The Legend Of Heroes: Trails Of Zero Evolution Has 100 Voice Actors

By Ishaan . July 31, 2012 . 7:01pm

Falcom, Char-Ani, and publisher Kadokawa Games created an updated version of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Zero for PlayStation Vita. One of the major "evolutions" is a full voice acting for the main story and they had to hire 100 voice actors to do this. (Look at all of those names scroll by!)


The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Zero Evolution also has new touch screen & tilt mini-games, a sub scenario, an arranged soundtrack from Falcom’s jdk band, and a new opening movie. Japan gets the game on October 18 along with a Arianrhod petit nendoroid bundle.

    I think the chances of it being localized decreased T_T
    Either that, or the chance of their being any voices in the localized version went down the pooper D:

    I must import it.

    • MrKappa

      You really thought this had a chance to be localized?
      Sad but it is import or no play.

      • xXDGFXx

        Always has hope. 
        I are now sad panda ;-;

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Lol falcom just outdo themselves there lol.

    100 va for a traditional rpg series? lol, i thought that is only possible for cross over game like sd gundam,robot taisen there lol.

    Falcom is surely getting all my love there lol.T_T

    • Daniel Morandi

      And more JDK Arrange. One cannot have enough of them.

      Dude Falcom, you really love your games and this one is not just a simple port.

      • JazzyMan123

        And they sure love their massive scripts as well, as least for the LoH games.

        • Daniel Morandi

           Massive scrip that I really support.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Oh man and I thought this had a chance to get localized. Oh well. Guess I’ll just import da suckah.

  • Daniel Morandi

    Over 100 actor and not a single localization chance it seems >_>

  • Safros9

    So I imagine this pretty much kills the chances of this coming over. Unless they release it with no voices whatsoever. I would be completely fine with that.

  • Carocaro4

    Gosh that’s a lot of people. But I think it makes the game better. Which is awesome.

    I think the localization could work if they kept all the JP voices.Aksys did that with Fate/extra. I mean most people don’t mind. Heck I just want to see more Legend of Heros overseas really. 

    • JazzyMan123

      Don’t count on it. Any company is going to run smack into licensing issues since there are so many famous VAs in there and the costs would be astronomical.

      And let’s not forget the size of the script…which is said to be even LARGER than SC, golly.

      • Carocaro4

        A gamer can  only hope.

        • xXDGFXx

          One can only hope when XSeed prospers at a significant pace to gain enough financing to cover the costs ;-;

      • xavier axol

        what if they don’t use neither voice (jp or eng) and chop all the unnecessary (script, characters, and events) in the game? will people be cool with that if xseed decides to bring it over with less content? i would as long as the main story is intact, i think it could work if people are ok with that.

        • JazzyMan123

          Like what Atlus did with Growlanser? Sure, could work, but not sure….since there might be some programming aspects related to the voice acting e.g the characters mouths “move”.

          • xavier axol

            this mess up, but how funny will it be if they used the same sound that adults make in show penuts (you know..when the teacher talks to charlie brown and the gang).

      • Farid Belkacemi

         You’re 100% sure about that ? I thought SC was the biggest… o_O

  • Derek

    awww, if this is the case, I wanted to see the credits screen!

  • FFmax

    Jesus Christ, well there’s no way this game coming over here, and to think this is even bigger than Trails of the Sky SC? My god.

  • Morricane

    “an arranged soundtrack from Falcom’s jdk band”…yesssss! :D

  • Hoshi星

    Falcom really don’t want us to play a non-japanese version of this game right? V_V

  • Alexander Aubert

    dahell???? hope xseed can do this

  • What if only the major scenes are voiced?  Regardless, the game will have to come after Trails in the Sky and we still have 2/3rds to go…
    We could get this late into the Vita’s life, when there’s like 4-5 more Legend of Heroes Japan only.

    *sigh* Sometimes I wish Falcom was more popular in past so we could of caught up or something.

  • Kai2591

    100 voice actors!?
    Holy wow.

  • Renzouri

    Maybe XSEED can just leave the Japanese voice-over option? I don’t mind listening to the original audio and have XSEED translate just the text if it means having a faster localization.

    • JazzyMan123

      Japanese VAs = Licensing Issues.

      • Renzouri

        -sigh- Really? One can wish, I guess.

        Nonetheless, XSEED has been doing a good job with the previous Falcom localizations.

  • 100 voice actors = ensuring this game never leaves Japan
