XSEED Games has announced that the latest stand-alone story in the Legend of Heroes series will be seeing a North American release of March 29th, 2011. Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky will be available for the low price of $29.99, but a Special Edition will be available for $39.99 which in addition to the game will include a Soundtrack CD, 13×19.5″ Poster, and Bracer Guild replica metal badge.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky opens in the quaint and serene town of Rolent in the Liberl Kingdom — a land that, while outmatched by surrounding countries in terms of size and military might, manages to maintain its global presence through world-class engineering, ample material resources and able diplomacy. Still recovering from a fierce war with the powerful Erebonian Empire just ten years prior, players take the reins as Estelle Bright, a young martial arts expert with an effervescent personality and tenacious spirit, along with her adoptive brother Joshua as they take their first steps in joining the legendary Bracer Guild. Charged with upholding the peace and safety of the citizens, Bracers must first seek qualification in all the regions of the kingdom, and to that end Estelle and Joshua begin their journey.
