  • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

    Am i remembering wrong, or did Trails in the Sky FC only have battle voices?

    • JazzyMan123

      FC to 3rd? Only battle voices.

      • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

        Oop, just now saw in the article they meant Ao and Zero

        • JazzyMan123

          Yeah, Zero/Ao have several voiced scenes (not a lot though) outside of battles.

          Zero Evolution on the other hand has a lot of fully voiced story scenes.

  • Tenshiken

    Even though this doesn’t really help its chances for localization, it’s nice to see so much effort be put into the game.

    • Slayven19

      It doesn’t hurt it either. Rarely do niche companies ever do full dub when they localize games.

  • gamerdude

    Okay then I guess. To me some games just work better without voice especially ones with lot’s of dialogue as the pace always feels awkward even if the actors are good.

    • yo1234

      I feel you. unless it’s subtitled like ffx, then i usually just skip the voiced dialog since i end up finishing reading the text way before. Huge problem with japanese dub/english sub IMO. if it was in english we wouldn’t need to read it. But i still like watching/playing my dub every once in awhile. especially if it makes the difference between localization or not.

  • ragingmerifes

    I would be scared if this game had 10x the scripted dialogue of the others.

    • JazzyMan123

      Dialogue? It’s LoH. What do you think?

  • Just when was the release date announced? I was dying to know! 26 sept. is not that far, that’s pretty cool :)

  • kroufonz

    that’s some nice seiyuu line up

    • Carabutifarra

      Kouki Uchiyama FTW

  • 紅蓮

    PS3 or Vita version…which one should I buy…

  • Kai2591

    All my cries.

    • Altoire

      I’ll throw in some of mine too

  • Raze

    Sept 26 eh…
    And 2 days before that…I’ll be playing Ys Celceta…
    Gotta love my Vita at September…

  • Kioku

    One problem with localizing this game is that it will be released for the PS3 and Vita. I don’t think XSEED will localize the game for both platforms.

    • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

      XSEED won’t localize it for either; this is a niche game and the scope of the project is way out of their league. It’s unrealistic to expect a published to take on a project of this magnitude when there’s no profit involved~.

      • Slayven19

        All XSEED localizes is niche rpgs. Also they have to release something or there’d be no point in being a video game company. Anyway they should give up localization rights to another company that can handle it.

        • fds_nextdart

          I doubt any other publisher can handle it either. I don’t think we’ve seen a game in the West with as much text as any of the SnK entries~.

      • KnifeAndFork

        There are physically more gamers in the West then there are in Japan. Why do you think all these NIS/Gust games are still being localized….. -_-

        • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

          There’s a far better userbase in the East than in the West. Somebody from XSEED posted in siliconera how the sales for FC were terrible (and no, please, don’t rush to check vgchartz, that’s not an accurate source). Given the sheer amount of text involved in the middle, how can you possibly justify it~?

          Sure, Atelier games get localized. Then again, their script is probably 1/5 of FC’s~.

          • Anime10121

            Hah, 1/5 is being MUCH to conservative, the Atelier games probably have less than a tenth the script of FC, and that’s not saying much considering First Chapter has the least amount of text in the entire series!

  • PABLO Rapetti Perez

    Just asking for an opinion. I played only 2 hours of the game. My question is, should I wait for a possible localization or start it again on the psp? Do not know the chances really…

    • Skye Johnson

      I highly doubt Trails in the Flash will be localized, or any of the other Trails games released here besides SC, to be honest. If SC sells well, (if it’s released, which I think it will be in some form, but…) perhaps I’ll change my forecast.

      And if there is a localization announcement, due to the large volume of dialogue (and possible voicework if they don’t remove it or something) it will be a long time before it ever sees US soil. Xseed hasn’t even finished translating SC yet. So if you want to wait, you’re going to be doing a lot of waiting, and possibly for nothing.

      tl;dr: You’re probably better off not waiting.

      • KnifeAndFork

        I’ll wait. I think there’s a good chance of this being localized.

        • Skye Johnson

          Well, good luck. It could be awhile. SC alone has been in the translation phase for almost two years now (if it isn’t yet already, not sure, but it’s close). With any luck, it will be worth the wait. I’d certainly like to see it come over.

  • Haku_Luvs_You

    I think it will be a PS3 buy for me. My Vita rarely leaves the house anyways so I might as well play it on the big screen.

  • MrTyrant

    Im sooo going to import this. Cannot wait.

  • Gangrelion

    10x? This must be almost as much voices than Zero no Kiseki Evolution, I guess. I remember stop playing the psp version because of the lack of voices…

  • tubers

    Wow! Wonder if that’s gonna fit well on the VITA’s card with enough bitrate quality (unless they’re gonna use 8GB carts).

  • TheExile285

    Another reason to learn Japanase

  • Please bring this to America! I want this in my PS VITA! T___T


    Alright i hope you guys play the other 5 gaems since you would be lost without them in terms of story Kappa.

  • KnifeAndFork

    What’s with that list of English names?

    • yo1234

      considering most of them don’t look japanese, is it that strange?

  • Prinny Dood

    I hope this comes over to the west.
