Expect The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC In Mid 2014 Says Xseed

By Ishaan . December 11, 2013 . 9:31am

In 2014, Xseed will publish The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC for PC and PSP in North America. Additionally, the first Trails in the Sky game will be made available for PC, too. Now, we have a slightly better idea of when one can expect the two games.


Responding to a fan asking when Trails in the Sky would be available for Steam on Facebook, an Xseed representative replied: “Shooting for early 2014 for FC [first chapter], and probably more middle of the year for SC.”


Trails in the Sky SC is being localized by Carpe Fulgur, who say the game is their largest localization project to date.

    Meanwhile, at Falcom.

    “Alright guys, let’s announce the sequel to Sen no Kiseki for Q3 next year.”

  • Furu Chi

    Been waiting for this news for like foreveeer!!

  • Slayven19

    Steam FTW!

    • 3PointDecoupage

      Vita FTW

      • PSP FTW?

        • I still play my PSP. ;;;

          • I’m actually gonna repair the screen to keep using it for the longest. Not sacrificing these UMDs upgrading to a Vita, no sir!

          • My UMD drive died on my 2000, so I actually got a new 3000 last year. xD I’m reappropriating the 2000 to use for my JP PSN account and get games digitally on it.

          • You are the one and only.

            (I <3 my PSP, but ;.;)

          • Hey! I don’t have digital copies of a lot of my games- especially my imports. So I can’t play them on my Vita. And I’m STILL playing around with Nayuta. :o

        • Arcana Wiz

          i love my psp… actually i have so many games to beat in psp: gugnir, hexys force, VC2, corpse party BOS…..

          • Once I fix my PSP screen I have to admit I’ll use it for a long time almost exclusively for handheld Puyo Puyo.
            I’m addicted to the thing.

          • Kamakuma

            Ah… Gugnir! That game caught me from my blind side with that difficulty spike near the first time you had to fight outside some castle or another. X’3

    • MrTyrant

      Handhelds and steam FTW!

  • Go2hell66

    So much for Q1

    • XSEED’s teaser video for SC said “Summer 2014” – I don’t think SC was ever intended for Q1.

      • DesmaX

        I think he’s talking about FC.

        • And FC was originally planned for Q4 2013. Except that did have a delay. Tom, on the XSEED forums, explained that holidays, on top of other issues in the company, got in the way of it.

          I just think that the comment is a little confusing. Early 2014″ is still likely Q1.

          • DesmaX

            Well, It was “Winter 2013”, so it would end up being at the end of the month anyway. Doesn’t make that much difference

          • It doesn’t, no. And if you follow Hatsuu on twitter, she recently tweeted about working on it, too. So it kind of helps gauge a little bit of the progress for it. (She’s been working on the icons for the Steam Achievements.)

          • DesmaX

            Oh, she doing the Steam Archievements? Neat, I like the art of the Ys ones

          • I agree. The Ys ones were great! :D

  • Monterossa

    Estelle = Sell

  • Raltrios

    I’m more than willing to wait that long now that it’s a sure thing. Many thanks, based Xseed!

  • 3PointDecoupage

    Everyone pray it doesnt get delayed.

    • TheExile285

      Eh, I’m good as long as we get it.

  • DesmaX

    Well, if it’s in January, I have no problem with it. February/March could be a problem, though

  • Fox

    Via Twitter (yesterday): “fingers crossed” for January 2014 release of FC on Steam.

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    I can’t wait for this… and for Berserk to continue! :V

    • TheExile285

      I wonder which will happen first probably the former ;P

    • baha

      I heard there will be a crossover between Berserk and The Last Guardian

      • anarchy_panty

        There is, but it’s just Guts and Ico sitting in a boat playing [email protected]

        • doubleO7

          I’d read that lol.

  • dark-kyon

    I am the one what think what xseed must try to build hype for the game putting the first game in discount o playstation plus sooner and not how did with ys m.celceta where the same week what the game was out they did a ys games psp sale in psn.

  • Zakai

    Hey everyone do you think it’s better to start over trails in the sky on steam because it’s likely that it will get a better support on this platform ?

    • MrTyrant

      I think you should do it if you want it because the savedata of the first version is used in the second one. I don’t think that if you buy it for psn or steam will make a difference because the important thing is that the game sell well so they can bring the other games too and is likely that will continue working in more steam version of their games.

  • Ty Austin

    I’m glad they didn’t announce this for early 2014. With all the games coming out in March, I would have flipped my desk over.

    Mid 2014 is perfect, will have enough time to finish Bravely Default, Lightning Returns, etc.

  • luckgandor

    I’ve had a wad of cash saved up for it for the longest time. It seems like a huge undertaking, so I hope this does well enough to justify the localization of the third game.

  • Foryth

    Can’t wait! SC has been my most awaited game for a while now. XD Will most likely buy FC again on steam as well.

  • dahuuuundge

    What will happen to the Japanese voices in battle scenes? Does Xseed plan to dub them over? Does Japanese VA licensing still apply to such an old game?

    • doubleO7

      We won’t know if they dubbed anything in SC until they tell us, or at least until a trailer comes out.

    • DesmaX

      Trails in the Sky has them dubbed. Probably gonna be the same thing with SC

    • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

      Fate/Extra was released months after FC without battle scene dubs (meaning, all voices are in Japanese and we have no idea what they are saying) and nobody complained. I’m not sure who started that rumor that games had to have dubbed everything to be on the PSN but I don’t think it’s anywhere near as strict as they make it out to be~.

      • Nobody was complaining, bro, he was just asking if they would continue the dubbing for SC. (Personally, I find it a bit unlikely, but I think it’d be great if it does work out.) Also, the Black Rock Shooter game is on PSN and isn’t dubbed.

        • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

          Oh the complaining wasn’t addressed at him; I meant it in the fact that I’ve heard multiple times that Sony has a policy where games have to be fully translated yet I’ve seen games with japanese voiceovers and nobody [at Sony] complained~.

          • Slayven19

            They did used to have to be dubbed, some companies even stated that without a english dub games couldn’t be released on disc stand alone. And to my knowledge no game has been released stand alone that has had japanese VA only, they’ve always had something like a CE released with the game to make up for that. However you could release a game on psn without a dub which is what companies did. Still whatever they had going in the past probably doesn’t apply to psp games now since the system is dead in the west.

          • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

            Fate/Extra was released on PSN / retail way before the PSP’s demise. So my point still stands~.

    • The voicework for all three games was handled simultaneously, because a number of the files are used across all the titles.

      And yes, no matter how old the property, VA licensing always applies. Even for content that is decades old.

  • Espoir


  • Arcana Wiz

    I’m considering buying two copies of this game (SC) and FC again on steam…. gotta support this!

  • PC as in on Steam? Or I order from Amazon PC? I cannot wait for this! The excitement is too much! I am going to hug my CPU!!

  • Jan Daryll Palanca

    Hope 3rd chapter would still be available on the go/portable consoles.. I heard its going to be released in the year 2019??!!!!! =/

  • Jan Daryll Palanca

    I hope 3rd chapter would still be available on the go/portable consoles… I heard its going to be available in the year 2019?!

  • Tatsuya Fabre

    ‘North America’. Oh well, at least Ao Evolution is out in 2014…

  • icecoffemix

    When will they announce Zwei 2? It’s almost clear that they licensed the “fans” translation too.

  • xzeldax3

    YESSSS!!! Finally you guys got the updated mobile comments! The old ones were pissing me off because it would show a huge list of each person who liked a comment when I tried to upvote.

  • Sergio Macellaro

    I finished the game TODAY (yeah, i know it’s a 2011 game).
    Man what a amazing experience!!!
    I loved.

    My body is ready!
    Bring it on and SnK:TC too (With second game coming my hopes for play it on PSP/PSV grow stronger).

  • CirnoLakes

    Oh, looks like more waiting.
    Well, at least there will be plenty of time to play first chapter in the meantime.
