Falcom’s Next Legend Of Heroes Game Starts With This Video

By Spencer . July 8, 2011 . 1:42am

While we’re waiting for The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter, Japan is gearing up for The Legend of Heroes: Ao no Kiseki (Trails of Blue). This PSP game picks up where last year’s The Legend of Heroes: Zero no Kiseki left off and that’s a sequel to the Trails in the Sky trilogy.


Yeah, there’s a lot of Falcom games to catch up on, so it’s going to be awhile before the West sees the opening video of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Blue in English.



Japan gets the PSP game on September 29.

    Watching this makes me all the more curious about the trails series! 

  • DanteJones

    Er wait, so Sky has chapter 1 and 2, and Zero is a sequel to chapter 2? Then Blue comes after Zero? Brain detonation in 3, 2, 1…

    • Hours

      No, it goes like this:

      Trails in the Sky
      Trails in the Sky SC (Second Chapter)
      Trails in the Sky The 3rd (Third Chapter)
      Zero no Kiseki
      Ao no Kiseki

      Trails in the Sky was a trilogy originally. (Though the second game wraps up the main story, the third game is more of an add-on which sets up future plotlines and wraps up some sidestories.)

      Zero no Kiseki is the start of a new story in the same world. (Different country though.) It focuses on a new set of characters, but some characters and plotlines from the Trails in the Sky trilogy are present too. And Ao no Kiseki is the sequel to Zero no Kiseki, so it picks up where Zero left off, still focusing on the same set of characters.

      • DanteJones

        Ahhh okay, so Ao can be considered a “second chapter” of Zero then, that’s pretty cool. Holy crap though, we have a long way to go if we’re just on the first game.

        • Pretty much exactly. And yeah, the backlog is terrifying at this point, catching up is going to take a herculean effort. We can only hope there’s a multi-year lull between Trails in the Blue and whatever comes next (assuming Blue doesn’t wrap the series entirely, although this seems unlikely).

          • Ladius

            I don’t think they will wrap up the series any time soon, we have still so much to see in Zemuria it would be a crime.

            Now, even having those games only available in Japanese is a crime, but that’s another matter I guess :(

    • Tatsuya1221

      Not exactly, Fc is the first, SC is the second, the 3rd is the last game in the trails in the sky trilogy, zero takes place directly after the 3rd, and obviously ao no kiseki takes place after zero.

  • Hours

    This series is so excellent. I want this game really badly, but we’ve got three more games to get in English first.

    I’m support you XSEED!

    • PrinceHeir

      Xseed you know what to do :D

  • skymap

    Another major Japanese release for September. Unfortunately, I can’t bring myself to continue on with the first one.

  • Ladius

    When I think about the odds of seeing Ao localized in any shape or form sadness suddenly overcomes me :(

    I fear our only chance may be getting XSeed to licence the inevitable Chinese PC port and putting it on Steam in four-five years after they’re done with SC, The 3rd and Zero, since a PSP release would be exceedingly late.

    • neo_firenze

      The one glimmer of hope for Zero no Kiseki and Ao no Kiseki… the Vita will play downloadable PSP games.  So there will still be a viable system in North America that can play these games if Xseed is willing to bring them over on PSN once they get through Trails in the Sky 2&3. 

      This is also one of the reasons I think companies like Xseed and NIS would be smart to not give up on PSP releases now just because the retail store market for PSP games is weak in NA these days… they can have some of the very few newer RPGs available for Vita right at/near system launch, which is a time when a lot of people are hunting for new games to play on their new system.  Stuff like Trails in the Sky 3 or Makai Kingdom Portable would really fit the bill. 

  • I hope that all questions are going to be answered in Ao no Kiseki.

  • can’t wait no more > <
    plz faster xseed!!!

  • Shinji Kazuya

    Oh man! Will we ever see this awsome game, and even the others before it, in English? ;_;

    DAMN! The music at the end is EPIC! With the chorus and stuff. Anyone know what Legend of Heroes it is from?

    • No, it’s not part of the original soundtrack, at least from the first version. Maybe it’s part from this Aoi no Kiseki.

      • Shinji Kazuya

        I always love epic chorus battle music. That one from the end of the video won’t come out of my  head now > <

        • Epic chorus battle music x epic antagonist/villain last battle. Those are my favourite combinations.

    • It’s definitely a new one for Ao no Kiseki.  If I remember correctly, there was a special Falcom music compilation album that shipped with any game you ordered during their anniversary celebration at the beginning of the year.  The last 4 tracks on that album were new, untitled songs for Ao.


    OMFG!! DO WANT!! XSEED!!! D:


    I’m the only one who want the man with the scar and the police officer as a permanent party members?

    • Shinji Kazuya

      But there's still 2 games till Zero no Kiseki and then to Ao no Kiseki.
      PSP will be dead by then ;_;

  • I really want this to be amazing.  Falcom’s been awfully quiet as far as releasing new games since Zero no Kiseki, which really isn’t like them.  I’d like to think that it’s because this and the game they’re developing for Vita are going to be the best games they’ve put out yet.

    • It’s only been a year since they released Zero, though. It’s pretty clear they’ve been focusing all their energies on this game.

  • kyaaaaaaaaa…. aaa…. *faints* I must stuff my brain with Japanese faster D: Wheres the *download to your brain learn on the spot* function from the Matrix when you need it ;~;
