image You heard what Xseed had to say about the progress of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter. We also asked Falcom’s president Toshihiro Kondo about his thoughts and the challenges of bringing The Legend of Heroes Trails in the Sky Second Chapter overseas.


"As you know, [The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky] SC is on two UMDs. With the retail UMD market the way it is in America and Europe, it would be very difficult to release it as a packaged product. Because the game has two UMDs, making it a downloadable title for PlayStation Network takes a lot of programming effort on our side to make it one file so it is compatible with the PlayStation Store," Kondo said to Siliconera.


"The Trails in the Sky series, even in Japan is still shipping thousands of units a month. We’re getting thousands of new fans a month for the series as it continues to grow. At some point in the future, we would like to expand on the series by bringing it to other platforms. The best I can say right now is please be patient. We would like to bring the rest of the games over to the West. If all of the fans can keep bugging Xseed they will keep bugging us and perhaps we can work out a solution together in the future."
