Earlier this afternoon, Publisher XSEED Games dropped news on their Facebook page that they are aiming for a mid-2014 release of their upcoming The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC roleplaying title. The much anticipated sequel is scheduled for a PSP and PC digital release, making sure to cover the bases of most gamers out there. (After all, the majority of us have access to at least a PSP or PC, right?) While this forthcoming game is a follow-up to the franchise’s first installment — which launched in North America on the PlayStation Portable way back in 2011 — the original title is still planned for a Steam re-release this winter, in an effort to catch players up to speed on the series’ story if they missed out on the initial PSP title. Fortunately, in the very same Facebook post, that Steam version of the First Chapter was confirmed for a Winter 2014 window.
In other words, the first half of next year will be a good time for Western gamers who have been clamoring to get their hands on some Legend of Heroes. For a look at what the series is all about, scope the trailer below. Just don’t be put off by the poor video quality.
