Falcom Interested In Expanding Trails In The Sky Series On PS3

By Spencer . October 23, 2012 . 11:19pm

trails Falcom is re-releasing The Legend of the Heroes: Trails in the Sky for PlayStation 3. The HD remaster lets players load their PSP save data and continue Estelle and Joshua’s story on your TV.


Speaking with Dengeki PlayStation, a Falcom PR representative said The Legend of the Heroes: Trails in the Sky FC Kai HD Edition is a start and they are going to pay close attention to expanding the Trails series on PlayStation 3. Perhaps Falcom is hinting at The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter and The Third PS3 ports?


The Legend of the Heroes: Trails in the Sky FC Kai HD Edition is scheduled for release on December 13. Check out some PSP and PS3 comparison screenshots here.

    Well that’s just great!

    … …FOR JAPAN. >=(

  • Total_Overdose

    This needs to happen, now! Like yesterday!

    …but I hope it gets the Zero no Kiseki treatment.

    But I’ll support it nevertheless!

    I love this so damn much. On the other hand, I must wallow in despair as I know these won’t hit stateside D:

    Would push an old lady down the stairs for 2nd chapter in English right now. I’m also still fearing the possibility of XSeed one day saying they decided releasing it isn’t a financially viable option and canning it.

    • MrTyrant

      Your fears are my everyday nightmare D:

  • Kibbitz

    And I thought December would be quiet and restful for the wallet. Oh well, Christmas prezzie to myself =x

    Good. Hopefully more developers start porting their psp games to ps3 or pc since I don’t have one.

  • KHSoraKeyBlade

    I too are interested in Falcom expanding the Trails in the Sky series on the ps3.

  • kroufonz

    I am heavily interested with the idea of Falcom game on PS3:P

  • Kevadu

    It would be bizarre to release FC like this and *not* SC, so I always thought it was kind of assumed…

  • Kai2591

    I was thinking of buying Trails In The Sky once I get a Vita, but what if they’ll localize the PS3 version as well…? hmm…

    • Ladius

      This version is compatible with the PSP release’s saves, so you could very well play it on your Vita and then do a second playthrough on PS3 if XSeed manages to localize that port :P

      • Kai2591

         Good point…but I don’t do more than one playthroughs haha.
        Just one playthrough takes forever for me lol.

  • katzedan

    Xseed, where are you? We really need  you now! /o/

       They’re working ! ;)

      • MrTyrant

        Do you work with them?

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Farid-Belkacemi/1073052585 Farid Belkacemi

          I would love to ! :D

  • Nemesis_Dawn

    Hey, while you’re expanding that audience, why not see if it’ll sell in the West too? I hear Xseed might be responsive to that sort of thing…

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001059050301 Jermaine Kanhai

    Let it come to the West, let it come to the West, let it be in English, let it be in English – can’t afford a PSP / Vita.

  • http://www.segalization.com/ Kuronoa

    Yes please let us finish the saga.

  • KingGunblader

    Oh, that’s cool… Hey, Falcom, are you interested in expanding the Trails in the Sky series in North America?

  • MrTyrant

    Isn’t ps4 coming next year? D:

    • Godmars

       More than likely they could put the game out in a few months. Before or even after the PS4 is announced or released.

    • Nemesis_Dawn

      Doesn’t mean anything. Some of the best PS2 games came out for about two years after the PS3 was released.

    • Hidayat246

       sony america still have many game released next year (see Last Of US & God Of War)

      so that is imposible

  • Alex Cattaneo

    A totaly new dev for the ps3 system legend of..not ports and more ports

  • kupomogli

    HD versions of all three on a single bluray would be better.  Kind of a bs move to release them seperately seeing how they’ve already made money off them.

    • Godmars

       Given that they’d be losing money I’d rather see three separate discs. If its more likely to get a western release I’ll be glad to see on PSN.  

    • Ladius

      This remaster is sold at budget price, and the Trails games, being some of the meatiest jrpgs ever made (Trails 1 is the smallest in the series, and yet it’s a game that can last you 80 hours if you try to 100% it), offer plenty more valute than most games out there.

      Also, stand alone releases make those HD Remasters more likely to be localized as separate PSN games than a Collection that would be doable only after XSeed fully translates the whole trilogy.

  • neo_firenze

    Well, there couldn’t be a better opportunity for Xseed.  They’ve already done substantial work on SC localization, so it seems very reasonable that they should be able to use that work for the inevitable SC PS3 port. 

    No excuse any more that PSP is a dead platform or that Vita doesn’t have enough users to make it a viable decision to do a PSN version of the PSP game.  PS3 has plenty of western RPG fans.

  • Godmars

    Wonder if NIS wold be interested in sharing their animation techniques for Disgaea with Falcom. 

  • Jirin

    XSeed, you have your mission.

    A niche developer is developing for a console instead of one of those torture devices, designed to strain the eyes and irritate the thumb joints of anyone over 20.  Tis a time for celebration.

    I want this so badly it hurts!! Being able to load my save data sounds so… awesome… I can’t… *sniffle*

  • Lester Paredes

    I just hope that they bring out the next games in the series over here. I’d prefer to play on my vita, but i’ll settle for a PS3.
