XSEED Games and Nihon Falcom celebrate five years of Trails saga
With The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky nearing its five-year anniversary of the North American debut, XSEED has revealed details on the upcoming entries in the series. XSEED was excited to show off the first English-language screens of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II, slated to release in Fall 2016.
Additionally, they were happy to officially confirm that they will be localizing the highly anticipated continuation of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky with The Legend of Heroes: Trials in the Sky the 3rd, which is set to arrive on PC in 2017.
To further celebrate the anniversary, Trails in the Sky currently features a special 50% off both on PlayStation Store and PC. Trails in the Sky SC also features a special 30% discount on both formats as well.
The Trails series has sold a combined total of more than 350,000 units to date, and is hailed as one of the largest, longest, and most meticulously detailed turn-based RPG series of all time. It is Nihon Falcom’s most popular and best-selling franchise in their entire 30+ year history.
Ken Berry, Executive Vice President of XSEED Games, stated, “These last five years have been quite an adventure for us. While we’ve had our share of struggles with the series in regards to its often lengthy and arduous localization, I can say with confidence that what we’ve achieved far outweighs any hardships. We are without question committed to our fans, and are absolutely humbled by their overwhelming support. And in return, we promise to do our best to ensure that these two entries in Nihon Falcom’s beloved Trails series receive the same amount of dedication that previous releases have seen.”
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II picks up a single month after the decisive collision featured in the original title, with Rean working tirelessly to right the wrongs that led the country of Erebonia to disarray. It is set to release on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
We’ll keep you updated as more information on both Trails of Cold Steel II and Trails in the Sky the 3rd is shared.
