interesting, I may get it but that just depends on how much funds I'll have by that time. Maybe I'll wait for a discount on it before importing.

lol no worries.. no one is ever fully informared about games and gaming.. heck only this year is when i actually knew the hero green dude in zelda isnt named zelda lol ( off topic i know).. legend of heroes are quality JRPGs.. its been so long since the last time we'v seen a console game of LoH.. anyways this was the lastest LoH game in english http://www.gamespot.com/the-legend-of-heroes-trails-in-the-sky/

It's a series of story-intensive turn-based JRPGs. They're supposed to be really good, but the localization for titles is lagging behind. XSEED has only released Trails in the Sky. Counting this newest announcement, I think we're five games behind now - which matters because the story is huge in these games. The recent PS3 and Vita ports might help in getting the games over here, but who knows at this point.

If Shiro is around, he can give you a better answer about the gameplay since TlTS is still in my backlog.

Ahhh, okay, I see. Are these PSP games? Because if so, maybe I can pick them up for cheap (and if they are, can I find them on PSN?) Also Slash, was that abbreviation done on purpose? :P

The series covers the PSP, PC, PS3, and Vita. The PSP has all of the games though (excluding this newest one). The only localized game is Trails in the Sky, and yes, you can buy it off PSN. I think it's $15 or $20 now so it's fairly cheap.

Also yeah, done on purpose but can you blame me? :3

You pretty much nailed it.
Strategy RPG combat basically. Very story heavy games, quite linear but VERY lengthy.
Great games.

Not sure what to make of this announcement as I havent played anything after Trails I-III. Happy the series is continuing but the school teen theme.... ehhhh..

#15 Posted by SonicNextGen2 (3553 posts) -
Basically this game is made by one of the most underrated RPG devs of all time, Falcom, who can create good games with a tactic like battle system in a way like SMT (If I recall), and also their games can hold amazing music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAUvDSC1Qtc A lot of the games came out for the PSP, most recieved mediocre ratings from critics, but high appraisal from gamers themselves. Don't worry you guys, this game isn't Neptunia or Mugen Souls crap. :D

That is the best acronym in the history of gaming.

Day one import like always for both versions. Unfortunately by the time this game got localized by XSeed if it even does, you could be fluent in Japanese if you started studying in 2013 since this game wouldn't come out till around 2016 at the earliest. Xseed is already 3 Trails games behind with this being the 4th and Falcom keeps adding more text and voice acting per game.

You think NISA got a chance to take this new game over and localize it themselvs? NISA seem much faster in terms of localizing games or heck maybe Atlus

No, there's a level of respect among these publishers and they don't try to take series away from other niche publishers. Only way someone else would take over localizing the Legend Of Heroes games is if Xseed decides to end their deal with Falcom and not work on them anymore. Considering Xseed still does have plans to localize Trails in the Sky 2nd Chapter, it's not happening.

You should be playing COD then, since it's more relevant than any of the sh!t you play.

Omg I am so hyped! This is the best JRPG series in Japan right now. I half can't believe I was right about it being for PS3! Wow!

You need to update the OP! Omg omg omg

For reference, THIS is what the last installment of the series looked like:

Pretty much my thoughts.

#33 Posted by ultraking (6904 posts) -
ive skipped too many rpg's this gen. I may need to give these unique titles a look
#34 Posted by CLOUDsea (1095 posts) -

What these games are about, is the political/supernatural going ons in a continent called Zemuria. So it's kind of like Suikoden, except way more depth and way more story heavy. The last game, Ao no Kiseki, is way more "political" than, say, FFXII.

Not too happy about the school thing, but I guess they want that mass audience for a higher budget project. It's too bad though, because the last games had a police theme that I thought was pretty fresh, if a bit silly.

Concept art is following the fish eye thing again.

is it coming in english ?

if not then whats the point of caring

high school kids with weapons? meh that theme is so overdone

#37 Posted by starjet905 (1970 posts) -

Heh, that just reminded me that I still haven't picked up Trails in the Sky. Should be able to get it for cheap by now, I assume. But, yeah, considering the state of localization of the series, no one will be playing this in English for a long time.

The story and characters themselves will most likely make up for the crappy theme, Falcom has done well with the series so far.
I understand skepticism though, Im kinda worried myself.

I think the school setting is a reason for some concern, but the thing is Falcom has already heavily hinted at the tone the story would take in previous entries. The last games implied that all of the huge stuff was going to go down in this region and I fully expected it to take place in Erebonia. School setting is reason for concern, but it's been done okay before (FFVIII, FF Type 0). Undoubtedly the game will have a heavy political focus that will ground all of the lightweight school stuff. You might say Valkyria Chronicles, but as much as I love the gameplay, VC was already fairly light fare (in spite of subject matter). If it retains the tone of Zero and Ao we should be fine.

the first one was for the PsP and it sold so bad they didn't even bring the PS3 version, so what makes you think that they will bring the sequel?

Gue1

The PS3 version just came out in Japan two days ago and was only announced a few months ago. What are you talking about?

Also, Xseed despite poor sales of the first game are currently working on the translation for the 2nd game in the Sora No Kiseki trilogy in between the other games they localize.

#42 Posted by SonicNextGen2 (3553 posts) -
XSEED is really tolerant of bad sales, they'll localize things they see have potential. However, I don't believe I've seen them localize a PS3 game yet. The Last Story was apparently their most successful title to date.

They are considering localizing the PS3 versions of Sora No Kiseki however that has more to due with Sony PSN and fees associated with that. Xseed are probably the smallest U.S. based niche JRPG localization company. Steam is what their translator who posts at the forums says is most likely for the rest of the series 1st and foremost with PSN being next and physical copies being way last.
#44 Posted by CLOUDsea (1095 posts) -

SCEA could block them from publishing Sora no Kiseki's PS3 port.

#45 Posted by whiskeystrike (12096 posts) -

Never heard of it. Must be a crap game.

btw is that PS3 collection still due?
